Steppenwolf, our villain from Justice League, has up until this point been mostly revealed to us through merchandise like toys and LEGO sets. The SDCC trailer had some glimpses as well, and now we have our best look yet at a clear shot of his face from the film, where he is played by Ciarán Hinds. And as usual, it is from a piece of tie-in merchandise.
Obviously the first thing you notice is the pretty epic butt chin he is sporting here. I mean, that's pretty much the craziest butt chin I have ever seen. It is so perfectly proportioned, so well sculpted. Anyway… this mask is actually really cool looking. I am starting to wonder if Steppenwolf is going to just look like a silver blob up there on screen. What the mask really nails however is the eyes. They look insanely life-like and creepy. Anyone wearing this on Halloween will simultaneously frighten someone and cause them to start laughing uncontrollably.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
You could also try to wear the Steppenwolf mask to the theater when you go see the film, but I am pretty sure they will frown upon that. So, maybe leave this one at home. You will have to find another way to honor the Apokolips general.
Justice League will bring the butt chin thunder in theaters on November 17.
