Via Batman-News, some concept art from illustrator Rob McKinnon has arrived online showing a design for the kryptonite-powered cyborg Metallo:
You may recall that way back in 2013, a rumour emerged claiming that Metallo would be the main antagonist in Batman v Superman, and as the above concept art shows, he was certainly considered at one point or another.

And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
