Another Batman antagonist is heading to ‘Batwoman’!
The upcoming second season of Batwoman has added Alex Morf as the DC supervillain, Victor Zsasz, to its cast.
Victor Zsasz is primarily a Batman antagonist who debuted in Batman: Shadow of the Bat #1 in 1992. In the comics and most portrayals, the character is a sadomasochistic and psychopathic serial killer who carves a mark int his skin every time he kills someone. The character has been portrayed in live-action several times. He was portrayed by Tim Booth in Batman Begins, Anthony Carrigan in the Fox television series, Gotham, and, most recently, by Chris Messina in Birds of Prey. But now it appears that the character will have at least one more live-action appearance.
Since its initial debut, Batwoman is a series that has been mostly satisfied with developing its own characters and storylines from the character’s comic lore. There has been at least one exception to this, like Hush, and it appears that there will be at least one more. According to Entertainment Weekly, the show has added Alex Morf as Victor Zsasz. Morf has appeared in several television shows such as Daredevil and Mindhunter. It is currently unknown how many episodes Alex Morf’s Victor Zsasz will appear in.
