We all can agree that the alien conqueror Steppenwolf who we saw in the 2017 film Justice League, was one of the weakest movie villains in superhero movies. Voiced by Ciarán Hinds, Steppenwolf was a complete CGI creation and looks less formidable than intended, and was easily dispatched when Justice League got together. However, OG director Zack Snyder promises to show his fans the real iteration of Steppenwolf that he had planned for his original vision, which he would showcase in his Snyder Cut. The trailer gave us a glimpse of that, but it is the new viral clip that is now making us more excited to see this baddie on screen.

Now despite its flaws, one of the best scenes in the 2017 film Justice League was Steppenwolf taking on the Amazonians in a nice-choreographed action scene. Zack Snyder looks to have a different take on the scene, more brutal in fact. Since his cut is R-Rated, it allows Zack Snyder to go more violent in the action scenes and the glimpse of that result looks promising.
Snyder had shared the preview of the above scene in his Reels timeline from his post-production work area, and it went viral within seconds. The scene has Steppenwolf taking on the horse-riding Amazonians and brutally battering, with even the arrows sticking in his back not dampening his ferocity!
