The DC Extended Universe has kicked off since the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the second film in the DC franchise which will be followed by David Ayer’s Suicide Squad when it comes out on August 5 and then Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman which comes out next summer. But next year is also going to feature the assembling of DC’s Justice League as Zack Snyder is currently shooting Justice League: Part 1 in London. While we know many of the heroes that will be showing up in the film, we have yet to learn who the actual big bad is going to be, however a new rumor may have given us some insight to who it could be.
Devin Faraci of Birth Movies Death is reporting that Darkseid is in fact not the big villain that the Justice League is going up against as it will be someone that was featured in a deleted scene of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. According to Faraci, we will be seeing Steppenwolf facing the titans of the DC Universe in the first Justice League film. He also goes on to say that while Darkseid is in the film at the end, but isn’t expected to have a large role until Justice League: Part 2 perhaps. You can check out that deleted scene with Steppenwolf below and make sure to let us know in the comments below what you think of this rumor!
Justice League: Part One, starring Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry/Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Victor Stone/Cyborg, Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/The Flash, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner James Gordon and Willem Dafoe, opens in theaters on November 17, 2017.
