Among the footage in another clip posted last Thursday, fans get a quick glance of Steppenwolf, the Batmobile, and Superman clad in his black suit, shooting heat vision at someone off-screen.

The tease comes hot on the heels of new photos of Jared Leto’s Joker and his new look in Justice League and after Snyder confirmed the date for the new trailer with a glimpse at Victor Stone’s life before becoming Cyborg.
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.
Darkseid is one of the strongest villains in DC history, so there are a lot of people who are quite excited to see him with Granny Goodness and Desaad.
Darkseid is from the planet Apokolips, where he reigns as king after killing his brother and taking over on the Omega Force. Some have speculated that Snyder’s Justice League will go into the villain’s origin story, which could help set up Ava Duvernay’s upcoming New Gods movie, which will also feature Granny Goodness.
Snyder’s original 5 movie-arc for the DCEU was also said to include events like the murder of Lois Lane and of half the Justice League, with Darkseid taking control of the heartbroken Superman with the Anti-Life Equation.
