The Walking Dead star has joined the cast of the long-awaited superhero throw-down. This bit of news — though not officially confirmed by the folks over at Warner Bros. Pictures — IMDB has Cohan listed in ‘Cast & Crew’ as playing Martha Wayne, late mother of Bruce Wayne. If this cast addition proves true, Cohan is — no doubt — fated to fall next to Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen, Supernatural), who is playing Bruce’s late father, Thomas Wayne, in the obligatory flashback scene of that fateful night for the Wayne family in ‘Crime Alley’.
Funny enough, Dean Morgan is also slated to appear again with Cohan in the coming season of The Walking Dead as the character Negan.
Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavil as Clark Kent/Superman and Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Also starring, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, and returning from Man of Steel as Lois Lane, Perry White and Martha Kent will be Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane respectively. Jeremy Irons also joins the cast as Alfred Pennyworth, fan-favorite butler and confidant to Bruce Wayne and Holly Hunter in an original role created especially for the film. Jason Momoa will also be appearing as Aquaman.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is slated for worldwide release on March 25, 2016.
