Hot on the heels of Warner Bros. announcing who'll play the Amazon Princess in Justice League Batman Vs. Superman, word is out on who they're considering for the villain role in the Zack Snyder-directed Man of Steel sequel. We still don't know which DC character will provoke the assemblage of Batman, Superman, Nightwing and Wonder Woman (along with supposed cameo appearances by “several other members of the Justice League”), but Variety is reporting that the studio is considering Callan Mulvey, 38, for the part. The Australian actor, who appeared in Zero Dark Thirty last year, will be seen in next year's 300: Rise of an Empire and he also has a villain role (Jack Rollins) in Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier. As the source suggests Warner Bros. is just “eyeing” Callan Mulvey, there could be other actors in contention. Anyhow, previous rumors suggest that Lex Luther and Doomsday will appear in Batman Vs. Superman, but what do you think?

Starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, and Laurence Fishburne, the tentatively titled Batman Vs. Superman flick is scheduled for release on July 17, 2015!

LOL @DCMarvelFreshman.. this movie looks more like Justice League than Batman vs Superman to me. I hope atleast WB knows what movie they are making.
Nomis - 12/4/2013, 10:10 AM
@ PrinceOfCrime - I'm think Lex also.
ChrisEl - 12/4/2013, 10:14 AM
Seriously, this is not a MOS sequel anymore. It's Justice League: Trinity (Not that I'm complaining).

Give us MOS 2 in 2016.

Potentially Lex? Definitely not a choice anyone would've guessed but who knows!

This is really starting to become a Justice League film...maybe that's what it is, opposite of Marvels plan, they'll introduce WW and new Batman, bring over Flash from Arrow, introduce a new Hal Jordan and then spin out more films, with a proper Man of Steel 2 to follow? They did say that if Man of Steel worked then Snyder would be asked to direct a Justice League film

CALLAN MULVEY is the guy in the Winter Soldier trailer that said"Did he just jump without a parachute?"

I think he going to be playing Lex! he looks badass bald headed!

A Young badass lex!
DudeGuyMan - 12/4/2013, 10:23 AM
He's Lex.

ChrisEl - 12/4/2013, 10:26 AM
Charlie, do you think this was DC's plan all along?

DC IS MURDERING EVERYTHING THIS WEEK!

@ChrisEl

I think so yeah..imagine the whole "Batman vs Superman" think is mostly because that would get a lot of hype going both amongst fans and the general public, probably more so than even "Justice League" would've. Think they've just been making a Justice League film under our nose...but we'll see! Either that, or it really is Batman vs Superman with an awful lot of cameos :P

Think Man of Steel 2 is still coming
ALegendaryPanda - 12/4/2013, 10:41 AM
He's definitely being looked at for Lex!

What Man of Steel Sequel? I think you meant "Justice League Light" right?
Nomis - 12/4/2013, 10:42 AM
If he's Lex than that's a GREAT casting choice!
Omarvls - 12/4/2013, 10:42 AM

ForeverPowerful - 12/4/2013, 10:43 AM
I dont see him as Lex, Metallo maybe.

If they are pushing for Lex as the main threat.
JoeMomma29 - 12/4/2013, 10:43 AM

soberchimera - 12/4/2013, 10:49 AM
There should be one Superman villain and one Batman villain in this. I'm thinking Metallo and Clayface.
Indy - 12/4/2013, 10:49 AM

Breaking!

Steve Buscemi cast as Arm-Fall-Off-Boy!

Snyder has reported in saying: "Arm-Fall-Off-Boy is integral to the story and will focus on the powerful connection he and Wonder Woman will share. This is a powerful, awesome character and one I am excited to bring to the big screen."
kirdejM - 12/4/2013, 10:53 AM
Should it still be even called 'Batman vs Superman'
charlie2094 - 12/4/2013, 10:53 AM
@Omarvls

Think they need to move Ant-Man regardless...moving it out of November was a wise choice, but now it's right in the middle of a packed summer...think they'll move it again. Sure it'll still do fine, but, everyone I know scoff at just "Ant-Man" so it will need as strong a position as possible
Super12 - 12/4/2013, 10:53 AM
Omg my brain can't take this much awesomeness!!!!!
MoonDoggyX - 12/4/2013, 10:54 AM
I think that it still will be a Superman/Batman themedt movie, but WB, Snyder and co. will be including a lot of cameo and appearances to set up the shared DC universe. If they really just jump into a JL movie, they will have to introduce and character develop New Batman, Lex, Doomsday, Wonder Woman and Flash in the same flick. That's too much...
