‘Game Of Thrones’ Star Michael McElhatton Joins Justice League In Pivotal Role


Films’ Justice League is set to be an enormous event, so it’s no secret that the cast needs to be the same. There have already been a large number of recognizable actors added to DC’s upcoming team-up film, but it’s time to tack one more name up on that list.


Michael McElhatton starred in 19 episodes of HBO’s hit series Game Of Thrones – as terrifying villain Roose Bolton – and it looks like he’s the latest addition to Justice League’s star-studded line-up.Michael+McElhatton+Premiere+HBO+Game+Thrones+8kfK2m0ME-al


McElhatton spoke about his role in Justice League. While he couldn’t give much information, he definitely confirmed he was in the film. The actor described his role in very slight detail, saying it was in the opening scene of the movie. He said it was a very large battle scene, which could possibly allude to the battle depicted in the trailer that was released last month.


McElhatton said he’s seen some parts of the film, and that fans should be excited. He revealed that there is plenty of humor throughout Justice League, but that the opening scene he’s involved in is very dark.


Hopefully more details regarding the Game Of Thrones star’s role will come to light before the film hits theaters in November. Until then, you can catch Michael McElhatton in Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword this May.


Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder, from a screenplay by Chris Terrio, and features an ensemble cast that includes Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Ezra Miller (The Flash), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ray Fisher (Cyborg), Ciarán Hinds (Steppenwolf), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Jeremy Irons (Alfred Pennyworth), J.K. Simmons (Commissioner Gordon), Amber Heard (Mera), Kiersey Clemons (Iris West) and Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor).
