Callan Mulvey Eyed For BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN Villain

The Australian actor who'll appear in both 300: Rise of an Empire and Captain America: The Winter Soldier next year is reportedly on Warner Bros. radar to play the villain in the Man of Steel sequel.

Hot on the heels of Warner Bros. announcing who'll play the Amazon Princess in Justice League Batman Vs. Superman, word is out on who they're considering for the villain role in the Zack Snyder-directed Man of Steel sequel. We still don't know which DC character will provoke the assemblage of Batman, Superman, Nightwing and Wonder Woman (along with supposed cameo appearances by “several other members of the Justice League”), but Variety is reporting that the studio is considering Callan Mulvey, 38, for the part. The Australian actor, who appeared in Zero Dark Thirty last year, will be seen in next year's 300: Rise of an Empire and he also has a villain role (Jack Rollins) in Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier. As the source suggests Warner Bros. is just “eyeing” Callan Mulvey, there could be other actors in contention. Anyhow, previous rumors suggest that Lex Luther and Doomsday will appear in Batman Vs. Superman, but what do you think?

Starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, and Laurence Fishburne, the tentatively titled Batman Vs. Superman flick is scheduled for release on July 17, 2015!
