The most feared DC Universe villain Darkseid was first hinted for the DCEU in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. However, the presence of the character in Justice League became suspicious after the studio revealed Steppenwolf as the antagonist in Zack Snyder’s film.
Fans were about to lose hope, but the ultimate edition of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice revealed Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor teasing the invasion from Apokolips. Since then, fans have been searching for more easter eggs and secret references linking to Darkseid.
Recently, a user on Reddit submitted a soundtrack from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Users are debating if the track could in fact be the theme of Darkseid in Justice League.
The background score for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was co-composed by Junkie XL along with Hans Zimmer. Junkie XL is currently the main composer for Justice League after Zimmer announced his retirement from producing music for comic book movies.
The user on Reddit also pointed out that the “theme” is similar to the track from DC animated series “Justice League: War.” While fans continue to speculate, neither studio nor Junkie XL has confirmed it yet. Furthermore, the presence of Darkseid remains a mystery.
Currently, DC fans are expecting Warner Bros. to reveal the actor cast to play as Steppenwolf in Zack Snyder’s film.
Justice League will be released on November 17, 2017. Recently, it has been hinted that Joe Manganiello’s Deathstroke will have a cameo in the film as well.
