A new teaser from Zack Snyder’s Justice League brings glimpses of the film’s antagonists, Darkseid, Joker and a first-look at Deathstroke.
We also see Batman and The Flash, the latter of whom can be seen in his new Knightmare suit, but the biggest reveal of the teaser is the first look at Joe Manganiello’s Slade Wilson/Deathstroke.
The teaser was reportedly released exclusively on Twitch, but no official YouTube channel or other social media handles of either HBO Max or the Snyder Cut have released the teaser yet. But you can watch it here –
Until now, the upcoming film’s premise suggests that the film’s center plot would remain the same, where the League tries to stop Steppenwolf, but it seems Darkseid’s presence will spawn a different storyline.
Despite the film focusing on Steppenwolf as the primary antagonist (working under his nephew Darkseid), Darkseid will have a more prominent role in The Snyder Cut than just an appearance in the first War for Earth.
Darkseid almost played a larger role in Snyder’s Justice League and subsequent DC Extended Universe films. However, after Joss Whedon assumed directorial duties during post-production and oversaw extensive reshoots, Darkseid was removed from the theatrical cut.
Over the past few days, we have received individual teasers centered on every member of the Justice League, which you can see here –

Like the theatrical release, Snyder’s Justice League follows the Justice League: Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and The Flash (Ezra Miller), as they attempt to save the world from the catastrophic threat of Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons.
The wait for Snyder’s Justice League will finally end on March 18th, 2021, when the movie will be made available to stream at HBO Max in territories the service is available in; while it will also be made available to rent or purchase digitally via different partners around the globe.
