It has been rumored and was suggested in the trailer, but now it’s confirmed – Tao Okamoto will be playing Mercy Graves in Zack Snyder’s upcoming “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”.
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.
