Ranking Every DCEU Movie Villain Including Ewan McGregor’s Black Mask

There have been many ups and downs in the seven-year-long history of the DC Extended Universe, and perhaps nowhere is that better illustrated than the franchise’s history with villains. After all, with most of these films the antagonist drives the plot, and so the quality of the antagonist often reflects the quality overall. The most recent title in the canon, Cathy Yan’s Birds Of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn) is a perfect example, as Ewan McGregor’s Roman Sionis a.k.a. Black Mask is one of the best baddies that we’ve seen so far from these movies.

This thought led to another thought: how do all of the villains of the DC Extended Universe – as defined by their nefarious plots in the various films – stack up against one another? We put some thought to that idea, and after reflecting on the eight blockbusters we’ve seen in the franchise thus far (including Birds of Prey), we’ve put together this ranking that sees them subjectively put in order from worst to best:

12. Enchantress (Cara Delevingne)

Being entirely blunt and honest, it’s hard to think of anything overly nice to say about Cara Delevingne’s Enchantress from David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. Even immediately after seeing the movie it’s hard to describe her motivation or abilities; instead you can really only conjuring an image of the actress waving her hands in the air near a bunch of swirling CGI. She seems to exist solely to generate groups of ugly monsters that the characters in the titular team can kill, and it’s entirely lame. Going back to the point in the intro, Enchantress is really central to most of the things wrong with the movie as a whole.
