Holly Hunter Jackie

Zack Snyder's "Batman Vs. Superman" is certainly shaping with an intriguing cast, that had you told us this last year, we probably wouldn't have believed you. Of course, Henry Cavill is back in the cape and Ben Affleck will wear the cowl, and they'll be surrounded by a roster that includes Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane and Gal Gadot. And now three more are coming aboard.

The usually excellent Holly Hunter, rising star Callan Mulvey ("300: Rise Of An Empire," "Captain America: The Winter Soldier") and Tao Okamoto (Mariko in "The Wolverine") have all joined the sequel, and no, their characters have not been revealed. So we'll let the internet speculate away on that.

But if you have your own theories, let us know in the comments section. "Batman Vs. Superman" arrives on May 6, 2016. [Variety]

    People talk about Michael Bay movies being explosions and to much action, that is exactly what marvel movies are. That's all they are some dialog then fight some dialog then explosions I'm not sure why people think they are so great.

    The cast is very intriguing to me. I wasn't big on Supes but after MoS I got more into the character. So if DC pull off BvS then Marvel has no chance. A holy trinity movie by DC if done right will always beat the Avengers. (I am a fan of both) But come on if DC gets it on point in this one again the their stock is through the roof. Because unlike Marvel DC owns all of their major characters.

    Callan Mulvey - That's an Aquaman (with scars) in Hardcore. Yeah, that's cool ...!!
    Best cast ever, besides Superman!!!

    Aquaman could be cool, but I don't know if they'll add more superheroes into the mix. Maybe Callan Mulvey plays Steve Trevor? Holly Hunter could be Etta Candy? Have to wait and see.

    Speaking as a once fan of DC Comics I have to admit, they suck for what they did to their super heroes. This Nu52 stuff is terrible! Man of Steel was awful and I rarely felt as if I was watching a Superman movie. The actor did a good job but the direction Hollywood portrayed him was very bad. I can only imagine the sequel being worse as DC Comics will destroy more of their charactors on film. The casting isn't where it needs to be and this dark direction with the bad costumes doesn't help much. Think I will wait to catch this one in a DVD dump bin somewhere and stick with Marvel. They get it right and respect the fans as much as possible where DC Comics seems to have alienated all of us who stood by them through the years. Peace out. I'll be in line for Captain America.

    speaking as a once fan of DC comics says the guy with name MarvelRules.
    Yeah just go suck on their d**ks. their movies are shit anyway. all they do is add couple of jokes here and there to go along with shit loads of explosions. and everyone goes ohhhh what a great movie. lol
    and everyone follows masses. so if 20 people say it's great everyone is gonna get on that boat. and if 20 people says it's bad then everyone says the same sh*t.
    they haven't even made this movie yet and people are like this movie sucks. they destroyed superman series. at least let them make a movie first.

    But I bet you'll still go see the movie when it comes out............ Dumbass

    They keep adding all these names to try and save a film that Zack Snyder & DC Comics have already ruined! Marvel will win in 2016!!! They make better comic book movies and stay true to the charactors and respect their fan base. DC Comics on the other hand tosses their fans to the side and crap all over their iconic heroes with Nu52.

    Bet your dumbass will still go see it when it comes out............ Dumbass

    You want to talk about taking a crap on characters, you should give any MARVEL NOW comic a go sometime. And in their defense, this cast alone is much more exciting than any post-credit tease MARVEL has made.

    i do enjoy the marvel films, but your joking right? they make better movies? ha ha he he ha ah ah he ha, and i thought my jokes were bad

  • marco | April 3, 2014 7:34 PMReply

    Great trio of female actresses... Diane Lane, Amy Adams and now Holly Hunter... like it.

  • F**k Marvel | April 4, 2014 3:59 AM

    But your dumbass is still going to pay money to see it when it comes out............ Dumbass

  • MarvelRules! | April 4, 2014 1:38 AM

    They are all good. I only wish the film itself appeared like it could be. Too bad DC Comics misses the boat on all of the comic movies if it isn't Batman.
