Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey and Tao Okamoto join the cast of Batman Vs Superman...

Zack Snyder's upcoming sequel to Man Of Steel, that we currently know as Batman Vs Superman, is set to start main photography in the next few weeks. And as such, Warner Bros has now confirmed some new additions to the cast.

The highest profile is Holly Hunter, who will join the existing cast that already includes Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg and Jeremy Irons.

The other new additions? They'd be Callan Mulvey (last seen in 300: Rise Of An Empire) and The Wolverine's Tao Okamoto. No details of their respective roles have been revealed, outside of the fact that they are all newly created for the film. Here are pictures of them all though...

Warner Bros' statement includes the following comments from Snyder on the new casting:

"Holly has always been one of my favorite actresses; she has immense talent and is always captivating on screen. 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".

He added that “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".

Batman Vs Superman - or whatever it ends up being called, will be released in May 2016.
