Last week when Warner Bros. announced that Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, and Tao Okamoto had joined the cast of Batman vs. Superman, they said they would all be playing original characters. Fans, having heard this before (Marion Cotillard is Miranda Tate), instantly began speculating which comic book characters these actors might be playing.
According to Latino Review, Holly Hunter will be playing Leslie Thompkins, or a character with the same traits. In the comics, Thompkins is a doctor and close friend of Bruce Wayne’s dad. Thompkins serves as a surrogate parental figure to Bruce after his parents are murdered, and later becomes a confidant in his crusade as Batman, as well as an occasional critic against some of his extreme tendencies. She would often treat Bruce for medical injuries that he couldn’t go to the hospital for. Latino Review describes her as a female Alfred.
