As loyal Smallville followers know, Brian Austin Green is coming aboard the show's ninth season in the role of Metallo.
In a two-episode arc, starting with the September 25 premiere, Green portrays John Corben, a new Daily Planet reporter that grows into the aforementioned villain.
Due to an accident, Corben is outfitted with a mysterious heart made of kryptonite. Speaking to TV Guide Magazine, executive producer Kelly Souders says Corben is turned into “a rough version of Metallo, a first attempt at the technology, and eventually he’ll get sleeker.”
So, will we him again?
“Well of course, it’s Smallville,” she said. “We’re actually throwing some ideas around right now in the hopes that we might be able to bring him back for another episode.”
