Batman v Superman BTS photo might reveal which actor is playing Thomas Wayne

Aug. 7, 2014by: Jesse Giroux

"Is The Comedian playing Batman's dad?" That's what many people are wondering after a possible set photo from BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE surfaced on Twitter last night. People have been posting a bunch pictures from the Michigan set of the Zack Snyder movie, and one of the most recent images to land online features a painting many think is of Thomas Wayne. If it is Thomas Wayne, he looks a hell of a lot like Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

Some believe since Jeffrey Dean Morgan also starred in Zack Snyder's WATCHMEN, there's a chance he'll be playing Thomas Wayne in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE. I have to admit, the painting does look quite a bit like the actor, but of course we have no way of actually knowing if it is him or not.

However, even if Jeffrey Dean Morgan is the man in the painting, it doesn't mean he will actually appear in the flesh in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE. He could appear in a flashback, but maybe this is just something fun Morgan did for Zack Snyder as a favor. What do you think? Is this a painting of Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Thomas Wayne?

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE will open on March 25, 2016.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan for Lobo! He was so good as The Comedian, I really hope he gets to do another big menacing jester.

He's not identical, but look at Bardem in Pedita Durango and Morgan in Watchmen and tell me they don't have a lot in common...

Is it just me?

Or is Jeffrey Dean Morgan not the bloody twin brother of Javier Bardem? I swear they were separated at birth or something.

I totally agree.
My girlfriend have only seen No Country For Old Men, Biutiful, The Sea Inside and Vicky Christina Barcelona because she thought it was starring JDM.
She was disappointed is was JDM but liked the movies none the less.

Definitely looks like him. I doubt he'll appear in SvB though, that sounds like it would be a lot crammed into that movie to get into the nitty-gritty of Batman's origin. I mean I thought the idea of having an older and experienced Batman was so we didn't have to go through another origin story after having seen Nolan's trilogy (which wrapped just a few years ago). If anything, it seems like Snyder just used JDM as inspiration for the painting, which may lead into a cameo in a future Batman

He's been on "Magic City" on Starz, and you missed him in the Powers Boothe role in the "Red Dawn" remake.

I have zero problem with that. I love Morgan, while many criticize Watchmen, it's hard to find fault with his portrayal of The Comedian. Now if we could just get a Spenser For Hire movie with him as Spenser and Idris Elba as Hawk...

Just one day. Just one day this website will go a single news day without a story from a superhero movie when there are plenty others being released year round. Especially one that is only a rumor. But that day is not today.

It wasn't the tornado that killed Pa Kent, it was the brutal head-on collision with a flying cow that did him in.

Dos Equis Man in his prime

Yah this is from the new Dos Equis ads that are about to air, about the youth of the most interesting man in the world. One of the things that makes him so interesting is that he was Batman's real Dad, not Mr. Wayne Sr.

I hope this is true. He's a really great, underrated actor and I would love to see him involved in something as big as this film.

I mean, he was rumored to be in the running for Bruce Wayne/Batman himself before Affleck was cast, and there's also the connection with Watchmen. So it wouldn't be exactly surprising if he were playing Thomas Wayne via flashback and photos.

And FYI, this would be another character who is dead, that he would be playing. Which seems to be every other role that

I don't know if he would be better, but I would say just as good. He was one of the few older actors I was hoping would get the role considering they were looking for more of an older Batman who was more experienced already.
