By the end of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice many fans assumed that Darkseid would be the big villain that the heroes would fight in Justice League: Part One. According to Birth.Movies.Death, that’s not correct. They are reporting that Steppenwolf will be the main villain.
We actually get a look at Steppenwolf (or what appears to be a projection of him) in a deleted scene from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice that Warner Bros. released online just days after the movie hit theaters. Check it out below:
In the comics Steppenwolf is the uncle of Darkseid and the military leader of Apokolips. Birth.Movies.Death says that Darkseid won’t be completely absent in Justice League: Part One — he’ll appear towards the end — but probably just to set up Justice League: Part Two.
What do you make of this rumor? Is Steppenwolf a villain you want to see in Justice League: Part One? Let me know in the comments below.
