Since its announcement, Zack Snyder’s Justice League has been constantly in news. Now, another new TV spot for the film is doing rounds, showing Darkseid using his Omega Beams. Ever since Zack Snyder started teasing about his cut of the 2017 film, fans have been discussing how different will it be from the theatrical cut. This includes different storylines and character designs and other characters which were originally cut out. While Snyder has already teased Superman wearing his black suit, fans can’t wait to see what else is in store.
Darkseid Seen Using Omega Beams In Snyder’s Cut
We all know that Darkseid is not the main villain in Justice League but Snyder did have some plans of introducing him in some capacity. Since its release, Snyder has often teased about Darkseid’s role and as we know, the film’s version is the young version of the villain known as Uxas and will lead the invasion featured in the history sequence. The footage revealed from the film has teased him on Apokolips speaking to Steppenwolf, the original villain of Justice League.
A new spot for the film shared by a user called on Twitter features Darkseid using his Omega Beams around the 19-20 second mark in the video. As fans must know, the Omega Beams are known to draw their power from the Omega Effect – which also happens to be the source of his power. This beam can destroy any target by locking it onto it. These beams are very powerful are readers can see them below in an underwater sequence showing Darkseid. Here’s the footage shared:

While this is not the first time fans are seeing the Omega Beams, this new footage will surely spark discussions among fans as it puts Darkseid in an all-new location. Earlier, fans have seen him on Apokolips and later, on a decimated part of Earth which he tries to conquer but this scene captures the villain fighting underwater which might mean that he’s in Atlantis. This means that there’s more to Darkseid’s role in the film and fans may expect to see more of him. This may also mean that it’s all part of the much bigger history lesson sequence than fans may have thought.
What’s more in store?
However, with this latest footage, the anticipation for Snyder’s cut will continue to grow. This version will be an R-rated, four-hour-long film that will drop on HBO Max in a few days. And if we are still seeing new leaked footage of Darkseid and the film’s final act, this can mean that there’s a lot more in store than fans have anticipated.
