Following Henry Cavill revealing new Superman details, now actorÂ Ciaran Hinds reveals new details about the villain of the Justice League, Steppenwolf, from the official Justice League magazine.
"I guess you'd call him a super-villain," Hinds says. "He hails from the planet of Apokolips and he is the general of the Apokoliptian army who has come to take the world. For thousands ofÂ yearsÂ he's been in search of the Mother Boxes, which are all-powerful entities. He's in search of all-power, and that's his journey. His powers are physical rather than any form of mental agility. His real powers are wielded through his extraordinary axe weapon. When he chooses to use it, it creates mayhem and it decimated everything around it."
On the Mother Boxes:
"There's one under the sea with the Atlanteans, there's one in the hands of theÂ Amazons,Â and one with mankind. They don't even know what's inside of it, they just know it's protected and must never get out of their hands," Ciaran Hinds offers.
Boom Tube confirmed!
"Yes - it's like aÂ transporter,Â or a super shuttle that goes between universes. It transports people quickly from another place and places them in a certain location," Hinds says.
More on Steppenwolf:
"He is not a fearful man atÂ all,Â because he believes he can handle anything. He wishes to create fear - not just that people should be afraid of him, but I think he gets pleasure out of it. If you come from the planet Apokolips we're all super beings - so Super Heroes are nothing," Hinds adds.Â
