The Justice League movie has found its Steppenwolf! After it was revealed that Steppenwolf was indeed the villain of 2017’s Justice League, many wondered who would play the New God of Apokolips and now we finally have the answer. The Wrap reports that Steppenwolf will be played by Game of Thrones star Ciaran Hinds.
Ciaran Hinds is known for his very unlikeable Game of Thrones character Mance Rayder, a.k.a. the King-Beyond-the-Wall, and he’ll now get to join the DC Extended Universe as the villainous Steppenwolf. The actor recently wrapped his motion-capture role for Justice League and the part will be very much like Thanos, a CGI alien behemoth.

Here’s the official synopsis for the Justice League movie:
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 is set to star Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Vulko and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon. Justice League hits theaters on November 17, 2017!
