Lauren Cohan Boards Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Lauren Cohan is the latest addition to the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice cast

With just over two months to go before the big-screen release of Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, IMDb brings word that The Walking Dead star Lauren Cohan has joined the cast of the superhero showdown. Although unconfirmed by the studio, the site currently lists Cohan as playing Martha Wayne, mother to Bruce Wayne. Appropriately enough, it’s Lauren Cohan’s Walking Dead co-star Jeffrey Dean Morgan who is said to be playing Thomas Wayne. The Waynes are expected to appear in a flashback sequence.

There’s also a new Batman v Superman video that has debuted online today via the film’s official site. Check it out in the player below! 

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Superman, Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning from Man of Steel, joined by Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and Holly Hunter in a role newly created for the film. Jason Momoa will also be making an appearance as Aquaman with, apparently, even more surprises to come!

Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to open worldwide on March 25, 2016.
