Four Villains set for Batman vs. Superman?

July 3rd, 2014 by Todd Black Comments

So in the midst of getting a BUNCH of hero confirmations for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg), it’s easy to forget that there will probably be villains in the movie as well.

While Lex Luthor is confirmed to be in the film, it’s so much of a stretch to think that someone else will show up. According to Latino Review, three villains will appear in one form or another, while two are debunked.

Let’s start with those. Despite rumors, both Metallo and Joker are reported to NOT be in the movie. So who will? First, Victor Zsasz, a well-known Batman villain (who also appeared in Batman Begins fact fans, played by Tim Booth) is said to fight the Dark Knight early on in the movie.

Second and third is Morgan Edge and David Cain. The former is a slimeball exec who works for Luthor and will square off against Lois Lane on a local talk show. The latter is an assassin who will apparently meet with Luthor’s bodyguard Mercy Graves (bonus!) to set up some kind of assassination.

Not good enough for you? Ok, how about a special bonus addition? Say… Amanda Waller?

Yep, apparently she’s in the film too! This time as a senator who REALLY doesn’t trust Superman. Shocker right?

So there you have it. We’ll have to see what’s true and what’s not, but it’s hard to deny how this movie is certainly build up the buzz!
