Justice League Movie Finds Actor to Play Bad Guy Steppenwolf

Ciaran Hinds will play the CG character, said to be "upgraded" since his appearance in a BvS deleted scene.


According to a new report, Ciaran Hinds (Game of Thrones, Munich) will play the evil Steppenwolf in the upcoming DC Comics movie Justice League.

Steppenwolf is a motion-capture character, not unlike Thanos (played by Josh Brolin) in Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War. Sources told The Wrap that "Steppenwolf's look will be upgraded" from the first time we saw the character in a Batman v Superman deleted scene.
