Steppenwolf is the Confirmed Justice League Movie villain and more
Today has been a DC extended universe day as news about the upcoming Justice League movie and more is constantly rolling in. Seems to be the right timing since the BvS Blu Ray Ultimate Edition is soon for release. To kick things off with the group of DCEU news, it has been confirmed that Steppenwolf will be the villain in Justice League. For those of you who may not know who Steppenwolf is, he is Darkseid’s uncle. Darkseid was at first thought to be the villain to first face off against the Justice League. Earlier this year soon after the release of BvS, there was a deleted scene that Warner Brother released which seems to show Lex Luthor talking to Steppenwolf as he is showing him the mother box cubes. Stephenwolf, not being someone of the familiarity of villains for the Justice League to casual fans, it will be interesting to see how the audience will react this.
The studio has also dropped the Justice League movie logo today which a lot of fans seem to be excited about. Nothing about it in my opinion jumps out that really excites me, but its great to see that the DCEU is making moves towards a good directions as they are working on and completing several films.
DCEU may be taking notes from fans and Marvel as the studio is saying that BvS will probably the darkest movie in the DCEU as they are looking to add more humor into their stories, adding a lighter tone for the audience, as that was a casual complaint for movie going fans who have seen BvS.
Do you think the DCEU should stick to its dark tone or get a little lighter for fans? (Let me know in the comments below).
BvS Blu Ray is set to release July 19th and Justice League is set to release November 17, 2017 and for more awesome news on entertainment, make sure to stay tuned to MFST.
