“On the one hand, I would say there are some villains, or so-called villains, in our movie. And on the other hand, I would say there are no villains in any way that could be part of the exploration and message of the movie,” Miller explained at DC FanDome in October 2021. “I’m going to say those things because they don’t make any sense together, and it leaves it all a little cryptic and mysterious. That’s good for a villain to create an atmosphere of mystery around them – until they pop out!”
