Earlier today, the new Justice League trailer dropped and gave us our first real glimpse of what to expect from the upcoming movie. The trailer also gave us our first look at the villain Steppenwolf, who will be played by Game of Thrones alum, Ciaran Hinds.
In the comics, Steppenwolf is the uncle of Darkseid and one of the only ones to have survived Doomsday before making his way to Earth. Since Doomsday made his appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Steppenwolf’s origin could very well stem from that. How he’ll ultimately be introduced in the Justice League movie, however, is still unclear. Hinds will appear in the movie in a motion capture role for the character.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Amber Heard as Mera, J.K. Simmons as Jim Gordon, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Julian Lewis Jones, and Willem Dafoe are also set to appear.
Justice League will be in theaters November 17, 2017.
