'Batman vs. Superman' Adds Holly Hunter & 'The Wolverine' Co-Star
With the larger roles cast in the developing Warner Bros. sequel to Man of Steel, which may or may not be called Batman vs. Superman still, the supporting cast is starting to fill up. Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck are in the hero roles of Superman and Batman, and Fast & Furious franchise star Gal Gadot is taking the role of Wonder Woman. The most recent casting additions were Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons as mentor/butler Alfred. Now Deadline reports Holly Hunter (The Incredibles, Broadcast News), Tao Okamoto (The Wolverine) and Callan Mulvey (300: Rise of an Empire) have also joined. Read on!
We're not sure what roles Hunter and Okamoto are taking at this point, but they join returning Man of Steel cast members Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane in the sequel. This cast is getting pretty big. As for Mulvey, back when Gal Gadot was hired as Wonder Woman, there was news that the 300: Rise of an Empire star was being eyed for a villain role, but not the primary antagonist, which seems to be Lex Luthor now. The film doesn't start shooting until later this year, so hopefully we find out some plot details before long. Batman vs Superman arrives on May 6th, 2016, and will be facing Captain America 3.
