Gotham city's worst hit-man and a psychopathic serial killer made his way to the TV screens in Gotham series, and Anthony Carrigan depicted the character as no one else was out there for the job! But, recent news has revealed that Live By The Night's Gangster Chris Messina will be taking the DC Universe, where his friend Ben Affleck left!
As per reports, Messina isn't the ultimate villain but is the new right hand to Black Mask's (played by Ewan McGregor) side-kick.
Victor Zsasz, or simply Zsasz, is a DC Comics' fictional super-villain who is even more dangerous than Dead Shot as he has no weakness.
He is Arkham asylum's prodigy criminal, a mad man who's guns make more sound than his voice ever does. He is stubborn and cold-blooded.
The character first appeared in Batman: Shadow of the Bat edition 1 on June 1992.
He is a psychopathic serial killer who carves a counting mark on himself. Superhero Batman's recurring rival, Zsasz, belongs to the group of rivals that make up the rogues gallery of Batman.
Its a serious task in hand for actor Chris Messina to bring someone like Zsasz to bring into life, the process will be a challenge if he is not so much of a comic-book fan.
But if he could somehow nail the role, he can be seen creating all sorts of trouble to The Dark Knight for a really long time.
For now, all we can say is, "the scary mob will be a watchable character in DC Extended Universe film Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn).
The former prince of Gotham, Ben Affleck, is Chris Messina's former co-actor and friend, and his wife Jenny is the president of Ben Affleck and Matt Damon's company Pearl Street Films, so they definitely are each other's good friend.
As per many tabloids, Affleck has talked about the sparks and dark-side of being a DC actor with Chris.
Additionally, Affleck has also given Messina a few tricks to get into the role of Victor Zsasz and emerge as the HIT-MAN.
We don't know how much of this is true, but for now, it looks like the smoke is coming right from the amber.
The Movie Birds Of Prey is now in its Post-Production phase and will feature Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, alongside Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, who will be on a mission against villain Black Mask and his twisted team of super-villains.
