Callan Mulvey Addresses His Casting In Zack Snyder's Batman Vs Superman

Callan Mulvey Addresses His Casting In Zack Snyder's Batman Vs Superman

The 300: Rise Of An Empire and Captain America: The Winter Soldier star opens up about his (as yet undisclosed) role in Batman Vs Superman and the forward march of his burgeoning Hollywood career.

Anyone who has seen 300: Rise Of An Empire would agree that Zack Snyder picked the right guy to carry over from that film to his Batman/Superman film. With Eva Green's performance pretty much blasting the entire male cast off the screen, Callan Mulvey was the only male actor who managed to make a favourable impression.

He's moving on to bigger things now by re-uniting with his 300 producer Zack Snyder for what is to be the biggest film of his career. Mulvey is breaking out at the ripe old age of 39, but is doing it in style starring in two (very well executed) global blockbuster CBM smashes within a month of each other - March's 300: Rise Of An Empire and April's Captian America: The Winter Soldier.

He spoke to the Sydney Confidential about his casting.

On being cast in Batman Vs Superman
Zack is such a visionary, so I know it’s going to be an amazing project. Talent as a director aside, people really love working for Zack and being on his sets, which says it all really.

On re-building his career in Hollywood, after a devasting accident destroyed half of his face in 2003
I have found Hollywood to be filled with many talented, down to earth and creative people. It has been a lot of hard work and dedication. It’s tough in the sense that you have to start over again, do your time, play small roles and prove yourself. I have good friends over here who are doing the same thing, so we almost ride out each others highs and lows together. There is a real camaraderie among the actors I know. I’m very grateful to actors like Nic Bishop, Damian Walshe-Howling and the Hemsworth brothers who made the move before me and had such great advice and support.
