Lauren Cohan will play a key role in Bruce Wayne’s history!
It’s a small role, but an important one in the history of the Batman universe: Lauren Cohan of The Walking Dead was just announced as the new Martha Wayne, mother of Bruce Wayne, in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice!
Cohan, who is best known is Maggie Greene on the hit AMC drama, is confirmed for an appearance in Batman V Superman only two months before the film’s March release. This is the first hint that the film may cover Bruce Wayne’s infamous origins, with the murders of his wealthy but universally beloved parents leading the young boy down the path toward becoming a superhero.
There’s no word yet on who will play Thomas Wayne or young Bruce Wayne, assuming the flashback scene will cover the Waynes’ murder.
