Earlier today in Michigan, some Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice set photos of Holly Hunter, Scoot McNairy, and Tao Okamoto hit the web.
Hunter was rumored at one time to possibly be playing Leslie Thompkins, a close friend of Thomas Wayne, and a a doctor who was one of the first people on the scene when the Wayne’s were killed. McNairy has been rumored to be everything from Nightwing to The Flash. Okamoto has been rumored to be playing Mercy Graves, Lex’s henchwoman/assistant/assassin.
It’s worth mentioning that when Holly Hunter and Tao Okamoto were originally announced along with Callan Mulvey, it was said to be as “newly-created characters for the film.”
What do you think maybe he is playing The Flash or maybe Metallo? I’m going to lean Metallo.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer. Zack Snyder is directing.
The cast includes Man of Steel’s Henry Cavill reprising his role as Superman in the film, Ben Affleck is Bruce Wayne/Batman, Gal Gadot is Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg is Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons is Alfred Pennyworth and Ray Fisher is Victor Stone/Cyborg. Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane will also reprise their roles in the sequel. Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto and Scoot McNairy have unknown roles. Jason Momoa is all but confirmed as Aquaman and rumored to appear.
It is scheduled to hit theaters in the US on March 25th, 2016. It’s not yet known if the April 29th date in UK still stands.
