Justice League might have arrived in theaters back in 2017, but the DC blockbuster has continued to dominate pop culture. The Snyder Cut is finally becoming a reality on HBO Max this March, which will reveal Zack Snyder's original vision for the infamous movie. A full trailer is coming shortly, and every day new footage is arriving to help buoy excitement. And the latest footage reveals Darkseid's forces, including a new villain.

When Joss Whedon stepped in to complete Justice League after Zack Snyder's departure, the movie's contents were greatly changed. A number of concepts and characters were left on the cutting room floor, including the iconic DC villain Darkseid. New footage from Zack Snyder's Justice League was just released, and shows Darkseid and DeSaad, with soldiers behind them. What's more, Granny Goodness is on the other side of the villain. You check out the footage below.

Is anyone else's heart racing? The Snyder Cut has never felt more real, and each moment of new footage is a thrilling revelation about what the filmmaker is bringing with his take on Justice League. Let's break down what we're being shown in the latest tease leading up to the full trailer, including the appearance of Granny Goodness.

The above video comes to us from the official Twitter of Zack Snyder's Justice League. The clip opens on the two forces that are set to collide in the upcoming streaming event. The Justice League (sans black suit Superman) exit a vehicle, while we're also shown the harsh reality of Darkseid's home world. Apokolips is an iconic and unforgiving aspect of DC lore, and it's exciting to see it come to life. That's when we get a new glimpse at Darkseid himself, with fellow newcomers DeSaad and Granny Goodness by his side.

After that the footage comes in quick glances, and teases the action and spectacle of the Snyder Cut. While it would no doubt be awesome to see on the big screen, fans will be able to watch Zack Snyder's Justice League from the comfort of their homes. The clip show Batman fighting off Parademons, as well a Ezra Miller's Flash moving at the speed of light.

The Snyder Cut will be available exclusively on HBO Max. You can use this link to sign up for the streaming service.

Darkseid's inclusion is one of the many exciting concepts that moviegoers can't wait to see play out in The Snyder Cut. The movie's theatrical cut left him on the cutting room floor, with Steppenwolf instead being the primary antagonist. Ciarán Hinds's character is still expected in Zack Snyder's Justice League, but he'll have a massively different appearance.

The full trailer for the Snyder Cut is expected in just a few days time, and is expected to break the internet upon its release. Afterward we'll have just one more month until the fabled project finally hits the masses. We'll just have to wait and see if it manages to change the course of the DCEU proper in the process.

Zack Snyder's Justice League is expected to hit HBO Max on March 18th. In the meantime, check out our 2021 release list to plan your next movie experience.
