Darkseid, as seen in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, gets a stunning new Prime 1 Studio statue.
Nearly four years after the release of the theatrical cut, Zack Snyder’s Justice League finally premiered on HBO Max. Fans not only got a chance to see the director finally fulfill his creative vision, but also saw some characters absent from the theatrical cut restored into the director’s cut. One of those characters was the beloved villain Darkseid, played by Ray Porter.
Response to the design of Darkseid as well as Ray Porter’s voice performance was well-received by fans, leaving many wishing that Zack Snyder’s vision for two sequels would come into fruition just to see more of Darkseid in the future. Although Darkseid’s cinematic future remains uncertain, fans can add this incredibly detailed new sculpture from Prime 1 Studio to their collection of DC Extended Universe statues:

In the Snyder Cut, Darkseid was set up to be the ultimate antagonist for the Justice League to face off against in Zack Snyder’s proposed sequels. The character was also expected to appear in the now-shelved New Gods film from writer/director Ava DuVernay (Selma; When They See Us).
