I called it. The Rumor Mill is spinning at high speeds this week. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice news just keeps spilling out on the internet; well comic book websites at least. This latest news comes from According to their website, a certain famed character will make an appearance in Zack Snyder's new film, and they might know who is cast for the role.

With her most recent role in memory, The Wolverine (2013), Tao Okamoto is rumored to be landing the role of Lex Luthor's assistant/bodyguard.

In the comic books and Superman animated series, Mercy Graves is Lex’s personal assistant and body guard, where she is portrayed as highly intelligent and experienced in hand-to-hand combat

As for Lex Luthor news, their source is reporting that he is a cocky, arrogant, S-O-B that we will all learn to hate. He is described as being:

“a slimy businessman we can all despise.” Our source indicated, “You are going to hate this guy. You are going to root for him to be punched by Supes when he weasels his way out of legal trouble. He is cocky and confident because he is THAT good at what he does. He's a billionaire who knows he is more powerful than the Senator and Congressman visiting because he's a billionaire.”

LexCorp is said to be a combination of an Apple/Google like corporation and is guarded by a wide range of security personal. From mall cops to SWAT teams, LexCorp in the public eye will be "consumer friendly" but deep underneath could be a dwelling to house Lex's deviousness.

What are your thoughts on the casting rumor? Also What is up with Lex Luthor's wig? He will have long straight blonde hair? I would have preferred him to have a curly mop style, but I guess I am no costume designer.
