Add three to the cast list of Man of Steel 2, and two of them are comic book movie veterans.
Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, and Tao Okamoto all join the cast of the still untitled sequel, and all as new characters. Mulvey was in the recent 300: Rise of an Empire, and Okamoto was in The Wolverine. They join the May 6, 2016 release alongside Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, and more.
My Name is Leonardo, and this is Jack-A… er, TMNT
Does this mean Leonardo is going to get hit in the junk or try to drive a golf cart drunk? Yes, Johnny Knoxville is voicing Leonardo in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Deadline reported today. He replaces actor Pete Ploszek, who voiced the character during production. Interestingly, Leonardo was not heard in the first trailer.
Also missing from the first trailer was Splinter, the mutant rat who serves as a mentor and father figure to the ninja turtles. Tony Shalhoub is voicing the character - but like Knoxville, hopefully that doesn’t mean Splinter will suddenly have some major neuroses.
