Who is Bloodsport?
Bloodsport in the DC film is Robert DuBois, played by Idris Elba. Robert DuBois is one of the notable incarnation of Bloodsport who is an adversary of Superman.
The Bloodsport alias has been used by several fictional supervillains in DC Comics. All of his incarnations have been skilled in hand-to-hand combat. Robert DuBois is skilled in using knives, firearms and explosives, while also having access to some high-tech weaponry.
Take note, Epic Games in an official blog post noted, “Bloodsport is putting Superman on notice. Ahead of the Man of Steel’s arrival in the Chapter 2 Season 7 Battle Pass.” This could mean that this season chapter would be intermingled in a much larger way than before with the next chapter.
