Additionally, he said that Steppenwolf is “old, tired, still trying to get out of his own enslavement to Darkseid, [but] he has to keep on this line to try and take over worlds.”
This could make for a very interesting dynamic that Steppenwolf will bring to the movie. His relationship with Darkseid seems to have depth to it that we can only hope will be explored, at least briefly, on screen. This statement also makes me wonder if we will see Darkseid in the movie, or if he will be a background presence in the shadows, similar to Thanos in the MCU.
Steppenwolf will get his live-action debut in Justice League on November 17th, 2017.
