So far the only Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice villain that’s been announced is Lex Luthor, who will be played by Jesse Eisenberg… with hair! Now, Latino Review claims to know which other villains will (and will not) make an appearance.
Right off the bat Latino Review’s report shoots down rumors of Metallo and The Joker — they won’t be in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. However, according to the site, these villains will:
A serial killer Batman fights early on in Gotham City. He usually kills with just a knife and carves a tally mark somewhere on himself for every victim. A real nasty piece of work.
Zsasz made a brief appearance in Batman Begins.
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.
Latino Review speculates that this is the role that the recently cast Scoot McNairy will be playing. Fun fact: Morgan Edge has been Andrew Asberry’s pick for a villain since Batman v Superman was announced last summer.
One of the world’s deadliest assassins, 50s, who meets with Luthor’s bodyguard Mercy Graves to set up an assassination.
He trained the young Bruce Wayne with some of the skills that he would use as Batman, although Bruce has never used such techniques and has since surpassed Cain in ability. Regarding his training, Batman explained, "Knowing how to kill doesn't mean you must kill."
And as a bonus, Latino Review says that Amanda Waller is in the movie as well. She’s a very stern and focused senator with an intimidating presence. She doesn’t trust Superman. Last month Batman News reported that Holly Hunter is playing a senator… could she be Amanda Waller?
All of this should be taken as rumor for now, but Latino Review has a very good track record when it comes to breaking this type of news. What do you all make of it? Let me know in the comments below!
