In a devastating blow for Warner Bros.' upcoming Justice League movies, lead villain Darkseid has reportedly walked off the film and will no longer be the main antagonist. The report comes via website Birth Movies Death, which explains that, though Darkseid wasn't a fan of Superman's portrayal in Man of Steel, he was holding out hope that Batman v. Superman would turn things around. However, Darkseid is said to be disgusted by the results of that movie, telling sources that "Mark Waid was right" and apparently severing ties with Warner Bros and director Zack Snyder.

Looking to soften the blow of Darkseid's departure, Snyder has decided to also take some feedback about the grim and gritty tone of DC's movieverse introduce a new set of villains that will bring "fun" back to the superhero genre. According to sources, Warner Bros. has hired sixties rock group Steppenwolf to fill the role left behind by Darkseid. The aged rockers and producers of hits such as "Born to Be Wild" and "Magic Carpet Ride" will prove to be a threat that only a combination of Earth's Mightiest Heroes can handle, but since Warner Bros. doesn't have the rights to The Avengers, they'll call on the Justice League instead.

Justice League Part 1: Hot Night in a Cold Town will hit theaters in November 17, with Justice League Part 2: It's Never Too Late coming in 2019.
