‘Walking Dead’ star Lauren Cohan cast as Martha Wayne in ‘Dawn of Justice’

Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is still dropping casting announcements as the film nears. In fact, fans will be excited to hear that The Walking Dead star Lauren Cohan will be joining the film in a cameo role as Martha Wayne, wife of Thomas Wayne and mother of Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne.

Few details are available regarding just how extensive the role will be or if Martha will have any impact on the story.

EW reported that they confirmed Cohan’s casting as Martha Wayne in Batman v Superman, but that’s about as far as the news went with another soon-to-be cast member of The Walking Dead Jeffrey Dean Morgan playing Thomas Wayne.

The appearance of the Waynes shouldn’t come as a surprise considering that this is a Batman movie, their pivotal role in the making of the Batman is one that might play out a little differently this time around.

It is likely to see Dean Morgan and Cohan on screen in a short, yet informative flashback sequence that establishes the painful event that caused Young Master Wayne to become the Batman.

With all of that said, fans are reacting strongly to Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman and seeing Jason Momoa introduced as Aquaman. Remember Jena Malone and Scoot McNairy’s role are still under wraps (rumored to be Barbara Gordon and Jimmy Olsen) so there’s still plenty to learn.

Dawn of Justice also stars Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Holly Hunter as Senator Finch, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, and Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice arrives March 25th.
