3 More Villains Revealed For BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE
El Mayimbe of Latino-Review.com has just dropped some wonderful scoops regarding villains that will and will not be in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Let's start with which villains won't be in the mix. According to El Mayimbe, Metallo and The Joker won't appear in the film. In the past, the gossip site, TMZ, had claimed actor Callan Mulvey ("300: Rise Of An Empire") would be the Clown Prince of Crime.
Superstar scooper, El Mayimbe from Latino Review, has set off the fireworks a bit early, but we're sure glad he did. His latest scoop reveals that there will be three more villains featured in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Check'em out!
Okay, let's check out the three secondary villains that source for El Mayimbe have confirmed are in the film.
Victor Zsasz: He's one of Batman's nastiest foes. A serial killer who enjoys killing his victims with a blade. To keep track of how many people he's killed he carves a mark on his own body.
Morgan Edge: "If I was a betting man, I would put money on Scoot McNairy playing this guy. In the movie, Edge is a total slimeball and a public relations exec for Lexcorp. Basically, he's Lex Luthor's mouth piece. We meet Edge early on when he goes toe to toe with Lois Lane in a television talk show. In the movie's backstory, Edge and Luthor were members of the most notorious gangs ever to come out of Hob's Bay. This is the kind of role that is in McNary's wheelhouse. I just don't see McNairy playing Dick Grayson/Nightwing because Grayson is in his mid 20s in the movie and McNairy is 36." - El Mayimbe
David Cain: Despite being in his 50's, he's considered one of the finest assassins. He'll be instructed by Lex Luthor's bodyguard, Mercy Graves (Tao Okamoto), to do what he does best, kill. In the comics, he was employed by Lex to frame Bruce Wayne for the murder of Vesper Fairchild. He doesn't carry out his orders as a backstory involving his daughter complicates things.
Amanda "The Wall" Waller will also appear in Batman v Superman. El Mayimbe reports: "She's in the movie and plays a very stern and focused senator with an intimidating presence. She doesn't trust Superman. At all. Sees him as a threat and comes up with a counter measure that I won't spoil."
In the comics, her whole family were murdered and this is what gives her that tough as nails presence. You can think of her as a female version of Nick Fury - not that far off. She is best known for recruiting villains for the Suicide Squad and having them perform missions for the government to lesson their sentences. She's been portrayed by several actresses: Angela Bassett in Green Lantern, Pam Grier in Smallville and Cynthia Addai-Robinson in Arrow.
BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE - Zack Snyder will direct. It's written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer. The film stars: Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent and Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne. The cast also includes: Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Ma Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. Will arrive in theaters May 6, 2016.
