The mystery behind who the horned villain was in the Batman v Superman deleted scene caused an important stir on the future events following BvS and Justice League. It was confirmed awhile back that Steppenwolf (seen above) would be the Justice League villain we will see next. As it’s been well documented, the DC Extended Universe has had it’s issues with poorly conceived stories with it’s last two films (BvS, Suicide Squad), but there is one thing DC/Warner Brothers has done flawlessly and that is cast their characters.
We don’t know the plot details of the film yet and the film doesn’t come out until late next year, but it should be interesting to see how they portray Steppenwolf and his relationship with the ultra villain of DC, Darkseid. We see a glimpse of what might be thanks the “Knightmare” sequence in Batman v Superman which we can only imagine is Darkseid and Steppenwolf causing the destruction that we may see next year.
Hinds will play Steppenwolf via motion capture technology which is actually good news assuming Steppenwolf will have a presence similar to Ultron or a Thanos whom Josh Brolin is cast to play over at Marvel.
We last saw Jesse Eisenberg’s now bald Lex Luthor going insane in his cell thanks to what are called Mother Boxes. Transportation devices from the planet of Apokolips, the home of Steppenwolf. It’s curious now to see what the overall design will be since the comics make him appear as a man while the film made him more demon like. We will have to wait and see.
