SPOILERS: More details on that rumoured Justice League bad guy, including a very cool battle scene

May 12th, 2016 by Marc Comments


Ok, so remember yesterday that story broke that seemed to have Steppenwolf (above) as the main bad guy in the first Justice League movie?

Well, now Heroic Hollywood are stoking the fire with some cool details about his role in the movie and, if true, there’s going to be some fun stuff in this movie, including the presence of Darkseid: “Darkseid is a presence in the movie, and fully appears at the end of the film, but don’t expect him to do much.”

But they add that Darkseid will also be present during the beginning – possibly the opening of the movie – in a powerful scene set outside the events of the movie: “Around 30,000 years ago, the Amazonians, the Atlanteans, and Man successfully fought off Darkseid here on Earth. He left three motherboxes behind and that folks is what Steppenwolf is after in Justice League: Part One. That is pretty much your plot. You can see Steppenwolf and the three motherboxes in the deleted “Communion” scene from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (which we’ve embedded below).”

Further speculation suggests that the mother boxes were left in the possession of the earth people – one for humans, one for Atlanteans and one for the Amazons. We know that one of the mother boxes are seen in the creation of Cyborg in Batman V Superman… as for the rest? Well, we’ll have to wait and see…

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….
