Steppenwolf, Apokolips’ esteemed general -- and uncle of Darkseid -- has been known to be the big-bad in Justice League for awhile now. However, fans haven't seen much (or any) of the character in promotional material for the Zack Snyder-directed film, apart from the leaked image for an upcoming LEGO tie-in. Now, we have our best look yet as Batman-News has obtained an image for an upcoming tie-in toy that boasts a two-pack featuring Batman and Steppenwolf. Take a look at the tweet below for a glimpse, and follow the link for more photos.

In the comics, Steppenwolf first appeared in New Gods #7, by comics legend Jack Kirby. He has a solid villainous resume as the general of the army on Apokolips, plus one-ups Superman, as he actually survived a battle with Doomsday. The character recently appeared in the “Darkseid War” arc of Justice League by Geoff Johns and Jason Fabok.
Arriving Nov. 17, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta and J. K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
