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.
