In just a few months, Justice League will finally make its way into theaters, and DC Comics diehards are eager to see the film’s line-up in action. Heroes such as Batman, Aquaman, and Wonder Woman will make their stand against the villain Steppenwolf when the latter threatens to destroy the planet. Ciaran Hinds is the actor who will be bringing the baddie to life through a heavy dose of CGI, and fans are still waiting to get their first-look at the character. Now, fans can get just a taste of what the villain will look like thanks to the LEGO sets associated to Justice League.
Thanks to Twitter user @_DCWorld, fans can see what Steppenwolf will look like in LEGO form. Packaging for Justice League’s various LEGO sets were shared online. The box for the film’s Flying Fox kit shows a minifig of Steppenwolf, and the character is shown with some ornate armor. The villain’s headgear looks impressive with its horned limbs, and Steppenwolf can be seen toting a massive battle axe to boot. You can check out the image below.
As for how Steppenwolf will be brought to life, Hinds has said CGI will play a big role in creating the character. In an interview with Independent UK, the actor said, “Basically they’re going to construct something, digitally, and then they will use my eyes and mouth.”
The villain won’t be a spry as some of the DC Extended Universe’s other baddies. Hinds took a moment to describe the villain and said his character is a tired one. "He’s old, tired, still trying to get out of his own enslavement to Darkseid, [but] he has to keep on this line to try and take over worlds,” he explained.
