Darkseid’s servant DeSaad gets the spotlight in the newly released concept art from Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
One of the biggest selling points of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, aside from seeing the director’s original vision for the film, was the addition of brand new characters like DeSaad and Darkseid. Of course, Steppenwolf got a major overhaul too with a completely fresh suit of spiky armor that shifted and moved around the antagonist. But new concept art reveals a better look at DeSaad when he’s not wearing the hood and bulky armor on Apokolips.
Notable concept artist Jerad S. Marantz took to Instagram to show off his DeSaad designs, revealing an intimidating vision of the Apokoliptian villain. Perhaps it’s the white eyes or the snarling expression, but DeSaad comes across much more demonic and alien here without the rest of his costume. The artist also explained that his original look was a little more deformed but Zack Snyder and the production team preferred a subtle version. Take a look at the Desaad concept art for Justice League below.

Here is the official synopsis for the Snyder Cut:
“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.”
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
