Darkseid Confirmed in Zack Snyder’s Justice League!
Finally fans of the DC universe will get a taste of the big bad Darkseid who will get his debut in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Read on…
CelebNMovies247.com reports that Zack Snyder’s Justice League which will release next year on the HBO Max streaming service has confirmed that Darkseid will indeed appear in Snyder’s finished version of the movie.
If you recall, Darkseid was only mentioned in director Josh Whedon’s patch-job-blunder Justice League which performed poorly in theaters.
You may also recall the originally release of Justice League in 2017, did not include Darkseid. This, despite some substantial set up in the nightmare sequence from Batman v Superman. However, Joss Whedon oversaw extensive rewrites and reshoots after Zack Snyder departed the project and, as has been well documented, the result did not represent his vision.
This is why Warner Bros. should had waited for Synder to take his leave of absence, but they didn’t and so we are here.
No further details were provided at this time. Though it shouldn’t come as a surprise to those who have been following Zack Snyder’s social media activity over the years, or to hardcore DC fans who were paying attention during Man of Steel and, to a much larger degree, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Steppenwolf, a devotee of Darkseid’s, was the villain in the theatrical cut. Steppenwolf will undoubtedly still be a major focus, but it is unclear how the dynamic between the two will work out. Zack Snyder’s Justice League could have a running time of four hours, and may be split up into a miniseries, so there will be plenty of time to explore both characters. No release date has been set, but the Snyder Cut will debut sometime in 2021, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
