Early concept art from Zack Snyder’s Justice League shows off a young Darkseid design.
One of the best decisions made in Zack Snyder’s Justice League was introducing Darkseid as the looming big bad. While his future in the DC Extended Universe is uncertain, Justice League did a brilliant job of showing off just how menacing the Apokolips ruler is in a short amount of time. First introduced to audiences in the history sequence on Earth, Darkseid’s look in the Zack Snyder film was menacing and hulking, making him a worthy foe for the tribes of Men, Atlanteans, and Amazonians.
In the final film, Darkseid didn’t age considerably since the history sequence. However, concept art shows Darkseid looking much younger without his helmet in the early sequence from Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

Here is the synopsis for Zack Snyder’s Justice League:
“In ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE, determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad and Darkseid and their dreadful intentions.”
