Zack Snyder revealed a new Justice League teaser giving Steppenwolf the spotlight as he works for Darkseid in overthrowing the Earth.
Steppenwolf is coming for the Justice League – and a new teaser offers a look at his brutal attack in the upcoming film. The character was heavily criticized following the theatrical cut of the film, with many fans and critics slamming the writing of the villain his visual design. But this time around, he’s got a much more intimidating look and he also seems to be a lot more vicious in his assault on the planet. We’ve already seen a brief clip of Steppenwolf fighting the Amazons – and this teaser promises more of the same violence.
Zack Snyder took to Twitter to share the new Steppenwolf teaser, which shows the villain commanding several Parademons as they haul a few Atlantean soldiers out of the ocean. It looks to be the same scene that a stuntman on the film said was cut by Warner Bros. as it was too violent for the theatrical cut. The new footage also shows Darkseid speaking to Steppenwolf through the Motherbox, so it looks as if the overarching villain will have a presence scattered throughout the film. Watch the new Justice League teaser below.

Here is the official synopsis for the Zack 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.
