Ciarán Hinds Talks Steppenwolf Mo-Cap For Zack Snyder's 'Justice League'

A character that is yet to be shown in the trailers for Zack Snyder's Justice League, is the film's main antagonist, Steppenwolf. In the comics he, Steppenwolf, is the lieutenant of the Parademons - an army of otherworldly soldiers who wreak havoc on worlds, who we will also see in the film - and is the uncle to Darkseid - we'll get teases of him in the film too.

Irish actor Ciarán Hinds confirmed he will play the League enemy, and has now been interview again about this role, this time on The Michael Ball Show.

In the interview, the topic of conversation moved to Hinds' next big project which lo and behold is Justice League, and so he began talking about the sort aesthetic we will be dealing with in the film.
“I’m sorry I’m not in costume," he joked. "I didn’t even have a costume when I was doing it. It’s all done in motion capture. So… they stick a helmet on your head, they put two cameras around, and they capture all your expressions, facial expressions. So basically, they’re going to concoct some kind of construction and they will use my facial expressions – eyes, mouth, voice – they’ll turn into this murderous, avenging Steppenwolf from the planet Apokolips, apparently. Who’s bent on Hell on Earth.”

Hinds was then asked had he seen DC Films' recent film, the mega-hit Wonder Woman, this question lead into another piece of info on how the cast acted out without seeing Hinds at all. “No," he explained. "I don’t know whether they’re all afraid to come and meet me– no, no they weren’t, really. Because it’s imaginary, you do it with green screen… That was another challenge, you could say, yeah. But it was quite fun. And they’re very encouraging in what you do, suggesting ‘Over here, look over there, imagine that, do this here, they’re coming at you now.'”

As mentioned before, we have not seen a glimpse of Steppenwolf in the film, but perhaps we might see him soon thanks to a trailer that will more than likely be released July 22 when Warner Bros. show off the film at this year's San Diego Comic-Con.

Fuelled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
