There have been rumours for a while that Darkseid is going to be in the new Justice League: Snyder Cut that is coming to HBO Max in 2021. Until now, it was just speculation.
However, recently Zack Snyder tweeted out a teaser from the movie. And yes, Darkseid is confirmed.
Zack Snyder originally stepped away from the Justice League after the death of his daughter. This led to Warner brothers bringing in Avengers director Joss Whedon to wrap up the project.
After the poor reception that the movie received, fans, actors and Zack Snyder himself have been campaigning for the release of a Snyder Cut. A version of the movie that is more true to the director’s vision.
“I want to thank HBO Max and Warner Brothers for this brave gesture of supporting artists and allowing their true visions to be realized. Also a special thank you to all of those involved in the SnyderCut movement for making this a reality,” Zack Snyder said after the news of the movie’s re-release was announced earlier this year.
