A hero is just nearly as good as their villain, which might be why DC has managed to grow to be so profitable through the years. For each nice hero that the comedian ebook big produces, it supplies readers with a military of nice baddies as properly. Now that the DC mythos has grow to be an interwoven franchise on the silver display screen, we count on the identical to occur within the realm of films.
On that notice, with Steppenwolf set to make his live-action debut when Justice League hits theaters later this 12 months on November 17, and Black Manta and Ocean Grasp set to do the identical when Aquaman debuts on December 21, 2018, we discovered it prudent to undergo the entire upcoming DC movies and determine which villains we’d wish to see in every undertaking. With that in thoughts, let’s dive in and begin issues off with Billy Batson’s upcoming journey.
Shazam – Dr. Sivana
Though typical knowledge would seemingly dictate that Black Adam could be the unhealthy man in a Shazam film, it seems that DC is protecting The Rock’s model of the supervillain at arm’s length for now. If that is the case, then we predict the Shazam film ought to go the extra grounded route and make Billy Batson face off in opposition to Dr. Sivana. An evil super-genius with a deep-seated hatred of Earth’s Mightiest Mortal, Sivana is a extra lifelike and Earth-based risk who may assist DC dip a toe into the Shazam nook of its lore with out getting too loopy too rapidly.
The Batman – The Courtroom of Owls
Simply when folks thought that Batman could not get any extra nice unhealthy guys in his rogues gallery, Scott Snyder got here alongside and gave us The Courtroom of Owls in The New 52. An Illuminati-esque group that was secretly working Gotham Metropolis lengthy earlier than the arrival of The Caped Crusader, The Courtroom is a fan-favorite component of the comics that might simply permit Matt Reeves and Ben Affleck to interrupt away from the everyday “psychotic” unhealthy guys that Batman fights. Past that, it will allow them to to embrace a extra grounded and noir-style detective story for The Darkish Knight.
