Zack Snyder's Man of Steel Sequel Casts Holly Hunter, Tao Okamoto and Callan Mulvey | Fanboys Anonymous
In breaking news, Zack Snyder's Batman vs. Superman follow-up to last year's Man of Steel has scooped up not one, not two, but three new actors to join its ensemble!

When casting rumors were whipping about the Internet last year like a hurricane (Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Bryan Cranston, Joaquin Phoenix, Denzel Washington, etc.), nobody knew quite what to expect or believe. It's frustrating being a fan, having to hear a rumor one day only to have it quashed and replaced by another the next. Especially when you're a fan writing the news. So it gives me great pleasure to be able to dish out some casting news that I feel is a lot more reliable.

The Wolverine's Mariko actress Tao Okamoto snatched up by Zack Snyder for Batman versus Superman film

Fresh off the press, we've learned that Snyder has bagged the pretty young thing Tao Okamoto, aka Mariko from last year's The Wolverine. Yeah, that's one Marvel character in the bag, right?

We've also learned that Callan Mulvey has signed up. Mulvey, who will be recognizable to some through his role in 300: Rise of an Empire, also appears in Captain America: The Winter Soldier as Jack Rollins. Oh hey, there's another Marvel character in the bag. That's where the poaching stops, for now at least!

The Incredibles Elastigirl actress Holly Hunter joins the cast of Man of Steel sequel Batman versus Superman

Last but not least is veteran actress Holly Hunter, whom I suspect may end up playing someone else's mum. I may be wrong, but my blasted intuition does like to run wild. At least this lady has some experience as an actual superhero, though. She voiced Elastigirl for The Incredibles. Can I get a LOL? No? That's okay, I suppose.

Fanboys Anonymous does not know yet who these new additions are contracted to play, but these really are some intriguing choices. Tao Okamoto is only known for The Wolverine so far and only has one other television credit under her belt. Callan Mulvey's history is mainly in television and only recently has he been getting bigger parts in film. Is this straight-out poaching a case of Warner Bros and DC playing the familiarity game in competition with their rival? I guess only time will tell.

Sound off, Fanboys! What do you make of Bats vs. Supes' new cast additions? Comments below and thanks for reading.
