If you weren’t aware, director Zack Snyder frequents the social media site, Vero. He frequently posts behind-the-scenes images of films he has worked on, most recently of 2017s Justice League.
Snyder’s most recent post reveals a new look at an iconic villain that, at one time, was set to appear in last years DC blockbuster. You can check out the post below:
That is, of course, Darkseid, who was cut from Justice League after Joss Whedon took over at the helm. The caption references a scene in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice where Lex Luthor warns Batman of an impending threat, informing him that “the bells have rung, they cannot be unrung.”
Darkseid was going to play a pivotal role in the DCEU when Justice League was still a two-part film. It was widely reported that the villain would make some sort of cameo in the first film before becoming the main antagonist in the second. Those plans were eventually scrapped following the shake-up at Warner Brothers.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League is available on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital
