Zack Snyder’s Batman Vs Superman-flavoured Man Of Steel sequel has added three new cast members to its incredible line-up, including two stars of recent Marvel movies.

The Wolverine‘s Tao Okamoto, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and 300: Rise Of An Empire‘s Callan Mulvey and Oscar veteran Holly Hunter (The Incredibles, O Brother Where Art Thou?) are all confirmed for the ambitious sequel.

“She has immense talent and is always captivating on screen,” said Synder of Hunter. “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.

“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 rivalled by her amazing abilities as an actress. I’m really excited to have her joining us on this adventure.”
