Darkseid is the most powerful character villain in the DC Universe; he's also the most evil as he seeks to rule the universe. Because of this, fans were wondering if he would be the main villain in the first Justice League movie, but new information has claimed this will not be the case.
Devin Faraci from BadassDigest posted a new article asking the question, who is Star Lord's father. For those who are unaware, Star Lord is Peter Quill from Guardians of the Galaxy, and at the end of the movie, it was revealed that he's only half Terran, and his father is something else, something ancient.
But enough of that, we're here to talk about Darkseid, the first of the New Gods.
During Faraci's long talk about Star Lord and The Eternals, he mentioned that Marvel would likely bring The Eternals on-screen in 2017 in Guardians of the Galaxy 2. On the other hand, DC will likely bring Darkseid on the big screen when Justice League 2 comes around according to his sources, but we have no idea when that will be.
"My sources tell me not to expect Darkseid in the DC movieverse until Justice League 2, so that means a Guardians 2 in 2017 would definitely have the Eternals beating the New Gods to big screens," said Faraci.
We seriously believed that Darkseid would have been the main villain in the first Justice League movie that is expected to come after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. However, it would definitely make sense of DC to keep the New Gods behind the scenes for a while until the overall universe has come full circle on the big screen.
It's interesting that Marvel managed to bring Thanos to the big screen before DC could bring its own counterpart to the big screen. Why? Well, Thanos is practically a rip-off of Darkseid, heck, several Marvel comic-book characters are copies of DC characters.
Seeing Darkseid on the big screen for the first time should be a treat for DC fans. We must admit that Thanos' first outing in Guardians of the Galaxy wasn't particularly interesting, or maybe it's because of the movie's campy persona.
