3 Possible Bad Guys We’ll See In Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

Posted by July 4, 2014 Comment

Latino-Review.com says it knows 3 of the bad guys for the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie.

We start with Victor Zsasz (which they got the spelling wrong on their site). Zsasz is a serial killer who cuts a small slash into his skin for every kill. The same way the Doctor kept track of the Silence… only more intense. Zsasz first appeared in Batman: Shadow Of The Bat #1 created by Alan Grant and Norm Breyfogle. He also appeared in Batman Begins played by Tim Booth.

Next up is David Cain, one of the world’s premier assassins. He debuted in Batman #567 and was created by Kelley Puckett and Damion Scott. Cain is a member of the League of Assassins and the father of Cassandra Cain, one of the women who has spent time as Batgirl. Cain is reported to have some dealings with Lex Luthor’s bodyguard Mercy Graves about setting up an assassination.

And finally we come to Morgan Edge, PR man for Lex Luthor. In the comics he was created by Jack Kirby in Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen #133 and was the leader of Intergang. Edge made a few appearances on Smallville played at first by Rutger Hauer and then later by Patrick Bergin. In the New 52, Edge is the owner of the Daily Planet.

They also speculate that Amanda Waller will be in the film which wouldn’t be surprising, but that opens up a lot of questions like which Waller? The older, heavy-set Waller like pre-New 52 and as portrayed by Pam Grier on Smallville or the newer, sleek and young Waller played by Cynthia Addai-Robinson on Arrow.

And just because Stephen Amell came out and said that he is not going to be in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it doesn’t mean it’s not a shared universe and they can’t share a Waller.

Latino Review has been pretty good with the scoops on the comic book movies, but until I see a more definitive announcement this will stay speculative for me.
