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.

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.

Why you such a cluster[frick], BvSDOJWTFAREYOUDOING
AlexanderLykins - 7/2/2014, 9:29 PM
Is this good news? How about a main villain?
Jollem - 7/2/2014, 9:30 PM
curious. we shall see. dawn of justice will be a clusterfrick of awesomeness :)
Reasonnnn - 7/2/2014, 9:33 PM
@Jollem Jollem gonna jollem
Jollem - 7/2/2014, 9:36 PM
@Reasonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn - would it make you feel better if i said marvel studios is winning?
Reasonnnn - 7/2/2014, 9:37 PM
@Reasonnn Nope. We are all sheep.
Nomis - 7/2/2014, 9:38 PM
Cool.

I love seeing actors give different interpertations of comic book characters. it's like when a new creative team comes on a book.

by the by, Zsaz was in 'Batman Begins' (I'd wished they use him more)



and Morgan edge have been on Smallvilel played by Reuger Hauger (also in "Batman Begins')

GreenLantern519 - 7/2/2014, 9:38 PM
I like the idea of having Zsaz be a villain Batman fights in the beginning just to introduce us to the new Batman. I remember seeing a picture of a Motel filming location for BvS, maybe that's where Zsaz is doing his dirty work?

I haven't been worried about this movie being crowded, but now I'm starting to feel it a little bit. If all of this is true, here are all the characters that will be in the movie:

Batman
Superman
Wonder Woman
Arthur Curry/Aquaman (Cameo?)
Victor Stone/Cyborg (Cameo?)
Alfred
Lex Luthor
Mercy Graves (played by Tao)
Holly Hunter's Senator Character
Victor Zsaz (maybe played by Callan Mulvey?)
Morgan Edge (maybe played by Scoot McNairy?)
David Cain
Amanda Waller
Martha Kent (probably only one or two scenes)
Lois Lane (She might be sidelined in this movie)
Perry White (probably only a small role)

Again, this is assuming everything we've heard is true, which I doubt. I have a funny feeling that Holly Hunter will be playing an Amanda Waller type character, but she won't be named Amanda Waller. That's a meaty role, and I'm sure they'd want to get an actress of Holly's caliber to play her if they could. They already had Waller in GL, and clearly they want to forget that movie.

Great find nail! Cheers!
thebearjew - 7/2/2014, 9:39 PM
these sound like very small story pieces
don't get your panties in a wad
thebearjew - 7/2/2014, 9:40 PM
its nice to see SOMETHING about this movie
BenderBendingRodriguez - 7/2/2014, 9:41 PM
"Edge and Luthor were members of the most notorious gangs ever to come out of Hob's Bay."


JoeMomma29 - 7/2/2014, 9:42 PM
Yup just side characters which is cool.
Jollem - 7/2/2014, 9:44 PM
i liked how crane referred to him as "Mr. Zsasz", as that's his full moniker
Superhero96 - 7/2/2014, 9:44 PM
So the rumor of Luthor being in a gang may have been true
BatManHeisenberg - 7/2/2014, 9:45 PM
When Avengers 2 adds a major character,nobody panics. When BvS adds one little old CAMEO, then everyone loses their minds. So excited, and these roles sound awesome!
EzioKenway1225 - 7/2/2014, 9:46 PM
so lex is now from a gang which was latino reviews original story and then maybe he makes himself into a zuckerberg type...hmmmmm...David cain is an interesting choice fora villain and i think Zsasz will be their ,this may not be the best explanation,but kind of like the Rhino in TASM2, he is just there for a few mins..maybe thats how batman is reintroduced into the world
JoeMomma29 - 7/2/2014, 9:47 PM
@benderBendingRodriguez

Wow you are up this late? It is well past your bedtime little man!!!!!!!
Superhero96 - 7/2/2014, 9:47 PM
Don't mind any of this except for the part about Lex having been in a gang.
feedonatreefrog - 7/2/2014, 9:48 PM
Stoked if true.

Obviously they'll be minor roles.

Please stop talking about over-crowding. Look at your favorite films and look at the number of characters.

McNairy for Zsasz?
EzioKenway1225 - 7/2/2014, 9:48 PM
anyway...again ,im not as excited for this film as i should be because some of their casting has been questionable to me and frankly..im just a little Batmaned out but hey..i know as soon as the movie is getting closer to release or when we get an official trailer..i will be losing my mind
AlexanderLykins - 7/2/2014, 9:48 PM
So this movie is basically Batman and Superman vs Lexcorp? That seems like a step down from Zod.
JoeMomma29 - 7/2/2014, 9:50 PM
@ Ezio

The only casting choice I am on the fence is Lex besides that I am fine with every choice so far even Gadot. And I am fine with Gadot because Snyder is good with powerful female characters.
JoeMomma29 - 7/2/2014, 9:51 PM
@ Alexander

You may think that but one thing Lex has over Supes is using his intellect and not muscle.
BatManHeisenberg - 7/2/2014, 9:52 PM
The rumor of a hipster Lex doesn't mesh with a former gang member in my eyes. A former gangster/current hpster? WHAT? But I'm all up for new interpretations,though. I like the idea of a modern, contemporary interpretation of Lex. Not the hugest fan of him being in a gang, but we'll see what happens.
DeusExSponge - 7/2/2014, 9:52 PM
Maybe they'll be easter egg villains that get their ass handed to them after their introduction.
Superhero96 - 7/2/2014, 9:53 PM
@Alexander

I don't mind the versus Lexcorp thing because this means that Bats and Supes won't be able to punch there way out of the problem which will be a nice change for a CBM to have the villain be taken down because they were outsmarted and outmaneuvered rather than just outgunned.
Jollem - 7/2/2014, 9:53 PM
@EzioKenway1225 - i know what you mean. i really don't care about age of ultron yet, but hopefully a trailer or something will change my mind
Bekss - 7/2/2014, 9:53 PM
BatManHeisenberg

Because Avengers is a team movie, we should expect a lot of characters in a movie like that. BvS was supposed to be a batman vs superman movie, but now WB is just making a 2 hours trailer for Justice League (which is something some people say about IM2 and even The first Avenger)
Darktower - 7/2/2014, 9:54 PM
source- latino review .. that says it all..
JoeMomma29 - 7/2/2014, 9:54 PM
@batmanheisenberg

Well like you said it is a rumor and nothing more. I have never seen or heard so many rumors, speculation, or theories about a movie.
Superhero96 - 7/2/2014, 9:55 PM
Wasn't it said that there would be no bat villains unless they just meant a bat villain wouldn't be a main villaim
GreenLantern519 - 7/2/2014, 9:55 PM
I really don't buy the whole "Lex Luthor gang member" thing. It completely contradicts every report we've heard from the set.
AlexanderLykins - 7/2/2014, 9:56 PM
@JoeMomma29
True. I was really looking forward to the possibility of Metallo. A character Batman and Superman could physically take on.
SnapperCarr - 7/2/2014, 9:56 PM
This version of Morgan Edge sounds way to similar to G Gordon Godfrey.
SnapperCarr - 7/2/2014, 9:56 PM
And for [frick]'s sake, please don't let the Lex Luthor gang thing be true.
BenderBendingRodriguez - 7/2/2014, 9:56 PM
Old man Joe got permission from the wife to come argue with little Old Geeky Bender lol Seriously, you don't have better things to do with a wife and kids? lol
BatManHeisenberg - 7/2/2014, 9:57 PM
@Bekss

Ever since Wonder Woman and Cyborg was announced I think it was obvious it was setting up for JL. I can tell from the announcements that it will very much focus on Batman and Superman and also LexCorp. Everyone else is probably VERY minor.
EzioKenway1225 - 7/2/2014, 9:57 PM
Jollem-ok..probabaly not.but fine


JoeMomma-the only two snyder films i have seen are 300(which i think is an alright film) which had a strong female character in Lena Headey and Watchmen(which i quite like) in Silk Spectre but i wasnt the biggest fan of Malin Akermans performance..maybe it was the writing or maybe it was her performance but snyder showed her badass side definitely
Bekss - 7/2/2014, 9:57 PM
According to ElMayimbe Nova is in Guardians and Fillion is playing both. nova and Cosmo so...
