Report: Three More Bad Guys For Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice

The Latino Review is reporting that three more villains will be appearing in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. These villains will be appear secondary to the film’s primary antagonist, Lex Luthor.

The first of the three is Victor Zsazs, a Gotham serial killer. He favors a knife and keeps a tally of his victims by carving a tally mark into his own body after each kill. The report suggests that Batman will take Zsazs out early in the film while in Gotham and that he may be played by Callan Mulvey.

The second villain is Morgan Edge, who will be set up as a public relations executive at LexCorp, essentially Luthor’s mouthpiece, and basically an all-around tool. He’ll be seen trading wits with Lois Lane on a talk show during the film. The report suggests that this is the role that Scoot McNairy was cast for, and not Nightwing, as some have suggested.

It’s worth noting that Edge, at least his clone (its complicated), has a direct connection to Intergang, which itself has a connection to Darkseid, who is rumored to be the primary villain in Justice League. Whether this connection is made in the film remains to be seen.

Lastly, David Cain will also appear in the film as a middle-aged assassin for hire. The report suggests that Luthor’s bodyguard, Mercy Graves, will meet with Cain to set up an assassination, but doesn’t reveal who the target will be.

As a bonus, the report also mentions that Amanda Waller will make an appearance. Waller will be a senator who mistrusts Superman and sets up her own countermeasure to the hero. The role of Amanda Waller is currently uncast. Previous reports have suggested that Holly Hunter would play a politician as well, so perhaps she’ll have
 some shared scenes with Waller.

The report dispels rumors that Metallo and/or the Joker would be appearing in the film, but does hint that the Joker will be mentioned when a particularly important event in Batman’s backstory is referenced.

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice comes to theaters May 6, 2016.
