Is Holly Hunter Just What The Doctor Ordered For BATMAN VS SUPERMAN?


SupermanBatmanbannerLast week information dropped that three new cast members had been added to Batman Vs Superman. The production that will see Zack Snyder team his Superman  from Man Of Steel up with a completely new version of Batman played by Ben Affleck added three new cast members in Callan Mulvey, Holly Hunter and Tao Okamoto. No details were given about the roles other than they were described as three characters that were not from the comics and created for the movie.

They have taken to some speculation that CBR about the possibility of her being from Themyscira or even that she works for Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor, and done some digging of their own. They haven’t been able to confirm this 100%, but they have heard that Hunter will be playing Dr Leslie Thompkins, or a version of the character in the film.

Thimpkins, in Batman lore, is responsible for mending Batman when his injuries prove to be too much for Alfred to handle on his own. She went to medical school with Bruce’s father, Thomas, and in some iterations of the origin was there to comfort him the night of the murder. In Batman: The Animated Series she knows the Batman is Bruce Wayne as well.

I implore you to head over and read Latino-Reviews write up of the information. You can read it an decide for your self whether or not you want to choose to believe it. Batman Vs Superman is currently gearing up for the shoot and still holding firm in their May 6, 2016 release date. For more information regarding the movie, check back here at Comic Book Therapy.
