Well it's Sunday speculation time and we've heard a lot of things about Batman v Superman. Although three actors were cast for parts that were "...created solely for the movie" we've heard lately that Holly Hunter will be playing a senator who I'm guessing is going to be involved with Luthor in some kind of political Oedipus Lex subplot, that might be different. Then there is Tao Okoamoto who is heavily rumored to be playing Mercy Graves That character's been around. So maybe Zack Snyder just wanted to misdirect people or maybe it's his own original take on existing characters. He's definitely giving Aquaman a fiercer, sexier image by casting Jason Momoa.
I'm wondering who is Callan Mulvey cast to play though? As usual the internet speculation is running fast and loose!
With so many heroes already confirmed for the movie and other cameos rumored I can't believe that Lex Luthor and Mercy Graves would be the only villains cast so far. I have to think it's a safe bet that Callan Mulvey has got to be one of those villains that will try to help Lex bring "The Alien" down. So here's some other characters that I think should be in the race for Callan Mulvey.
The Long shots
Lobo- A character I would much rather see played by The Rock, in fact he had signed on to play him at one time but that movie fell through. Although the guys name was Ludlow a lot of people thought they heard that waitress call that guy Lobo in MoS. Besides the character was inspired by Wolverine and his lady friend is already here so I just thought that would be funny to see this.
Maxwell Lord- rumored to be in Justice League. We've already seen a Wayne industry satellite in MoS and at one time Lord had control of Batman's Brother Eye satellite so maybe they could be using that as a plot device that finds the other members of the Justice League. He had a talent for mind control too which he could use on Superman to fight Batman until Wonder Woman snaps his neck so then she and Supes could have something to commiserate over.
Ares- The Greek god of war who might just have something that Diana Prince is rumored to be looking for besides Snyder might have thought that a good fit after working with him on 300: Rise of an Empire who knows, I'm just guessing remember.
Kenny Braverman aka Conduit- He was young Clark's bully in MoS can fire kryptonite and has an intense rivalry/hatred with Superman.
Brainiac- I don't know why I don't have a 12th level intellect but these are long-shots, and I like Brainiac. Someone has suggested they thought they saw Brainiacs logo on the world engine so, it could happen!
The Favorites on the internet
The Joker- A lot of people are betting on this one mostly because the cinematographer posted a picture of a playing card stuck in a block of styrofoam on twitter, maybe he's just into card tricks, but then TMZ ran with it and asked Callan about it now the guy from TMZ is willing to bet his visa that he's playing the Joker.
I will say he has the look for it and I think he could pull it off especially with the scarred face and that could be why they're keeping such a tight lid on it. I just can't believe they would put another major villain like the Joker in with Lex Luthor especially when people are still reeling over Heath Ledger's amazing turn at it. I mean their casting choices have already infuriated half the internet.
Metallo or Metal-O- I like this choice better myself. Why wouldn't Lex want a Kryptonite powered metal warrior to help him take down Superman? Tony Gallo will probably lead Luthor to some Kryptonite and we already know Cyborg is in this so the cybernetic technology is there and It has been supposedly leaked that this character was going to be in the movie.
The Dark Horse
Dev-Em- Remember the MoS prequel comic? That figure walking away from the crashed ship? I think that was Dev-Em, it seemed a little bulky to be Supergirl. I know everyone says the open pod means Kara Zor-el but remember also that none of those skeletons were in those pods in the prequel Kara had to have stuck around and placed them in there before she left the ship and turned on the beacon. The natives must have seen her though because they had her symbol painted on their tent wall. What better way though to help turn the people against Superman than have some psychotic guy with all of his same powers flying around messing stuff up and blaming Kal-el. Plus the character was sort of re- created just for the MoS.
So what character are you betting Mulvey is going to play?
