'Smallville' exclusive: Brian Austin Green returns as Metallo!

Posted on

Guess who’s rising from the dead on Smallville? Hint: He’s got a ripped bod, a green heart, and his name appears in the headline of this story. And his photo’s to the left. And… oh, enough beating around the bush, it’s Metallo!

Sources confirm to me exclusively that Brian Austin Green will reprise his role as the kryptonite-powered villain in this season’s 18th episode, scheduled to air in the spring.

Green debuted as journo John Corben (a.k.a. Metallo) in Smallville’s season premiere back on Sept. 25. He was killed off the following week when he accidentally ripped his mechanical heart out of his chest. Hey, it happens.

How on Earth will Smallville resurrect the DC Comics baddie? I’m guessing it’ll involve a ticker transplant. Got a better theory? Happy Metallo’s being exhumed so soon after his “death”? Head to the comments!
