“Joe’s character in this movie when we find him clearly he and Batman have struck some sort of a deal and they have a bit of a partnership,” Snyder said. “There’s a bigger enemy, I guess.”From there, the teaser cuts between different Justice League heroes like Superman, Aquaman, and Cyborg before showing what appears to be an entire planet being devoured or destroyed in some way — presumably by way of Darkseid.
The teaser finishes with a Darkseid that looks quite different from the one at the beginning of the trailer. This Darkseid is all-black with embers erupting ever so lightly out of him. Something tells us that this is a powered-up Darkseid, but it’s anyone’s guess. We’ll learn more about what’s going on with Darkseid in that scene, and what Batman and Deathstroke’s team-up looks like, when Zack Snyder’s Justice League is released to theaters and HBO Max on March 18.
