Darkseid Was Going to Be Played by Ray Porter in JUSTICE LEAGUE
Zack Snyder’s full vision for Justice League seems to be coming clearer and clearer as the days go by. We know that Darkseid was supposed to make an appearance in the film, thanks to details revealed by Snyder and Kevin Smith, and now we know who would’ve played the big bad. According to Snyder Darkseid would’ve been played by Ray Porter.
The filmmaker shared a photo of Ray Porter on social media, along with the following caption, “He’s the man. For Darkseid.”
Porter is best known for supporting roles in a variety of TV shows including ER, so this is a little surprising to me. I am also in love with the idea of a lesser known like Porter to get such a big role. Unfortunately, the studio ended up changing Justice League, and Darkseid was no longer part of the plan, to much fan outcry.
Maybe someday Darkseid will make his entrance into the world of DC films, and maybe we’ll finally get to see Porter in the role. Would you have liked to see Porter in the role or were you wanting someone else?
