Zack Snyder reveals the complete look at Darkseid, still in his Uxas form, in his version of Justice League. A new close-up photo posted by Snyder gives fans their clearest look yet at Darkseid.
The image, which Snyder posted on social media platform Vero, appeared on Reddit. The photo, which is in black-and-white, doesn’t look entirely finished and refers to the character by his birth name, Uxas, indicating that it’s a younger version of the villain.
Unlike most of Snyder’s other posts about Justice League, this one does not appear to be an official still from the Snyder cut or a piece of concept art. While it’s a very detailed model, the CGI for this shot doesn’t appear to be complete. There’s still work that needs to be done on the scene no matter what, meaning this is likely an aspect of the film that Snyder would have to finish if part of the Snyder Cut.
While Justice League ultimately earned disappointing box office totals and was met with mixed critical reviews, Snyder’s aborted sequel to the film, Justice League 2, was originally supposed to be release this year. By all accounts, Darkseid would’ve played a major role in that movie after being first introduced in Justice League.
