In a recent post, an artist shared what Darkseid may have looked like in Justice League based on recently released exclusive images from DC Flims Hub.
The work in question shows a darkly-clad Darkseid with an outfit that appears to have an almost lava-based look to him. The actual image that this was inspired from came from an image that appeared to show the character in a church mural image. The artist posted the image with what he felt was an updated looked based on this new image:
Updated Darkseid concept based on the new images, and what I can make out from them. #JL #RtSC
He then went on to clarify that the full look of Darkseid was his idea alone and was not an official image:
⚠️ I feel like I always have to make this clear because some pages on Instagram take the image and run with it like it’s an official picture from Zack— no it’s not. This is a photo-bash done by me (my IG is @butterbarr, a credit would be nice) based on recently surfaced photos.

Here is plot synopsis for the film:
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, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
Justice League is now available on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD.
