It's obviously a visual nod to Iron Man, which I think is kind of funny — Metallo made his first comics appearance about five years before Iron Man did, and Metallo was originally... yep, a man wearing a metal suit, instead of having a metal body wearing a flesh suit. It's funny how things go round and come round. So Iron Man ripped off Metallo, and now Metallo rips off Iron Man.

It is funny, isn't it? I was reading the Wikipedia entries for the two characters, and I kept getting mixed up about which details belonged to whom. :) That kryptonite heart is very evocative of the film, but almost brutal in its design. I find it to be kind of horrific, but maybe that's exactly what they're going for.
