Rick Flag Sr. Arrests Superman on Set in an Exciting New Video Teasing Mysterious Villain


‘Superman’ is currently shooting in Cleveland which was transformed into Metropolis a week ago. Thanks to the shooting we’ve gotten our first good look at Superman’s suit and plenty of other supporting characters.

The latest video from the set showcases Rick Flag Sr. as he arrests Superman alongside The Engineer and another mysterious character who can only be a villain from our understanding.

You can check out the video below:

Frank Grillo as Rick Flag and María Gabriela de Faría as the Engineer were confirmed to take part in the movie some time ago, Grillo will also reprise his role in ‘Creature Commando’ animated project and Peacemaker Season 2. But who on earth is the third character?

Superman’s new antagonist is difficult to identify because, unlike other characters in Superman’s universe, this villain doesn’t wear a recognizable comic-accurate costume. Instead, he dons a completely black uniform and mask, black goggles, and has a U-shaped logo on his chest. Despite this, fans have been sharing their theories about his identity on social media.

The most obvious choice considering the “U” is Ulysses. Ulysses aka Neil Quinn was born on Earth, but his parents, scientists, sent him to another dimension called the Fourth Dimension to save him from an impending disaster they believed would destroy Earth. Ulysses grew up in the Fourth Dimension, developing superpowers similar to Superman’s due to the unique properties of that dimension.

Upon returning to Earth, Ulysses initially believes he is the last surviving human from his home planet. He meets Superman and views him as a kindred spirit. However, as the story progresses, Ulysses’s views become more antagonistic. He attempts to take a large number of Earth’s population to the Fourth Dimension, believing it to be a utopia compared to Earth.

The second most likely choice is Ultraman. Ultraman was already teased to be the main villain of the movie months ago, and Gunn debunked it a couple of hours later. Gunn claimed that the main villain of the movie will be Lex Luthor, however, he didn’t exactly deny that Ultraman will appear in the movie.

It’s also important to note that so far some things that Gunn “debunked” in the past already come true, first and foremost the design of the suit itself. You can check out more photos of the cast below courtesy of Just Jared:
