WATCH: New Batman V Superman deleted scene answers a big question from the movie

March 28th, 2016 by Marc Comments


Watch a deleted scene from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice which features Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor and a mysterious, villainous creature which we believe to be Steppenwolf (one of Justice League villain Darkseid’s Elite).

According to some fans, this could be Steppenwolf, a supervillain who is one of Darkseid’s Elite.

As one of the New Gods, Steppenwolf (which is German for “Wolf of the Steppe,” or coyote) is the younger brother of Heggra, and the uncle of Uxas (Darkseid). He is also a member of Darkseid’s Elite. He leads the military of Apokolips and also rides a hover bike which may be at the same level of technology as Orion’s.

His powers and abilities are described as follows:

Steppenwolf is an immortal with superhuman strength, speed, endurance and reflexes. He is a highly talented military leader. He has served as the head of Apokolips’ armed forces, and when going into battle personally often commands units of the dog cavalry, warriors riding enormous dogs, for the carnage and mass deaths he causes when he leads forces in battle. Steppenwolf wields various weapons, including a cable-snare in which he can entrap an opponent, and from which he can fire lethal radion beams. His main weapon is his electro-axe. He is a master swordsman and a formidable hand-to-hand combatant.

If the creature is indeed Steppenwolf, the cubes are likely Mother Boxes. These can facilitate interstellar transportation and would go a long way in explaining the creature’s disappearance. The Mother Boxes were briefly seen in the movie related to the character Cyborg.

Also, it’s curious that this scene was cut as it also explains how Lex Luthor ended up in custody – his capture was not shown. It also further explains Luthor’s knowledge of Darkseid.

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….
