“The uncle of the universe’s greatest villain, Darkseid, and a member of his elite force, Steppenwolf survived a battle with Doomsday. That should tell you just how powerful he is. Aside from his strength and near-immortality, he’s also an expert tactician and wields a vicious electro-axe that can cut through just about anything.

“Steppenwolf’s primary role is as the leader of the parademons, the storm troopers who seek to destroy in the name of Darkseid. His primary mission is to serve his nephew, and his status as the main villain in Justice League suggests the scope of the threat facing Earth, as well as the inevitable appearance of Darkseid himself.

“Irish star Ciaran Hinds plays the role in the movie, though he will appear through the use of motion-capture technology. According to the actor, in the film, Steppenwolf is old, tired, and trying desperately to get out from under his servitude to his nephew.”

Dark Tower Reboot Happening? – The “Dark Tower” film was largely a failure, and it was something that really disrupted the plans for the franchise.

Stephen King spoke recently about the failure of him of his more iconic works, and here’s what he said about the tv series;

They want new voices and different ways of telling stories…All the work to do with actors, all the rescripting stuff in the moment — that’s what I want to do, really. I’m always going to leave the CG stuff up to someone else.

Despite leaning heavily on The Hulk in the upcoming films, no solo outing is planned. When asked if a Hulk film will ever happen, Kevin Feige responded with;

I think that back and forth continues, and I don’t know if it will ever happen.

Jonah Jameson find out Spider-Man’s secret identity in the near future. Rumors have circulated that the Marvel One-Shots will return in the near future.
