The upcoming movie Zack Snyder
's Justice League
is going to be a four-hour-plus affair. That's a lot of time to spend on one story. Aside from featuring the main seven members of the Justice League
, the film will also feature many villains, chief among them being Darkseid, Steppenwolf
, Deathstroke, and Joker. During IGN
Fan Fest, Snyder weighed in on how the four villains will fit into the larger narrative, starting with the "complicated" relationship between Darkseid and Steppenwolf.
"For sure the Steppenwolf Darkseid relationship is very complicated. I'm not going to give it away, but there is a dynamic between the two of them. Some things happened in the past. There is a bunch of issues between them and so yeah I think that all plays out. So yes, the answer is there is quite a complex relationship there."
In the comics, Darkseid is the god-king of the planet Apokolips.
