    This is kind of reminiscent of how people use to dogpile on the MCU for their lack of significant Villain presence. But, yeah I guess Zod since nobody else is really more than just serviceable at best.

    It used to be one of the constant criticisms of the MCU in that none of the villains either were really villains ie Loki or The Winter Soldier etc or were forgettable. Then you noticed a significant rise in the number of ultra fans going out of their way to praise the villains without a significant rise in their quality IMO.

    Other than Thanos in IW & Killmonger, the rest of the MCU's villains have been woeful. It's one of the very few things the MCU hasn't done very well.

    While I generally would agree with this, I did like Ego and Hela as well. Vulture was good but wasn’t amazing for me.

    Not technically a villain during most of the film but Mark Strong as Sinestro was IMHO head and shoulders above any of the choices in this poll - he absolutely nailed the character in both appearance and mannerisms.

    Green Lantern isn't part of the DCEU though.

    So what ? Sinestro is a classic DC villain, and IMHO Strong's performance was still better than any on this list - regardless of whether he was part of the DCEU or not.

    I enjoyed the villains in Man of Steel, Wonder Woman, and Aquaman. Hated the rest.

    Haven't seen Shazam! yet.

    Well I made this thread specifically for the DCEU villains we have had so far, which he wasn’t part of, I agree he was awesome though.

    If the MCU can bring back JK Simmons as JJ Jameson (from the Raimi series) then DC can bring back Strong as Sinestro. Djimon Hounsou has played 2 different characters in 2 different DCEU films - add Sinestro's make-up/prosthetics or cgi and it's no big deal.

    Yeah but it took the MCU 11 years to do something like that. And Strongs role as Dr Sivanna, which it looks like he will reprise, makes things more confusing.

    Nobody minded Brolin doing Thanos and Cable at the same time. And the tale of two Quicksilvers was way more confusing to an ill informed audience than any actor sharing could ever be.

    I love Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor and I hope he gets another chance to play the character again at some point.

    Zod followed closely by his cohort Faora. I would love to see a Wonder Woman vs Faora fight

    Next Justice League movie should feature the Injustice League with Lex Luthor and Sinestro, as well as several other villains played by Mark Strong all played by Mark Strong, with a cameo by Dr Sivana, also played by Mark Strong - strongest film ever!
