“Batman v Superman” spoilers include two new members of the cast. Joining the “Batman v Superman” cast is actor Scoot McNairy, who has recently been seen in “12 Years a Slave” and “Argo” with Ben Affleck. According to a report from Yahoo! on Friday (June 27) his character hasn’t been revealed yet. Producers have kept tight wraps on this film, so that information might not come out for a while.
It was recently reported by Entertainment Weekly that Jason Momoa is also joining the team. This has now been confirmed and he will be taking on the role of Aquaman. It’s certainly a way to get another character ready for the upcoming “Justice League” film and possibly a way to create an additional subplot for this film. Momoa is now best known for playing the barbarian Khal Drogo on “Game of Thrones” and for a turn as “Conan the Barbarian” in the latest incarnation of that series.
The “Batman v Superman” cast already includes Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. The recognizable faces of Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Holly Hunter, Jeremy Irons (Alfred), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White), and Diane Lane (Martha Kent) are also along for the ride. Then there is Gal Gadot, who will play Wonder Woman and give that character new life for this generation of film fans. It has been rumored that the character of Cyborg will appear as well, but that has not yet been confirmed.
“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” doesn’t come out until May 6, 2016, but it has more buzz than many of the films that will be released before it. This is the response to many of the Marvel movies and the success that “The Avengers” has had. If the film can find a lot of success in theaters, it is going to create even more interest in the secondary characters that will have bigger roles in the eventual “Justice League” film due out in 2017.
Fans should expect more “Batman v Superman” spoilers to come out when the release date gets closer, but for now, only theories are out there about where the film will take its characters.
