Ever since Jesse Eisenberg was cast as Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice back in January, some fans have been wondering if any secondary villains will be showing up as well. If a new report from Latino Review proves to be true, there will be four more baddies that Superman (Henry Cavill) will have to contend with. If you don't want to know the identities of these characters, then stop reading now.
Before these villains are uncovered, the site also notes that Metallo and The Joker, who both have been rumored at various times during pre-production, will not be seen in the movie. The secondary villains for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice include Victor Zsazs, Moran Edge, David Cain and Amanda Waller, although it is not clear how big their roles will be.
Victor Zsazs is a cold-blooded Gotham serial killer whom Batman tangles with. Victor normally kills with a knife, carving out a souvenir from each victim that he takes with him. Moran Edge is a public relations executive for LexCorp, who essentially serves as "Lex Luthor's mouthpiece." The character appears early in the movie where he is interviewed by Lois Lane (Amy Adams) on a TV talk show. The site speculates that this is the character who recent casting addition Scoot McNairy will likely play. David Cain is the third secondary villain, one of the world's premiere assassins who meets with Luthor's bodyguard Mercy Graves (rumored to be played by Tao Okamoto) to set up an assassination.
The fourth villain is none other than Amanda Waller. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Waller is, "a very stern and focused senator with an intimidating presence." She does not trust Superman and sees him as a threat, which leads her to take action.
In the comics Waller's whole family was murdered, which is what lead to her crafting her indomitable persona. The character has previously been portrayed by Angela Bassett in Warner Bros.' 2011 superhero adventure Green Lantern, Pam Grier on Smallville, and, most recently, by Cynthia Addai-Robinson in Arrow.
