Game of Thrones actor Michael McElhatton has been cast in Justice League in an unnamed role. McElhatton revealed his casting at a red carpet event for the london premiere of his TV series Genius.
"I can't really tell you anything about that. Who knows, maybe they're doing reshoots?" McElhatton told Red Carpet News TV. "I can't really say, but it looks pretty amazing."
"It's hard to know, they shoot so much stuff," he continued, speaking about the tone of Justice League. "There's probably going to be a lot more humor in it, I think would be the main difference compared to [Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice]."
McElhatton did reveal some key details of the scene which he filmed, which he described as an opening scene for the film which is "dark, but in a good way," possibly meaning he's portraying an early villain of the film.
"The scene I did...Well at the moment I can say it's a big kind of opening scene. It was pretty dark actually, in it's tone. But in a good way...I quite like that. It wasn't comic book-y, but you can thread a certain amount of humor in it, which maybe [Batman v Superman] was lacking."
McElhatton also praised director Zack Snyder's love of the characters, and of comic books, saying the director has the history he lacks with the genre.
Justice League is in post production for a November 17 theatrical release.
