The ever-crowded cast of Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel 2 (or Superman Vs. Batman or whatever it ends up being called) just added three fairly high profile names to the list. Well, at least one of them is high profile; According to Deadline, Holly Hunter, 300: Rise Of An Empire‘s Callan Mulvey, and The Wolverine‘s Tao Okamoto have all signed on for roles that are said to be entirely new ones not derived from the comic books.
The addition of Holly Hunter to any cast is a thing to be excited about. She’s usually amazing in anything she’s in, so I’m gonna go ahead and put this in the “yay” column. I’d say the jury is still out on the other two. And regardless of what the report says, I’m not entirely buying that all three are brand new characters either; I have a gut feeling this could be a smokescreen. All three actors join an already fairly crowded cast that includes Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, and Jesse Eisenberg. The as-yet untitled DC Universe team-up movie is scheduled for May, 2016.
