‘Gotham’s Alex Morf Cast as Victor Zsasz in ‘Batwoman’ Season 2
Looks like Batwoman‘s second season will start introducing some more iconic Batman villains. In general, the upcoming season will see a massive shift with series lead Ruby Rose being replaced by Javicia Leslie. She will play a new character named Ryan Wilder with Kate Kane’s disappearance being at the center of the second season’s story. Rachel Skarsten remains as the villainous Alice but will be joined by Shivani Ghai as Safiyah Sohail. Now, they are also adding the classic character of Victor Zsasz. He will be played by Gotham veteran Alex Morf, who played the gang leader Sykes. He also appeared in Mindhunter and Daredevil. His version of the character is described as follows.
A charismatic, skilled hitman with high, unpredictable energy. He proudly carves tally marks onto his skin for every victim he kills.
Well, it certainly sounds like Zsasz. The character’s iconic aspect is the carving of his victim count into his skin. We will see just how many people he has killed by the time the show rolls around and unveils his scars. The character has also appeared in Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn played by Chris Messina. Anthony Carrigan got a chance to play him in Gotham. It will be interesting to see what Mof brings to the table as the iconic character. We are curious how they will tie Wilder’s character to the larger Batman mythos that was teased throughout the first season. We did get introduced to this universe’s version of Hush, so there is a good chance he works for him throughout the season.
