Wait, is The Comedian Batman’s dad? Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Thomas Wayne in Batman V Superman?

August 11th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Although Zack Snyder has said that Batman’s origins won’t be a big part of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice  because it’s so well known at this time, we figure that it will at least be referred to… afterall, that tragic night in Crime Alley is why Batman exists.

And now we may have a glimpse of what is to come… is that Jeffrey Dean Morgan in that portrait? And, if it is, is he Thomas Wayne? Check out the pic below and let us know what you think… (continues after pic)

Now the picture itself doesn’t prove anything… will Morgan be in the movie as Wayne? Perhaps. Is this even Wayne? perhaps. Will the paining just be a nod to the fact that, having played The Comedian in Watchmen, the actor and Zack Snyder are friends and Snyder liked the idea of him in the movie… as a portrait? Perhaps…

But we have to say, it’s pretty likely this is Thomas Wayne, the man who would die in on the street with his wife, Martha, in front of their son who would on that very night swear to avenge them.

Let us know your thoughts but, for the record, I think he looks just how I’ve always imagined Thomas.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
