Holly Hunter and two others join the cast of Batman vs Superman

04.03.2014

Three more names have been added to the cast of BATMAN VS SUPERMAN, one easily recognizable and two not so much. Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey and Tao Okamoto are all joining the Zack Snyder sequel in undisclosed roles. According to The Hollywood Reporter, all three will portray characters newly created for the film and not existing ones from the pages of DC Comics.

Holly Hunter is the Oscar-winning actress known for her roles in RAISING ARIZONA, ALWAYS, THE FIRM, and as the voice of Elastigirl in THE INCREDIBLES. Callan Mulvey recently appeared in 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE while Tao Okamoto played Hugh Jackman's love interest in James Mangold's THE WOLVERINE. It is almost impossible to tell how any of them will integrate into the story or even if they will be part of Batman, Superman, or Lex Luthor's part of the plot.

With shooting on BATMAN VS SUPERMAN stil slated to begin this year, the cast should be coming together in the coming weeks in preparation for filming. These three will join Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Laurence Fishburne, Amy Adams, and Diane Lane in the quickly expanding cast. Hunter, being the most recognizable name of the three new additions, will likely be playing a somewhat substantial role while the other two may have neglible parts. Hopefully we know more soon.

BATMAN VS SUPERMAN is slated to open on May 6, 2016.

Stories like this are funny in the sense that when the movie comes out...and you see someone mentioned in a story like this... they've only got about 2 minutes worth of screentime...which begs the question if we really needed to know about every little casting decision.

Disappointed that Hunter won't be playing the Huntress.

I know it says they're playing new characters, but Holly Hunter would be awesome as Maggie Sawyer.

I bet Holly Hunter would play some kind of law enforcement officer. She has that quality of a go getter.

How do you go through Holly Hunter's credentials and not bring up The Piano? I'm just saying. She did win an Oscar.

Also, bitch on people. The script that they are making needs more people. That's just how it works. Deal with it.

Despite her great performance in The Piano, I like her a lot in Copycat. Underrated movie too, if I might add.

Let's just cram every actor not currently committed to another project into this movie! More characters only makes it more awesome, right?! Right? Guys?

You guys need to stop comparing Marvel to DC. Marvel has always been lighter and more kid friendly, with DC being for more mature readers, and the films are looking that way too. Marvel has dark characters too, but not nearly on the level of DC, completely different imo.

Also, for all you morons complaining about the people who died in MoS, what exactly do you think would happen if gods started fighting in the middle of the street?? It's a movie(a damn good one too), get over yourself!

Callan Mulvey was last seen by me in Captain America: Winter Soldier. Good enough for Marvel, good enough for DC. And Holly is wonderful.

Even though it sucks they had to push the film back, I'm glad to see DC taking their time with this film and delivering us another great comic book film.

I just hope we get confirmations of a Flash, Green Lantern 2, and/or Aquaman film sooner than later. Or maybe an update on the new Batman films with Affleck.

Yeah. Hopefully. All I know is that none of the announcements will be for a solo live action Wonder Woman film. There's no way Gal Gadot could carry her own film....at all. Probably the only mistake I can think of when it comes to this film.
