McFarlane Toys has yet to unveil its full range of action figures based on the heroes and villains of Zack Snyder's Justice League, but we do have a first look at the Darkseid figure thanks to a new promo photo.
We've had a couple of teasing glimpses of the villain already, but this arguably gives us our best look yet at the overall character design for this take on the tyrannical rule of Apokolips, while also confirming that, yes, his armor will be blue.
Darkseid was originally supposed to appear in the theatrical version of Justice League before Snyder left the project, so fans of the iconic DC Comics villain are anxiously anticipating his feature debut in the upcoming director's cut.
In Zack Snyder's Justice League, determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes.
Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad and Darkseid and their dreadful intentions.
The "Snyder Cut" will be with us on March 18. Are you planning to check it out when it hits HBO Max?
