Steppenwolf’s original design may return for Zack Snyder’s Justice League!
The theatrical version of Justice League was very different from Zack Snyder’s original vision for the film. According to the director, we only got to see a fraction of what he shot. One of the major changes to Justice League was Steppenwolf’s design. The villain was originally more frightening and resembled how he looked during his brief cameo at the end of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Warner Bros. wanted to market the film towards children and ultimately changed his design to the more family friendly version we see in the image above.
Now that Snyder is getting to finish his version of Justice League, a fan asked if we would get the original Steppenwolf design this time around, to which the director replied with an emoji. Snyder’s coyness on the subject gives us the feeling that we’re going to see a lot of his original designs in his version of the film. You can check out the interaction between Zack Snyder and the fan below.

Here’s the official synopsis for Zack Snyder’s Justice League:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, the film 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.
