Zack Snyder reveals Darkseid in JL teaser

Zack Snyder recently posted an 18-second teaser for Zach Snyder’s Justice League along with the promise that we will be treated to a “full length” trailer in just 3 days as a Valentine’s Day gift to fans. Oh, and there’s Darkseid.

Even though this teaser is meager in length, there is a wealth of information being shared, such as villain Steppenwolf using his axe to leave a mark on Earth, as well as shots of the Batmobile and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) in action. The most notable tease here is a shot of a pretty villainous looking Superman sporting his menacing black costume.

In this super fast teaser, we are unable to discern if Superman (Henry Cavill) is in control of himself or under the control of Darkseid.  Watch below:

At the time of this writing, Snyder dropped a second teaser – this one revealing the tyrannical ruler of Apokolips, Darkseid.

This is not Uxas, (his new god persona before the transformation) as we have seen before in other footage. This is actually a brief glimpse of Darkseid with armor and helmet.

The big bad was originally supposed to appear in the theatrical version of Justice League before Snyder left the project, so we are anxiously anticipating his feature debut.

Here, Darkseid is shown walking towards the camera with DeSaad to his right. Wait, is that Granny Goodness on his left? Watch below:

We’ll just have to wait and see what happens in the full trailer for Zack Snyder’s Justice League and then wait until March to see the completed 4-hour feature to have all our questions answered. 

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.
