AceShowbiz - "Smallville" will get a taste of vengeance when The CW's series returns next Friday, October 2. Continuing to unravel what happens in the life of young Clark, the second episode entitled "Metallo" will take the focus on one of the superhero's new foes, who is played by guest star %cBrian Austin Green%.
After being struck by a truck, John Corben wakes up alone in an abandoned apartment as a man-machine with a Kryptonite heart. Realizing he now has superhuman strength, he sets out to exact revenge on the Red-Blue Blur, who he perceives to be an irresponsible vigilante. Against Clark's wishes, Lois involves herself in the Red-Blue Blur's investigation, and winds up getting kidnapped by Corben.
Metallo appears in a two-episode arc beginning the season premiere on September 25. Although short-lived, the appearance may be stretched to longer commitment. "We're actually throwing some ideas around right now in the hopes that we might be able to bring him back for another episode," Souders explained to TV Guide Magazine earlier.
