Who Is Playing Granny Goodness?
The first teaser of Zack Snyder’s Justice League confirmed that New God, Darkseid, is the main villain and would be accompanied by his best known right-hand man, DeSaad. However, the first real trailer for the cut (released Februrary 14, 2021) revealed that this was more than a devious duo, but an unholy trinity completed by Granny Goodness, but only to the most eagle-eyed viewers.
Seriously, you can barely tell that the elderly torture expert is even in the trailer, let alone see her face, and IMDb is no help either as her name and the actress who plays her are listed nowhere in the credits. Academy Award-winner Kathy Bates was previously rumored for the role in Ava DuVernay’s New Gods movie, but the status of that adaptation is a whole different story. Honestly, I think I am OK with staying in the dark on this reveal, considering we already know where (or, more accurately, in whom) to find another favorite DC character.
