The Snydercut was everything a DC fan wanted and asked for but Darkseid forgetting Earth has become an issue in the past. Thankfully, Ray Porter explained it all.
The actor who portrayed Darkseid in Zack Snyder’s Justice League has given us the answer to why the character forgot Earth after his initial invasion.
Speaking with FandomWire, Ray Porter said that Darkseid is an old being who turned thousands of worlds to dust looking for the anti-life equation.
He added, “Consider the fact that he’s turned a hundred thousand worlds to dust, it was so long ago that he found this equation, and then it was taken from him in battle and he always wanted to ‘re-find’ it. We are talking so many thousands of years, so many planets, universes, and possible Earths.”
He also said, “Uxas, the person who became Darkseid has also changed so much in that long time span.”
He added, “So, for someone whose knowledge spans so much, maybe the knowledge got lost in the vastness that it was on this Earth in particular. And then, Steppenwolf, of all people, approaches him about this.”
With the multiverse at play this early in the DCEU, This universe has a lot of potential but WB said NO.
In Zack Snyder’s vision, Darkseid is clearly the driving force and is the main threat to the League.
Right now, Warner Bros. canceled the new gods film which was supposed to introduce Darkseid properly.
Maybe, We’ll see him in the future but there’s no official word about him.
