Warning: Below Will Contain Minor Spoilers For Justice League
Another big superhero movie, more spoilers in the form of toys. Like Spider-Man: Homecoming or even last year’s Batman v Superman, the industry can’t help itself from marketing their projects early on. This time, it comes in the form of Steppenwolf. He will be the upcoming villain in Zack Synder’s Justice League. While the monstrous man is in a deleted scene from Batman v Superman, this is the first real look at the character.

In the comics, Steppenwolf is the right-hand man to Darkseid. Darkseid is the biggest evil in all of DC Comics, so this seems like a great step to introducing the character. Other than jumping right into the world of Apokolips, Steppenwolf will be the testing of the waters.
Let’s hope this is the only look we get at the character until the film’s release. The DCEU can not handle another Doomsday fiasco.
What do you think of the character design?
Let me know in the comments below!
“Fuelled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.”
Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder, from a screenplay by Chris Terrio, based on a story by Snyder and Terrio. The film stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Willem Dafoe, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
Justice League hits theaters on November 17.
