‘Justice League:’ Fan Translates Text On Zack Snyder’s Darkseid Post

With each subsequent post he shares or question he answers when speaking with fans on Vero, Zack Snyder seems to be slowly piecing together a puzzle that many hope would culminate in his original vision of Justice League instead of the theatrical version that moviegoers saw last year. And Snyder himself has remarked on things in the theatrical version that weren’t in his cut, such as the Russian family or Alfred bringing Lois to Heroes Park. Indeed, Justice League appears to be a tale of two visions. But let’s take a step back and talk about Darkseid.

Just this past Sunday, Zack Snyder took to Vero to share an image of the wall that Diana was looking at in his take of Justice League. The image, showing Darkseid, also contained some text in Greek. So one user on Reddit took it upon themselves to translate the text, which read “ΣΚΟΤΟΗΔΗΣ ΔΑΡΚΣΕΙΔΟΣ,” and decipher it. It’s pronounced “Skotoithis Tharkseithos,” but in English, that translates to “Killer” and “Darkseid.” So this would have no doubt been a part of the history lesson that was pretty much glossed over in the theatrical version. Here, have a look at the translation in the post below.

NEWS: "NEWS" I just realised that the words in this picture are written in Ancient Greek so, as a Greek, I can understand them. It says ΣΚΟΤΟΗΔΗΣ ΔΑΡΚΣΕΙΔΟΣ which is pronounced "Skotoithis Tharkseithos". The first word means Killer and the other one obviously Darkseid from DC_Cinematic

While Warner Bros. no doubt reacted to the critical reception to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and flexed its editorial control to drastically alter the original visions for both Justice League and Suicide Squad, the long-term ramifications seem to have done more harm than good in the eyes of fans and even audiences. After all, Justice League wasn’t the box office that executives hoped it would be with Joss Whedon making his umpteenth changes. Nor did it earn any goodwill from fans who enjoyed the tone taken with these films starting with Man of Steel.

What was seen as damage control ended up leading to Justice League being a turkey. At least, this version of it. And it’s been over a year since that film hit theaters, and both fans and Zack Snyder himself still hope to see his original vision brought to light. If and when that happens remains to be seen, but between Snyder’s Vero posts, the fans continuing to back him, and the many hints, images, and revelations that have come out as far back as Justice League’s first weekend in theaters, a bell indeed cannot be unrung.

Justice League is now available on Digital HD, 4K, Blu-Ray, and DVD.
