Is KGBeast In BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE?

Over the past few days, Filming In Chicago has been posting images and information from the set of Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. That person came across an actor's trailer that had the name 'Knyazev' on it. Could it be, Anatoli Knyazev?

Twitter account, Filming in Chicago recently shared an image of a trailer on the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with the name 'Kahina Double' on it. The name is unusual and it happens to match a character from DC Comics. Thus, there's a chance she's in the film. Though, it could be a bit of misdirection from a savvy production crew. We probably won't know until the film comes out.

Filming In Chicago also came across an actor's trailer with 'Knyazev' on it, but for some reason that hasn't been getting any attention. If you do a quick search you will see that it matches the last name of DC Comics' Anatoli Knyazev, aka KGBeast. He's a Russian assassin that was trained by a secret faction of the KGB, known as "The Hammer." He's been cybernetically enhanced and has mastered martial arts and various deadly weapons. He first appeared in Batman #417 (March 1988), and was created by Jim Starlin and Jim Aparo. Fans of CW's Arrow will recognize the name as the character has been utilized in multiple episodes; played by David Nykl.

Possible Spoilers! Possible Spoilers! Possible Spoilers!

Okay, let's do some speculating. Recently, a person claiming to be a Batman v Superman extra said there was a scene involving a funeral for the President of the United States. If KGBeast is in the film it would seem like a reasonable assumption that he would be used to assassinate the President. Maybe Lex Luthor is the person that hires him? And who might be playing KGBeast? How about Callan Mulvey ("300: Rise of an Empire")? We know he's in the film, and multiple people in Chicago claimed to have seen him in the presence of Henry Cavill and Amy Adams these past few days. As far as I know, nobody has been able to get a picture of him.

To take this one step further, KGBeast appeared in the 2014 animated feature, Batman: Assault on Arkham. Despite its name, it focuses on the formation of the Suicide Squad. Knowing that property is being developed into a film by director David Ayer ("Fury") could make KGBeast a great character to bridge Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with Suicide Squad.
