New List of Characters in DCEU Out!
A superhero is famous for his powers, his goodness, his skills, and of course, his arch-nemesis!! Know about all the evil tyrants to appear in the DC universe.
DC Universe has always astounded us, whether it be the phenomenal superheroes or the equally exceptional evil-doers. The new list of scoundrels is an alluring blend of villains- some of them are confirmed while some are still an unannounced fantasy. Wonder Woman 1984 will release on Christmas, followed by The Suicide Squad and Batman. The movies Flash and Shazam! Fury of the Gods is not very far either. One of the other films that fans cannot wait for is Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam. Jason Mamoa will also be ready to rock our screens with the sequel Aquaman 2.
Fans are going gaga over the thought that the upcoming Justice League will feature Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash, Cyborg, and Superman! As if this was not a surprise in itself, these saviors will be combating an invasion from Apokolips led by the Steppenwolf.
What’s new in the extended universe?
Nolan stunned us with the Dark Knight trilogy and left us in awe of what was to happen next. Throughout these years, we have witnessed some breathtaking performances, Heath Ledger‘s Oscar-Winning Joker, Tom Hardy‘s Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, and not to forget the exceptional Oscar-winning acting by Joaquin Phoenix in his own solo Joker. DCEU promises us that the best is yet to come! Previously, good guys have fought off some bad ones like Doomsday, Steppenwolf, and numerous Ocean Master and Ares iterations. Here is the complete list of upcoming wickedness.
Finalized Villains of DCEU
Wonder Woman 1984, as the name suggests, will run back in time. But the twist here is not some typical villain with petty power; this ones got his business as his quirk! This evil guy appeared in the comics in 1980 with some mind-controlling capabilities. But, the moviemakers have decided to add reality to the character. Pedro Pascal (who plays the role) has played a role in popular shows like Game of Thrones and Narcos. So what he doesn’t have any abnormal power? Not so accurate, he has a shard of Chaos Crystal, and it seems he knows how to correctly use it against Wonder Woman, played by Israeli goddess Gal Gadot.
It looks like Wonder Woman has more troubles than she thought. Barbara Ann Minerva, popularly known as Cheetah, is after the lady too! Though she seems to be friends with Diana, greed for power can make one do things, like accepting an offer from Maxwell Lord. It would be thrilling to see what superpowers makes this character gains, or does it?
Uncle Steppenwolf has brought his nephew along with him. Justice League 2 was supposed to show this dark guy in a significant role. But now that it is not in the books, we would see more of him in the “Snyder Cut” of Justice League that arrives on HBO Max next year.
Batman and the new villains
Riddler will be the vital antagonist of the upcoming Batman sequel. Though he won’t be the only one, Oswald Cobblepot, a.k.a. Penguin, will be joining him. “I am not all over it by any means. But there are a couple of some tasty scenes I have in it”, said Colin Farrell, who plays the character. We would see a new face to Carmine Falcone- John Turturro.
“Black Manta will be back – I feel confident in saying that; I’m excited to step into that world again and cause some more trouble. I want to add more personality and more character to David Cane and flesh him out in Aquaman 2 and give him more of a journey,” said Yahya Abdul-Mateen II in one of his interviews. At the same time, the other villain from Aquaman, Ocean Master, played by Patrick Wilson, doesn’t leave either. You can’t kill him. He’s too important to [Arthur’s] journey … he’s a foil to [his character]. He’s not going to be a main villain in another movie,” said the actor.
Some unconfirmed characters that might appear in DCEU
Starro the Conqueror from the Justice League, Reverse Flash from Flash, Mister Mind from Shazam! Fury of the Gods, Sivana from Shazam, are few of the expected personas.
