On the launch day for HBO Max in the US, Zack Snyder has shared a color image of Darkseid as he’ll appear in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Previously he’s shared black and white images of Darkseid from early concept/vfx work, so this shot is something new:

Darkseid will play a bigger role in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, as he was meant to be the overall villain the movie was building to for the sequels. He was setup in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice in the “Knightmare” future where Batman sees a vision of the future where Darkseid won. That scene showed a giant omega carved into the ground, setting up Darkseid.
We’ll now see him on screen when Zack Snyder’s Justice League hits HBO Max sometime in 2021.
