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

Zack Snyder Justice League Batman SupermanZack 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.

Would you have preferred to see Darkseid and not Steppenwolf in Justice League? Sound off in the comment section down below!

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.

From Warner Bros. Pictures and director, James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. 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.

    This is it. I am done with the Snyder Cut. The Snyder Cut we have all been waiting for isn’t even fully Zack’s vision, so what is the point? We won’t be able to see the end of it all, no OG Steppenwolf design, no black suit, no deep thought provoking plot, nothing. I am so done, it is so sad that Snyder didn’t get to make his DCEU. F Marvel, F Disney, F all the turds that can never grow up. Just F it all.

    • BADBOYBROM

      Feeling your Pain

    • Thanks to Martha whiners

    • charley newman

      Lol “deep thought provoking plot.” Thanks for the hearty laugh.

      • Human target

        still true

  • Piccolo Daiimo

    I’m still excited to see the snydercut someday

  • charley newman

    I only come to these articles to see the nine losers in the comment sections, who still care about Snyder’s fecal trash.

    • Human target

      and you’re lesser than that “fecal trash”

    • Justin Nauth

      So, your internal motivation is “glorious”.

    • Joseph Rodrigues

      Go back to your cage you retarded monkey and eat your banana’s

  • pack4life

    Would have preferred if they scrapped JL altogether if Snyder was out. Whedon and WB suits ruined it.

  • Alfred

    He didn§t leave because of his daughter, they pushed him out, the daughter was just an excuse.

    • Joseph Rodrigues

      No he stepped down when his daughter passed away you moron and he handed in his cut of 3 and half hours of LOCKED, EDITED AND COMPLETE movie that needed a small bit of polishing up just like he said at the snydercon, WB execs then saw the chance to mess with his JL and ordered reshoots to happen hence the BS know as Josstice League that came out in november.

      • Alfred

        Why call me names though? I am for SC all the way man, but the story of “him leaving to deal with the family tragedy” has been clarified. They literally fired him and used it as an excuse. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d78c357ac078032bfb58e64f620582ca913e08365140cf61b7172381c5f5f57c.png

        • Joseph Rodrigues

          Because I am fed up of bullshit rumors, and this is another one, the only people I believe are Zack,Jay Oliva and the cast members. Same thing goes to the crap about Henry leaving superman, when you have Dani Garcia his manager, jason mamoa, zachery levi, sandberg all debunking those rumors not to mention nothing from Henry or WB saying that he quit either. I am fed up of bullshit from you people.

          • Alfred

            Whta do you say when I tell you that his daughter was actually suicided by the Zionist elite, because Zack didn’t want to step down and put their propaganda in his movies…?

          • Joseph Rodrigues

            I would say that is about as accurate as it was Brandon Lee getting shot by secret chinese mafia for using martial arts in his movie.

  • Joseph Rodrigues

    The REAL Justice League movie by snyder will get released, all alternate and directors cuts of movie ALWAYS get released.
