Aka: Waylon Jones
Played by: Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje
Speciality: Brawn

As a child, Waylon Jones was beset by a disease that gave him reptilian skin. He saw a psychiatrist. And ate her. “He’s a cannibal with rage issues,” says Akinnuoye-Agbaje. “Although he only eats the most talented people. He’s picky.” His signature move? The croc-inspired death roll. “It’s absolutely brutal.”

Origins: An enemy of Batman dating back to 1983 and first crafted by Gerry Conway and Gene Colan, Killer Croc did not have an easy youth, hated by his drunken aunt and spurring him to a life of crime. He boasts superhuman strength, speed, agility, reflexes, stamina, durability and senses. Plus, he can swim like no one else, and he's also an expert marksman. He spends a lot of his time in Arkham Asylum, but will end up at Belle Reve for the film.
