    Just Who Might Be Villain in 'Batman vs. Superman'? Well It's Not Lex...Sort Of

    With today's news of Gal Gadot being cast as Wonder Woman in the still untitled Batman vs. Superman movie, speculation can now turn to who will be the main antagonist in the film.

    It's already been reported in that same announcement from Variety that Warner Bros. is looking at 300: Rise of an Empire and Zero Dark Thirty actor Callan Mulvey for the villain role but no word as to whom it is.  Well, according to our sources here at ThinkMcFlyThink, the villian role Mulvey is being considered for is none other than...Metallo.

    That's right, the man with the sheilded metal body and Kryptonite for a heart is said to be the main baddie in Batman vs. Superman.

    But that's not all.

    According to our sources as well, Mulvey was also at one point considered for...Lex Luthor.

    Now I don't know if this means Lex was originally the main villain and is now out of the film after rewrites (as some have speculated) or if WB decided to go with someone else for the role. but we can tell you that Mulvey was indeed looked at for the part.

    Mulvey's name seems to make sense for the studio as they like to stay in-house and work with people they're familar with (a la Ben Affleck).

    So what do you all think?  Is Mulvey a good candidate for Metallo, or even Lex for that matter?  Or would you like to see someone else play either role?

    Sound off below.

    As soon as they mentioned him, I immediately thought Metallo. I don't quite see Lex, but I suppose it could have worked.

    This sounds like guessing based on info that is out there rather than "sources"

    Honestly, idk about Mulvey for either role. Some other websites reporting that Dwayne Johnson is in talks with DC to be GL John Stewart. Dream casting Lex Luthor: Joaquin Phoenix, Metallo: The Rock. Good way to introduce kryptonite as well.
