It still doesn’t have a title, but it does have three new cast members. Warner Bros. Pictures just revealed the untitled Superman and Batman film has added Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey (300: Rise of an Empire), and Tao Okamoto (The Wolverine) to the cast list. According to the official announcement, all of these actors will play characters created just for the film.
 
“Holly has always been one of my favorite actresses; she has immense talent and is always captivating on screen,” said director Zack Snyder (300, Man of Steel). “I had an opportunity to meet her a while back and knew instantly that I had to work with her, so as we began writing the script I made sure to create a role specifically for her.”
 
Commenting on Mulvey and Okamoto’s casting, Snyder said, “I just had the good fortune to work with Callan on 300: Rise of an Empire and was very impressed with his incredible talent. He’s a fantastic actor and I’m looking forward to having the chance to work with him again. And, quite simply, Tao is a striking presence whose beauty is aptly rivaled by her amazing abilities as an actress. I’m really excited to have her joining us on this adventure.”
 
The untitled Superman and Batman film stars Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent, Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, and Jeremy Irons as Alfred. Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, and Diane Lane are on board to reprise their roles from Man of Steel.
 
Snyder’s directing the Man of Steel sequel from a script by Chris Terrio (from a screenplay by David S. Goyer). Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder are producing, and Goyer, Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Wesley Coller, and Geoff Johns are executive producing.
 
Warner Bros Pictures will release the superhero film in theaters on May 6, 2016.
