Steppenwolf in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice deleted scene!

Since the announcement that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice would receive an R-rated extended bluray  everyone has been wondering what it would include. Director Zack Snyder revealed that would be an extended scene the confirms the death of a key character at the start of the movie and now Warner Bros. has released a deleted scene from the film that features Lex (Jesse Eisenberg) and Steppenwolf!

In the comics Steppenwolf rides a cool hover bike and is one of the New Gods, His younger brother is Heggra, and his nephew is Uxas (Darkseid). He is a member of Darkseid’s Elite and leads the military of Apokolips,

Steppenwolf is one of the earliest survivors of Doomsday, the monster who once killed Superman. 245,000 years ago, Steppenwolf takes an Apokolips shuttle with Darkseid, Master Mayhem and a small crew to the planet of Bylan 5. The planet holds delicate natural materials Apokolips needs for weaponry, material which would be destroyed in the event of an invasion. The forcible marriage of Darkseid to the planet’s princess comes to an end when Doomsday attacks. Master Mayhem is swiftly torn apart. Darkseid ignores Steppenwolf’s orders to use Omega Beams and engages the creature in hand-to-hand combat. Steppenwolf sees the destruction wrought has doomed the planet and all who live on it. He teleports Darkseid out of harm’s way, agreeing with Darkseid not to mention this to anyone. Doomsday escapes by stowing away on the Apokolips shuttle.

Steppenwolf appears later when Mister Miracle gains godlike powers over life and death. He torments Scott Free over his role in killing his mother (or alleged mother figure as is claimed) and in return is physically tortured. Scott ends up healing him, instead of killing him as he desires. He is sent with Darkseid’s legions.

With The New 52 reboot that takes place following the 2011 Flashpoint limited series, a new version of Earth-2 is introduced. In the continuity of that parallel world, Steppenwolf leads a massive invasion of the planet by Darkseid’s parademons. Ultimately, Earth’s heroes manage to successfully repel the invaders, but the Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman of that world are all killed in battle.

Five years later Steppenwolf is apparently hiding on Earth-2, and there is a $300 million reward for him. He is eventually killed by that world’s version of Superman, whom Steppenwolf had employed as a soldier and indoctrinated into fighting for Apokolips.

Steppenwolf also appears briefly in an issue of Justice League within The New 52 taking part in the torturing of Superman. Steppenwolf is seen as support for Darkseid when he moves to attack the Anti-Monitor.
