Zack Snyder’s Justice League marketing is using the Anti-Life symbol, which will take into account why Darkseid and his forces are coming to Earth.
Marketing for Zack Snyder’s Justice League The Anti-Life symbol, which connects to Darkseid and his forces coming to Earth, stands out in the film’s Snyder Cut. In an advance for him League of Justice Snyder Cut released on February 11, 2021, Darkseid’s general Steppenwolf can be seen hitting the ground below him, forming the Anti-Life symbol.
While this provides the best look yet of the Anti-Life symbol, it should be noted that this is not the first time it has been seen in the DCEU movies. The symbol made its first appearance at Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice In 2016, during Batman’s “Knightmare” sequence, when the hardened Bruce Wayne was gazing at the ruins of a completely demolished city and a massive version of the symbol had burned into the barren landscape. Likewise, the Anti-Life symbol was also briefly seen on Joss Whedon’s 2017 cutout from League of Justice, featured during Wonder Woman’s explanation of Steppenwolf’s first attempt to invade Earth, when the world was united against him and his forces.

Clearly, it appears that the Anti-Life symbol will appear much more prominently in Snyder Cut, which will launch on HBO Max on March 18, 2021, and that’s a good thing. Essentially, Anti-Life is the main reason Darkseid and his forces have come to Earth in the first place. The symbol itself is part of a larger sequence known as the Anti-Life Equation, a concept that came up with comic book legend Jack Kirby as motivation for Darkseid, whom he also created. In the comics, the complete and complete equation provides the means to break free will and subjugate the entire universe. While Darkseid only has one part of the Equation, he has long held the belief that the rest resides within humanity’s subconscious, hence his constant attempts to invade the planet. Likewise, it looks like the DCEU version will hold onto those same motivations as well.
As Batman’s vision of the future “Knightmare” implies in Batman v. Superman, Darkseid’s invasion would have been largely a success, perhaps even leading him to obtain his coveted Anti-Life Equation. League of Justice 2Production and release were ahead of Warner Bros. This is also evidenced by director Zack Snyder’s own taunts and suggestions in the years after its release, which indicated that Superman himself would have become susceptible to the power of the Equation after the death of Lois Lane. , which would have provided the explanation for his dark twist, killing Batman in Bruce Wayne’s dark vision of the possible future.
Regardless, it will be interesting to know if new details are given on the Anti-Life Equation in Zack Snyder’s Justice League when it launches on HBO Max in March. The true and dynamic motivation for Darkseid and his pardemon armies was something the 2017 cut lacked, and it seems Zack Snyder intends to change that in some pretty big way with the movie version.
