Behind the scenes

  • In the original DC Comics, Adrian Chase was a district attorney and later judge in New York City. After his wife and children were murdered by the mob, he became the Vigilante, to punish those who the justice system couldn't. However, after losing everyone in his life, Adrian's already fragile mind shattered, and he committed suicide.
  • Vigilante in the DC Extended Universe was originally supposed to be portrayed by Chris Conrad, but Conrad left the role in late May 2021 due to creative differences. He was replaced by Freddie Stroma.[1]
