‘Batman v Superman’ Also Stars ‘The Walking Dead’s Lauren Cohan
In case you didn’t spot her in the trailer (you may have been understandably distracted by fellow The Walking Dead star Jeffrey Dean Morgan standing next to her), we now have confirmation that the actress playing Martha Wayne in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is, in fact, Lauren Cohan. The actress’ name has popped up on IMDb, confirming her small but integral role in Zack Snyder’s upcoming film.
It wasn’t exactly easy to tell just who Snyder had in the roles of Thomas and Martha Wayne, Bruce’s dearly departed parents who died tragically when he was a kid — a piece of Batman’s origin story that no director can seem to resist re-telling with each and every new Batman iteration.
It was a bit easier to spot Morgan, who previously starred in Snyder’s Watchmen adaptation, but for those who thought, “Hey, that looks like Lauren Cohan from The Walking Dead,” rest assured that you were correct.
Cohan and Morgan co-star with Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne / Batman, Henry Cavill’s Clark Kent / Superman, Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor, and returning Man of Steel stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane. Gal Gadot is making her DCU debut as Wonder Woman, with cameos expected from Jason Momoa’s Aquaman and Ezra Miller’s The Flash.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice arrives on March 25.
