A while back we learned that the production of Batman vs. Superman was searching for a secret female lead to cast alongside Henry Cavill’s Superman and Ben Affleck’s Batman. There was initial rumors — and there still will be — that this “secret” role is actually going to be Wonder Woman but that has been denied and shot down.
Still, the role itself still exists and we may know who is in the running to fill it. Thor 2 star Jaimie Alexander may be jumping comic book universes as she has reportedly has talks with DC and Warner Bros. regarding Batman vs. Superman – and it’s not likely they were asking her opinion on the script.
Jaimie Alexander has been having “comversations” w/ WB/DC. She also knows things a/b BATMAN VS SUPERMAN’s story. Do the math… #Comikaze13

If that report ends up holding water, that would mean that another major star has been added to the cast of Zack Snyder’s film and only supporting roles are left. There’s also the Lex Luthor role to fill which many people mistakenly think has been handed to Bryan Cranston. While he’ll likely get the role, the fact of the matter remains the last major actor cast in Batman vs. Superman was Ben Affleck at the beginning of September.
Alexander is a quality actress though and it would be considered almost treasonous for her to jump from just finishing Thor: The Dark World, confirming that Thor 3 is happening and then jumping ship to join Batman vs. Superman.
We’ll keep you updated.
