Yesterday I shared concept art from artist Rob McKinnon which showed a deleted Lex Luthor scene from Justice League, but I also noticed that he did some artwork for Batman v Superman of a Superman villain who never ended up in the movie.
In the concept art above, you can see that Metallo was considered for Batman v Superman at one point. My best guess is this is from the version of the script that David Goyer wrote, before Chris Terrio came in and rewrote the movie and it became “Dawn of Justice”.
In a Batman v Superman interview, director Zack Snyder revealed that he almost put The Joker and The Riddler in the movie as well.
What do you think of this design for Metallo? Would you liked to have seen him as a villain in Batman v Superman? Let me know in the comments below.
