Latino-Review is claiming that they have the scoop on three secondary villains that will be appearing in ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’. Now, as always, anytime you see rumors like this, you must take them with a grain of salt, but the rumored news does come on the heels of Zack Snyder’s reveal of the first official photo of Superman from ‘Dawn of Justice’, so take that how you will.
The first villain claimed to be in the movie is, Victor Szasz, a particularly nasty serial killer, who scores a tally mark on his skin for every person he has killed. Victor Zsasz was the head of his own international company and was independently wealthy. At the age of 25 his parents died in a boating accident, sending him into a deep depression. He turned to gambling, losing money in competitions around the world.
Szasz ended up in a Gotham City casino known as the Iceberg Lounge, where he gambled everything he owned, and ended up losing it all to none other than the Penguin. After losing everything, Szasz attempted to commit suicide, but before he could complete the act, he was attacked by a homeless man with a knife. Instinctively grabbing the knife, Zsasz saw in the man’s eyes that all life is meaningless and that nothing nor anyone matters.
He then proceeded to stab the man to death as a “gift” for saving his life. From then on, he dedicated himself to “liberating” others from their pointless existence. He usually preys on young women, but has no qualms over whom he murders. He slits his victims’ throats and leaves them in lifelike poses, adding a tally mark to himself each time.
Szasz would be an interesting addition to the villains of ‘Dawn of Justice’, although I’m not sure how exactly he would fit in. If in fact he is in the movie, the story would definitely take a very dark turn.
