Though it has been rumored for quite sometime, today we get official confirmation from DC All Access that actress Tao Okamoto is playing Mercy Graves in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The character was originally created for Superman: The Animated series back in 1996. And this is the first time she has been seen on the big screen. Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad has similar origins. Instead of springing forth from a comic book, she was created for the Batman animated series back in 1992.
Tao Okamoto was personally selected by director Zack Snyder for the role after her appearance in The Wolverine. The character can be seen in the second Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer as she leads the dead body of super villain Zod through Lex Corp Industries, a hold over from Man of Steel. Early in the production process, Warner Bros. claimed that »
Eagle-eyed viewers might have spotted Tao Okamoto looking sharp as she escorted the body of Zod.
Now the official DC All Access channel has revealed that she will be playing Mercy Graves in the film.
Graves is typically portrayed as Lex Luthor's assistant or bodyguard.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens on March 25, 2016. Watch the Comic-Con trailer in »
When Tao Okamoto (The Wolverine) was announced to be joining the cast of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, even though she was said to be playing a character created specially for the movie, many fans (myself included) speculated that she would be playing Mercy Graves, Lex Luthor’s ass kicking chauffeur/bodyguard who first saw the light of day on Superman: The Animated Series. Now, with a break down of that awesome trailer, DC All Access have confirmed (at 2:23) that this is indeed the case, making her the second DC Comics character created specifically for Warner Bros. animated shows to make the jump to the big screen, alongside Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad. Mercy Graves is a pretty bad ass character, but really her inclusion doesn’t add up to much else than her whaling on people. So, are we going see Okamoto going toe »

And so another part of the Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice casting jigsaw is in place.
Here's the proof...
What wasn't clear is just where she fitted into the ensemble for the film. However, thanks to DC All Access, now we know.
We're guessing her role in the film isn't too big, but we'll find out for sure in March 2016, when Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice arrives in cinemas. »
A character originally created for "Superman: The Animated Series," Mercy serves as Lex Luthor's lethal bodyguard and personal assistant. Lisa Edelstein voiced the character in the animated series, whilst Cassidy Freeman's "Smallville" character Tess Mercer was heavily influenced by the role.
Warner Bros. Pictures originally claimed that "Hannibal" and "The Wolverine" star Okamoto would be playing a character created specifically for the film, but this week’s episode of DC All Access confirms Okamoto's true role.
"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" is currently slated to hit cinemas on March 25th. »

Villordsutch: Your name is attached in the top corner of all the Star Trek ongoing series comics Mike, and you’ve written up a lot of stories. Did you arrive at the Idw doors saying, “I have a plan for the next 5 years!” or are you part of an Idw’s current Star Trek plan for the next 5 years?
Mike Johnson: I wish I was clever enough to have five years planned out! My arrival was fortuitous, because at the time I was working for Alex Kurtzman & Bob Orci, who were in the process of writing and producing the 2009 Star Trek movie. With their encouragement I had already been writing for DC Comics, and when the »
Bruce Timm has achieved legendary status in certain circles for his contributions to Warner Bros. Animation — including the “Justice League” TV series — and returns to that niche in a dazzling way with “Justice League: Gods and Monsters,” an original alternate-universe rewrite of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman’s origins. Conceived by Timm and writer Alan Burnett, this direct-to-Blu-Ray release plays like a mind-bending fever dream, owing a spiritual debt to Frank Miller’s “The Dark Knight Returns” but standing very much on its own. Clearly calibrated to wow comics aficionados, anyone who can distinguish Batman from Man-Bat will want this baby on their shelves.
In this bizarre (no, not Bizarro) world, Superman (Benjamin Bratt), Batman (Michael C. Hall) and Wonder Woman (Tamara Taylor) operate out of the Tower of Justice, working on behalf of a government that capitalizes on their talents but fears it cannot control them. When the President »

Arrow Video know their cult movies, you just have to look at the ones they’ve released to see that. If you were to ask the question, how crazy can a cult movie be? I think you just have to look at their latest release for that. The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension is probably one of the strangest (yet still good) Eighties movies you’ll ever see.
When Buckaroo Banzai (Peter Weller), the brilliant physicist-neurosurgeon-martial arts master-secret-rock star manages to use the Oscillation Overthruster to travel to the 8th dimension he draws the attention of the Red Lectroids (an alien race obviously.) Working with Banzai’s »

As part of our 2015 San Diego Comic-Con International coverage, david j. moore chats with Justice League: Gods and Monsters director Sam Liu, writer Alan Burnett and voice actors Paget Brewster and Tamara Taylor…
The DC Universe original movie Justice League: Gods and Monsters (out on DVD and Blu Ray July 28th From Warner Bros.) flip-flops DC’s stable characters by throwing them all in an alternate universe where they are not their famous, Justice-seeking selves. Instead, the characters are given vastly different identities (Batman, for example, is a vampire), and they become involved in a conspiracy that casts them in a dark, sinister light. At 2015’s San Diego Comic Con, several key members of the cast and crew were on hand to discuss their involvement with the film. Amongst those interviewed for this article are director Sam Liu (Superman/Batman: Public Enemies), writer/producer Alan Burnett (Batman: Mask of the Phantasm »

Cosplay costume: Jacket from ‘Hotline Miami‘
The 7th annual Montreal Comiccon, was held at the Palais des Congrès this past weekend and for the first time in seven years, I was able to attend the event. Past Cons were held in early September, conflicting with my coverage of the Toronto International Film Festival, but this year, the organizers decided to change the date allowing me to geek out to a variety of attractions catering to fans of comics, sci-fi, horror, anime, games, television and film. I’m pleased to announce that I was pleasantly surprised with the event as a whole. Montreal’s geek extravaganza is extremely laid back. There was little time spent waiting in line and everyone seems to be having a good time. I counted over two dozen booths filled with comic book artists ready to draw up an original piece on the spot, sign an autograph »
