Superhero-journalist with Gangster boss with hard to pronounce name and double-headed pistol adopts name blood-something

I am having a weird moment where I can’t remember who the primary protagonists and the primary antagonists are, but I remember some side characters and a few scenes…I would really appreciate if any one of you can help me out. I saw this I’d say around 2 years ago, and it was on the plane so by then it already left theaters if it was a new release…pretty sure it was a new movie

The first scene I remembered was this old gangster guy stepped out of a car carrying a suitcase walking into a fancy building. He sits down in a room with the (casino I think)’s boss, “Danny”, and is apparently there to display his authority in the turf because this guy is running a business in his turf without his consent/involvement. The Danny guy makes fun of him, mocking his age and his “boringness”, and his name (which I remember is hard to pronounce and has the syllable -Judd)…and insinuates that he needs a catchier name like a superhero (I think he referred to the protagonist), which genuinely bothered the gangster (which is comical). He also flaunts about how he dresses his bodyguards beside him with name brands such as Gucci and etc….only for them to suddenly be gunned down by the boss with his double-headed pistol, and he sincerely asks “danny” if the pistol is boring, and said it was really hard to make. Danny was piss-scared at this point and begged to be spared, saying he will spread the word on how great he is if he lets him live. To this, the gangster leader “spares” him by walking out of the building…only to blow it up with the suitcase bomb seen in the beginning which he left in the room.

I also remember he’s not the “main villain”, but that he joined forces with the main villain (which I also forget who), and is now quickly taking over the city thanks to that…he also ended up adopting the monicker Blood-anotherpartofhisname, there was a scene where the protagonist is trying to steal back/destroy some files from the news office which is closed or something? I remember a theme where this blood-something guy who now dons a mask has the Protagonist pinned down on the ground in a dark/dimly lit journal office with his double-headed pistol…and the superhero theme somehow connects me to the fact that the Protagonist was some kind of super hero, but I remember it also being not very surprising when he was pinned down by a guy with no super powers other than a doubleheaded gun…so he was either not very strong or the power was new to him and he’s not yet proficient at using it. I also seem to vaguely remember that a car/motorcycle or some kind of vehicle managed break through the windows in the building and crash into blood-something which caused his demise.

I unfortunately don’t quite have any actor names…I can only recall that the guy who portrayed “blood-something” is an American actor and I was so surprised since he had such a convincing slavic(?) accent in his role…his name MIGHT start with Gary, but I can’t find him

I know I know it’s pretty dumb I don’t remember the protagonist or the antagonist…but I think that goes to show how much this character struck me

    1. The gangster boss with hard to pronounce name is Chudnofsky, played by Christoph Waltz.
      Quote from Wikipedia:
      ‘Chudnofsky, meanwhile, suffers a midlife crisis and reinvents himself as the supervillain “Bloodnofsky”.’
