Is Dan Amboyer Metallo In Batman Vs. Superman?

Could Dan Amboyer actually be playing Metallo in Batman Vs. Superman and not Green Lantern?

The WB execs recently stated in an article with Entertainment Weekly that there is no reference to Green Lantern in Batman Vs. Superman, and that we might not see Green Lantern until the 2020 Green Lantern Corps movie, which is four years away.

So what’s been up wth Dan Amboyer who has been teasing “green” on his Instagram?

The latest has a pic of Amboyer bathed in green light, with Amboyer adding to the post: “find your lime light.”

While that obviously seems like a Green Lantern tease, if we go by the words above that we might not see Green Lantern for four more years, Dan Amboyer may be playing another “green” character. We an probably scratch Martian Manhunter off the list because Supergirl is using him, so possibly Metallo sounds likely.

The green would fit with Metallo as the Superman nemesis is imbued with Kryptonite, and in the latest comic books, John Corben is a member of the mitary working under General Lane. In Batman Vs. Superman, Dan Amboyer is said to be Lieutentant Christie, a drone pilot.

Dan Amboyer Confirmed For Batman Vs. Superman & Role Revealed: Green Lantern?

Following rumors, it’s confirmed Dan Amboyer has a role in Batman Vs. Superman.

Pop Sugar spoke with the actor who talked about filming the movie where it’s revealed Dan Abmoyer is playing a character named “Lieutenant Christie.” iMDB also lists Amboyer as playing a “Drone Pilot,” and the latest rumor stated Amboyer is actually Green Lantern (you can read more about that here).

What was the set like?

It was awesome. I got there right at the beginning of shooting and it was crazy because my first day people were showing me around and all of a sudden the Superman suit comes by — and it’s giant. It’s not something you can hang up. So that was insane. But what I thought was really interesting was that they filmed a lot of it on film, not digital. So a lot of the sets were actually built. So, all of a sudden, you’re on another planet, literally. Everything is so intricate and perfect. You think so much of that is just CGI and postproduction, but it was actually there. 

On working with Zack Snyder:

 It was interesting. He was a cool guy. I don’t know if people know this, but he’s really big about fitness on set, even as far as catering. So, he’s always encouraging healthy food, which is great. He even makes you do push-ups in between takes.

On what scenes he filmed:

 Um, I don’t know what I can say that’s not spoilery. So, let’s just say, I filmed good ones.

Amboyer reveals he auditioned for two other DC superheroes:

I auditioned to play Superman in Man of Steel originally and I auditioned for The Flash. I’ve constantly been coming back to these characters.

Confirms other cameos in addition to Wonder Woman and Doomsday:

 It’s hard for me to keep up with what’s officially been announced, but yes, there are some other possibilities.

Aboyer seems to indicate his name in the movie is used for undercover work (which obviously may mean he has a different name):

 Oh, yes. It does appear, but it’s kind of an undercover thing. The name appears on me at one point.

Amboyer is teased about his favorite color being green.

No? Blue. Definitely blue, but I appreciate nature as well and everything green.
