Carla Gugino has teased that she has a secret role in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice. In fact, the actress has revealed that she has already recorded her performance for an unknown part in Zack Snyder’s blockbuster hybrid.
Carla Gugino made this revelation as she live tweeted the HBO screening of San Andreas on Saturday night. During the social media session, Carla Gugino was asked a few questions by fans, one of which was whether or not she’d be appearing in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.
And this provoked Gugino to make the revelation that she will indeed be in the film, but that it isn’t in that big a capacity.
You might hear me in it if you listen carefully.???? https://t.co/54sNVfmmb3

Carla Gugino has previously appeared in both Watchmen and Sucker Punch, which were directed by Zack Snyder, while she also recorded an uncredited voice role in Man Of Steel too, in which she played the Kryptonian service robot Kelor.
It’s unlikely that Carla Gugino will be lying about appearing in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, so people will now be on the hunt to try and find the actress’ appearance in the film. Will it be another voice role related to Krypton? Or maybe it will see her voicing something linked to Batman?
This will actually be Carla Gugino’s fourth comic book movie, because as well as 2013’s Man Of Steel and 2009’s Watchmen, she also appeared in 2005’s Sin City, too.
There is growing excitement for Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, as it’s now just under a month away from release. While the likes of Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, and Diane Lane were all introduced in Man Of Steel, the latest entry into the DC Cinematic Universe will bring Batman into the world.
As most of you know, Bruce Wayne/Batman will be played by Ben Affleck, while Jeremy Irons is starring as Alfred Pennyworth, Gal Gadot is debuting as Wonder Woman, and Jesse Eisenberg is also making his first turn as the villain Lex Luthor.
In fact, the Oscar-nominated Social Network actor recently talked to Entertainment Weekly about portraying the iconic foe, insisting that the complexity of Lex Luthor was what originally appealed to him.

Eisenberg said of Lex Luthor, “He has a kind of charming public persona, and then a deeply private rage. And this is not only interesting as an actor to play, but I would say more realistic to how extroverted people like this, who are kind of leaders of big organizations, probably feel.”
“You have to kind of put on a public front that appears genial and appears accessible, but you’re likely — if you’re very ambitious — harboring feelings of competitiveness, envy, and all these other things we try to avoid in public,” Eisenberg continued. “So stuff like that was very interesting as an actor to explore. And then kind of coloring in that framework is somebody who’s also very clever and funny and emotional and vengeful.”
Eisenberg then added, “When I read the script, I thought, this character is rendered so incredibly well that I just have to do what I know I do well, and it will be a great character because the character is full of interesting, contradictory, realistic elements that make a character wonderful. And as an actor, those are the most comfortable and convenient characters to play. The difficult characters to play are the ones where it doesn’t seem like the character has been rendered realistically or with human feelings behind them. That wasn’t the case with this character.”
