‘Justice League’: Zack Snyder Confirms ‘Batman v Superman’s Steppenwolf Design Never Appeared In Film

Zack Snyder just confirmed what fans already suspected involving his version of Justice League‘s main villain Steppenwolf.

Even though Justice League was released back in 2017, details of the now infamous Zack Snyder Cut are still surfacing. This time around, we’ve found some details about Justice League‘s main villain Steppenwolf. As you might remember, we caught a glimpse of Steppenwolf during a deleted scene in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice when Lex Luthor was attempting to retrieve the Mother Box from the Kryptonian ship. Many fans were quick to notice that this version didn’t quite match the Steppenwolf we saw in Justice League. So what happened? Did Zack Snyder change how Steppenwolf look between both films?

It was recently revealed that Zack Snyder didn’t have a Steppenwolf design for Justice League. Nowadays, Zack Snyder uses his social media profile on Vero to engage with fans and one eager fan took it upon himself to ask him if the director could share with his Steppenwolf design:

“Sir, can you post a shot of your Steppenwolf design in JL? Or at least give us a hint if your Steppenwolf in JL looks like one shown in BvS, or was that design scrapped during production and exists only as a concept?”

Zack Snyder promptly answered that his design of Steppenwolf was only featured in Batman v Superman, unfortunately:

“sadly only in BvS”

What really happened is that Steppenwolf was never meant by Zack Snyder to have such a big role in Justice League. In Zack Snyder’s Justice League cut Darkseid was going to have an even bigger role than the one he had in Joss Whedon’s cut. Darkseid was only named by Steppenwolf during a small scene but in the Zack Snyder cut he was actually going to be the big bad for Justice League and any subsequent Justice League films that followed. At least that was Zack Snyder’s plan. Joss Whedon and Warner Bros., unfortunately, decided to give the main villain role to Steppenwolf. That’s why Zack Snyder never had a Steppenwolf design for Justice League.

Zack Snyder exited Justice League before the film was finished in order to take care of his family after his daughter sadly committed suicide. Joss Whedon was in charge of finishing the project but changed Zack Snyder’s tone in the movie altogether. Since Justice League came out, fans have been clamoring for DC and Warner Bros. to release Zack Snyder’s cut in order to see what the director originally intended for the heroes in the film.

Warner Bros. and DC Films have many projects currently being developed including The Batman, The Flash standalone film, Green Lantern Corps, Black Adam, Supergirl, New Gods, and Nightwing.

The DCEU continues this month with Aquaman which is now playing and will be followed by Shazam! on April 5, 2019, Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) on February 7, 2020, and Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, 2020. A standalone Joker film set outside of the DC Films universe starring Joaquin Phoenix as the Clown Prince of Crime is also set to hit theaters October 4, 2019.

Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm / Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Ludi Lin as Captain Murk, and Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry.

The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.
