RUMOR: Holly Hunter's BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN Character Revealed?
The Latino Review boys think they've sussed out who the Oscar winning actress will play in Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel sequel, and contrary to initial reports, she IS an established DC Comics character..an ally of the Caped Crusader to be specific!
We recently found out that Zack Snyder's Batman VS. Superman themed sequel to Man Of Steel had gained a trio of talented new cast members: 300: Rise of an Empire's Callan Mulvey, The Wolverine's Tao Okamoto and Academy Award winning actress Holly Hunter (Always, Raising Arizona, Copycat, Thirteen..among many others). Although it was pointed out in the official press release that "all three actors will play characters newly created for the film," many feel this won't be the case, and have begun to speculate on which established DC characters they might be playing. The Latino Review lads always have their ears to the round when it comes to this type of stuff, and according to them..
"We think Holly Hunter is going to be playing Leslie Thompkins, or a Leslie Thompkins replacement character."
Batman fans will surely know who this is: In DC lore, Thomkins is a doctor who went to medical school with Bruce Wayne's dad before he was murdered, and in certain incarnations of the origin story, actually knows Bruce's secret identity and provided a shoulder for him to cry on immediately following the shootings. If this is true, it sounds like Ben Affleck's Batman will have yet another ally in this movie. LR say they haven't been able to 100% confirm this, so treat it as a rumor until we know more.
