We’ve kind of known this for a while, but it’s just been confirmed by DC that beautiful hannibal actress Tao Okamoto IS Lex’s bodyguard (and so much more) Mercy Graves in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Mercy was first introduced in the Superman: Animated series in the 1990s and has, much like Harley Quinn, since become a mainstay of the comics. (continues after picture)
Once again, like so many things in BvS and Suicide Squad, we are really excited to see these characters that we know and love, brought to life on the big screen… and we think, for Mercy, this is a superb bit of casting.
Are we right?
Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Superman, and Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. The film also stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning from Man of Steel, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and Holly Hunter in a role newly created for the film. Jason Momoa will also be making an appearance as Aquaman.
Directed by Zack Snyder, written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer, the film is produced by Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Wesley Coller, David S. Goyer and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.
