First Image of Darkseid in 'Justice League: War'

Check out what the Dread Lord of Apokolips will look like in DC's next animated movie.

DC's next animated film, Justice League: War, is inspired by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee's first JUSTICE LEAGUE storyline. If you've read it, then you know the tale revolves around the Justice League battling an invasion from Darkseid. We've had a look at other characters, but now we're getting a first look at the big bad. The cosmic villain will be voiced by Steve Blum, and publicist Gary Miereanu tweeted the first screenshot of the fiend.

Also appearing in the film will be Wonder Woman (Michelle Monaghan), Superman (Alan Tudyk), Batman (Jason O'Mara), Cyborg (Shemar Moore), The Flash (Christopher Gorham), Shazam (Sean Astin), and Green Lantern (Justin Kirk). Yes, Aquaman is absent, however, it's worth pointing out it has been stated Arthur will be the focus of an upcoming animated film. Perhaps 'Throne of Atlantis?'

Directed by Jay Oliva, Justice League: War is scheduled for release early 2014. And in case you missed it, Miereanu also previously provided a first look at Shazam, Wonder Woman, and Batman.
