As the saying goes, every great story needs a great villain.

To date, the DC Extended Universe has offered up a mixed bag of bad guys, ranging from good, to decent, to painful (here's lookin' at you, Lex). This shared cinematic realm has showcased some of DC Comics' most notorious villains since it began back in 2013 with Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, but there's still so many of DC's famed rogues available to be given the big-screen treatment.

Of course, the very future of the DCEU is an uncertain one right now, yet there are plentiful movies in various stages of development. So much so, it's safe to start looking through the ranks of DC's most infamous names and see which ones would be best suited to being brought to life in an upcoming feature.

With that in mind, then, here are some of the most sinister wrong 'uns that would be great additions to the DCEU over the next few years.
