Is this who the Justice League will face off against in the first movie?

May 12th, 2016 by Marc Comments


Remember just a few days after Batman V Superman hit cinemas DC/Warners released a deleted scene from the movie featuring New God Steppenwolf?

No? Ok, watch it here, then read on:

Anyway, the scene was pretty cool and many proclaimed it should have been kept in the movie because it explained a few of the ployholes in the movie – how was Luthor caught, how did he know about Darkseid are just two of them.

Anyway, if new rumours are true, then there’s another reason it should have been kept in… because he’s going to be a big deal in Justice League.

According to BirthMoviesDeath, it was indeed Steppenwolf and he’ll be one of the lead villains in Justice League.


The site reports: “Steppenwolf will have “a contentious history with Darkseid” which will lead to the battle that the Justice League can’t quite win on their own, forcing them to “turn to a dead friend for help.”

In the comics Steppenwolf has been the leader of Darkseid’s army of Apokolips and is one of the New Gods. So we could see him arriving in Justice League Part 1 and paving the way for Darkseid’s arrival in the second movie.

Just a thought.

But we reckon there’s something to this.

Do you?

Justice League Part 1 will star Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot as Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman along with Jason Mamoa as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Amber Heard as Queen Mera along with Willem Dafoe in a mystery role, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.

It will arrive on November 10th, 2017.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
