The upcoming debut of Victor Zsasz in Batwoman brings the show closer to its Batman roots while also laying the groundwork for new stories centered on the iconic villain. Not much is known about the role of Zsasz in the overall narrative, but it’s a safe bet that the character will not be featured in a one and done affair.
Entertainment Weekly shared in a report that Gotham actor Alex Morf will guest star as Batman villain Victor Zsasz in Batwoman season 2. The outlet also revealed the official character description of Zsasz for Batwoman, describing the villain as a “charismatic, skilled hitman with high, unpredictable energy. He proudly carves tally marks onto his skin for every victim he kills.”
Morf previously played a gang leader named Sykes in Fox’s Gotham TV show.
For example, Fox’s Gotham show featured Victor Zsasz, who was then played by Anthony Carrigan, in a minor role during the first few seasons before eventually taking on a more significant role down the line. That being said, there’s a chance that Morf’s version of the character will be prominently featured in future seasons instead of being relegated to a villain-of-the week-type of storyline.
