Heroic Hollywood is reporting that the connection between Steppenwolf and Darkseid will be different from the comics in the upcoming Justice League film.
In the comic books, Steppenwolf is a member of Darkseid’s Elite, leads the military of Apokolips and is also Darkseid’s uncle.
In an interview with Geek Magazine, it was revealed that this connection won’t be the same, there will be a role exchange.
“In Justice League, Batman and Wonder Woman, following Superman’s death in battling Doomsday, is intent on bringing together a team to take on Steppenwolf. This new menace is the nephew to Darkseid of Apokolips (presumably the big bad of the second JL adventure). Steppenwolf is on Earth to retrieve three Mother Boxes, one of which is now a part of Cyborg.”
These sort of changes aren’t really uncommon when movies jump from print to screen, but changes in the dynamics are expected.
