Even though Justice League won’t hit us until November of this year, the latest trailer has most of the comic book community looking forward to seeing how Warner Bros. Pictures & DC handle bringing the league together on the big screen. The big villain of the film is confirmed to be Steppenwolf, one of the New Gods & uncle to Darkseid. Steppenwolf is also a member of Darkseid’s Elite. We were teased with his appearance at the end of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice film, but his look in that film was more alien than human in appearance. Steppenwolf will be played by Ciarán Hinds.
Lego is releasing a set that will tie-in to the Justice League film. The set is called “Nightcrawler Tunnel Attack”, “Battle of Atlantis” & the “Flying Fox Batmobile Airlift Attack.” Some images were released that give us a clear look at Steppenwolf. Take a look at the images below.
Justice League will be directed by Zack Snyder & written by Chris Terrio. The film stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Willem Dafoe, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, & Ciarán Hinds. The film will hit theaters on November 17, 2017.
Months after the events of Batman v Superman, Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince assemble a team of metahumans to face the catastrophic threat ofSteppenwolf and their Parademons who are on the hunt for three Mother Boxes on Earth.
