The Oscar-winning actress from 1993’s “The Piano” will play a character created for the film, according to Warner Bros.
Along with Hunter, two other actors who will play new characters were announced: Callan Mulvey of “300: Rise of an Empire” and Tao Okamoto of “The Wolverine.”
The Superman-Batman project, which will shoot at the Michigan Motion Picture Studios in Pontiac and other locations in the region and state, is being directed by Zack Snyder of “Man of Steel.”
In a Warner Bros. statement, Snyder said Hunter is one of his favorite actresses. “I had an opportunity to meet her a while back and knew instantly that I had to work with her, so as we began writing the script, I made sure to create a role specifically for her,” he said.
