    Eh. I bet we're about to DCCU get real freaking weird. Like if they're are those Lovecraft ooze things in Suicide Squad, I wouldn't be surprised to see a Brainiac type character show up.

    (also does Goyer have any part in the future DCCU? Kinda thought BvS was it, and that it was mostly rewritten when Affleck joined)

    If I had money, I'd also wager that the shot in the trailer of WW blocking the lasers with her shield is the first costumed appearance of her as WW in the movie

    I've never really dug Darkseid

    I liked the big DCAU fight where Superman finally stops holding back and beats the piss out him, but they've already kind of covered the "Superman uses his powers without much restraint" thing in the DC movies

    I find Thanos more interesting than Darkseid when he's not being a straight up ooga booga villain. When he's scheming or reluctantly aiding in the defense of the universe, he's much more entertaining.

    Thanos needs his ridiculous over the top floating chair like some kind of ostentatious space Trump.

    Darkseid? He's a real cold space nihilist. You know what he sits in?

    Darkseid probably is the only cosmic despot who'd steal the beer out of your fridge too.

    Seriously though, how much free time does Darkseid have than he can just wait for people on thier armchairs? It's like, you're trying to destroy the very concept of free will, don't you have better things to do with your time?

    I still think that Braniac would have made a better villain for MoS. It's even got the same Clark has to sever the last connection to his homeworld thing going on. Plus as an AI he can always come back later on and need a team up to take down.

    This is mostly based on that one Superman TAS episode where braniac lands and offers to trade tech with the government but is really just stealing all the knowledge before blowing the planet. Then Superman has to team up with Luthor of all people to stop him.

    I know Brainiac was only Kryptonian in the DCAU but that's still my favorite interpretation of Brainiac.

    I bet in the movies they'd make him just built by Luthor though.

    As a clone of Zod.

    "Superman! You may have defeated Doomsday and Bizarro. But I have enhanced this clone's intelligence with cybernetic implants recovered from the Kryptonian ship. He's going to be a real brainiac!"

    Darkseid is probably second to Doctor Doom for me as far as supervillains go

    Dude's just evil incarnate! Like, literally that!

    To be honest, I find just "evil incarnate" to be really boring outside of very specific stories that take advantage of that sort of allegory. A true "force of nature" villain can be fun, but Darkseid can monologue, which undermines that, to me.

    What's the point of elevating yourself to be an immortal God-King of your planet if you can't delegate a bit here and there while you hunt out a comfy chair for use in your inquisition?

    HA!

    Free will is an illusion destroying itself. Darkseid can take as much time as he wants picking out a comfy chair.

    that would sound kinda like a bad anime or a bad porn. the venn diagram on that probably even overlaps.
