Let's be honest, a character like this appearing on the big screen these days will almost certainly be achieved through motion capture. And who better to portray this psychotic cyborg than the undisputed king of motion capture animation, Andy Serkis?
From Gollum to King Kong to the Planet of the Apes reboot trilogy's Caesar, Serkis knows motion capture like no-one else does. Not only that, but he's also well-accustomed to playing the bad guy, as his parts in Lord of the Rings and the modern Star Wars trilogy show.
In the 1980s animated series, Trap Jaw is largely just one of Skeletor's lackeys, but, despite his seemingly low intellect, his robotic arm and diamond-hard metal jaw make him a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield.
It's unclear what sort of tone this reboot will be going for; will it pay homage to the goofiness of the original cartoons and toy lines, or will it go the darker route like many of the DCEU's movies? Either way, there's no questioning that Serkis is the man for the job.
