With the new Batman vs Superman trailer finally here, there are a lot of questions to ask. The one I'm gonna be asking and answering today is, is Darkseid in the trailer? But first:
Who is Darkseid?
"Worshipped as the "God of Evil", Darkseid is one of the most powerful beings in existence and the supreme monarch of planet Apokolips. Considered one of Superman's greatest adversaries, the greatest enemy of New Genesis and one of the greatest threats to the DC Multiverse, he seeks to bend everything and everyone to his will and remake the cosmos in his image, while searching for the Anti-Life Equation." So obviously this dude is a big deal. Now for the important part.
Is he in the Batman vs Superman trailer?
So the answer is no, he's not physically shown in person in this trailer but, he is very much hinted. Darkseid has what are called Parademons that serve him and they look like this:
And if you remember in the trailer you can see some creatures that look very similar:
Could this be a vision or some sort of dream Batman has that hints at a bigger threat to come much like Thor did in [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](tag:293035)?
