Together they lead a large group of names that are familiar to all kinds of genres of films and movies. There are two Daarios from Game of Thrones: Michiel Huisman and Ed Skrein star opposite each other as enemies, instead of the same person competing for the Targaryen heart. Snyder also brought it The Justice League star Ray Fisher, his Cyborg; the squad of galactic warriors willing to risk everything for freedom also includes stars like Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy)Djimon Hounsou (Shazam), Doona Bae (Sense8)and Staz Nair (Supergirl), as well as newcomer E. Duffy.
