We can get a good idea as to what Ray Porter could have looked like as Darkseid in Zack Snyder’s Justice League thanks to this incredible new image.
Zack Snyder took to Vero last weekend, revealing how the villainous Darkseid appeared in his cut of Justice League. Earlier this year, Zack Snyder himself confirmed the “Snyder Cut” does indeed exist, along with revealing details regarding his original plans for Justice League. The director was planning to feature a Young Darkseid battling against Ares and the other Greek Gods during the first invasion of Earth. Ares actor Nick McKinless also revealed the film originally featured a fight scene between Ares and the young Darkseid. In addition, Zack Snyder’s intentions also included Darkseid killing Lois Lane and half of the Justice League, which would have resulted in Henry Cavill’s Superman succumbing to the Anti-Life Equation over his five-film arc for the DCEU.
As for who played Darkseid, Zack Snyder seemingly revealed he had cast Ray Porter in the role. The actor teased his voice for the DC villain earlier this week after Zack Snyder revealed our first look at how Darkseid originally appeared in Justice League. Although we finally got our first look at Darkseid’s design for Justice League, after almost two years since the film’s release, the image did not offer a close-up look at how Ray Porter would have looked as the big-bad. Thanks to this new image below, DC fans get a good idea at how Ray Porter could have appeared as Darkseid in Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League.

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.
