    "Newly created characters" really throws me off. I don't buy it. Maybe it's characters not seen in film/live action before. If that's the case, Holly Hunter would be my Leslie Thompkins, and if not, maybe Lex Luthor's mother (Lillian Luthor)? Kind of like a Gertrude or a Lady Macbeth who sort of persuades Lex into committing evil acts from behind the scenes - or maybe his mother when Lex is younger in flashbacks?. (I'm sort of thinking of Moira from Arrow when I think of "Evil mom".)

    I don't know - I wouldn't waste a caliber-name like Holly Hunter on a role that ISN'T known from the comics. Seems like a waste. Even Richard Schiff got to be a comic book character, and he was in MOS for less than 5 minutes, AND he doesn't have an Oscar. Hunter is arguably in the same group of talent as Meryl Streep, Glenn Close, Jodie Foster, etc.

    The fact that they have to tell you they are new original characters in a g-damn press release pretty much means that at least somebody there is not. It's a very deliberate challenge to protect story spoilers as I've said the studio and movie makers will do in press releases.

    Yeah, they could've just as easily said that they were cast in the movie and that's it. That alone would've made us speculate, and say "Huh, I wonder who they're playing?" - And now we're probably speculating even more because we think their "new characters" statement is bogus. It's pretty obvious that this was a strategic press release.

    I mean, with TDKR, making a big announcement that Marion Cotillard is going to play "Miranda Tate" and Joseph Gordon-Levitt is going to play "John Blake" automatically sounds fishy. There are so many goddamn Batman characters throughout 70 years of history, it would be nonsensical and silly to just make up NEW main characters at random. They "sort of" did with Blake, but I understand the strategy there and it's smart.

    If you're going to introduce another Lane I'd rather it be General Sam Lane.

    WHY HASN'T MICHAEL FASSBENDER, BENEDICT CUMBERPATCH, IDRIS ELBA, AND EMMA WATSON BEEN CAST???????!!!!!!!!!!!!

    On a more serious note, wish they got that other girl from the Wolverine. Really liked her in the film. She could be a good Shiva but still cool with this one.

    I have no real beef with any of the actors picked because we have no idea what they're playing.

    This is pretty much the response I was expecting. "Only" took 4 pages. :whatever:

    Or was that sarcasm and my detector is off?

    You'll have beef when they announce that Holly Hunter is playing Commissioner Jane Gordon.

    Hunter is probably a politician or diplomat. Someone heading up the civilian govt (UN?) response to the arrival of aliens and super-powered beings.

    The 300 guy is obviously muscle of some type. Good or bad I have no idea. Probably a bad guy.

    The girl from Wolverine could be a Luthor bodyguard. I've no doubt she will probably be the opponent for WW.

    Mulvey was pretty intimidating in Cap 2 as Frank Grillo's right hand man.

    He'll always be Drazic off Heart Break High to me though.

    Well Tao is :hubba and I don't know what guy wouldn't have stayed in Japan with her at the end of Wolverine ...so I'm fine with her casting. Other than that I kinda shrug at the new additions and "new characters". Mulveys been rumored for the Gillian role for months and Tao could be the love interest we heard rumored back when Affleck was cast. But who knows.

    That was my first thought :) Callen as Mr Luthor and Holly as Mrs Luthor ;) and they both die in the battle between Superman and Zod. Lex becomes the new CEO of Lex Corp. Lex blames Superman for his parents death :D

    I don't want to see Luthor's father unless he's a drunk lowlife living in Suicide Slum.

    I don't want to see Lex's parents. I hope they've both passed on or something.
