    Chris Messina Joins Warner Bros./DC’s ‘Birds Of Prey’ As Bad Guy Victor Zsasz

    Chris Messina has joined Warner Bros./DC’s Birds Of Prey in the villainous role of Victor Zsasz, a sadistic serial killer who carves a tally mark onto himself for each of his victims. Zsasz will be working in cahoots with Ewan McGregor’s lead bad guy Black Mask. Cathy Yun is directing from Christina Hodson’s screenplay.

    Interesting I guess

    Kind of annoyed that birds of prey has more interesting villains then what is rumored for The Batman

    I'll just repeat what I said in the main thread, Messina is very good at playing second fiddle type roles so this should suit him very well.

    This is an odd bit of casting. I like Messina and he was really good in Sharp Objects but he feels like a strange choice for Zsasz. Maybe it could work though.

    After Suicide Squad's commitmen to the grungy, dirty, tattoo-addicted aesthetic, wouldn't it be hilarious for BOP to go the other way and be very high-fashion? That's the vibe Messina's hair is giving me.

    I hope he does well. I loved Zsasz from Gotham and the Arkham games, and hopefully they can beat those on film.

    I wonder how Zsasz ends up disfigured in this film

    Zsasz was quite unhinged here and much closer to the comics than the one in Gotham.

    Yeah I really enjoyed Chris Messina's performance in this as Zsasz even if it was a little much at times. I found him even scarier than Ewan in certain scenes though.

    Yeah, not the guy you want to be left in a room alone with, definitely more so than Black Mask.

    He could turn up the creep factor whenever he wanted, also I liked that he was not shown as dumb henchman.

    Yep. This is also the kind of henchman I like. One with his own distinct personality who is contributing plenty to the proceedings in his own individual way. Every evil crime boss needs a Zsasz. :word::D

    I liked that both Black Mask and Zsasz were bit goofy. :D

    Zsasz was a stylish mofo as well. Yan did a great job of maintaining and improving the flashiness of the criminal underworld that Ayer established in SS.

    He was definitely more of an "advisor/right hand man " type than a henchman, and I loved that they kept his deranged "liberation" mentality.

    Him telling Black Canary to "pull the ****ing car over right now" all calm and **** was genuinely menacing
