Ever since Warner Bros. dropped the major news that Jesse Eisenberg would star as Lex freaking Luthor in the upcoming Batman Vs. Superman (seriously, Warner Bros., please give us the official title so we can quit referring to the film like it’s a pro wrestling match), casting news for the sure-to-be mega-blockbuster has been relatively mum.  Until today.

Warner Bros. has announced that Holly Hunter (Raising Arizona, The Piano, Saving Grace), Callan Mulvey (300: Rise of an Empire), and Tao Okamoto (The Wolverine) will join the ranks of the film.  Further, Deadline notes that they will being playing “new characters,” but, despite that, let’s just speculate wildly that Holly Hunter will be portraying Hawkgirl because this is the internet and we can make news and facts out of anything that we want, OK?  So she’s Hawkgirl.  Holly Hunter is Hawkgirl.

What do you think of the Batman Vs. Superman news?
