Nothing that signals a shit superhero movie like a two-dimensional alien lord with accompanying army and no developed motivation other than wanting to destroy everything.

He inspired Darth Vader.

"The Fourth World" dealt with the battle between good and evil as represented by the worlds of New Genesis and Apokolips. Darkseid, the evil lord of Apokolips, seeks the Anti-Life Equation which will allow him to control the thoughts of all living beings. Opposing him is Orion, his son raised by Highfather and his enemies on New Genesis.[9] Other characters caught in the deadly battle included the Forever People, an extension of the kid gang concept from the 1940s with a group of adolescents adventuring without an adult supervisor;[10] Mister Miracle, a native of New Genesis raised on Apokolips who triumphed over a torturous childhood to become the world's greatest escape artist; and Lightray, the heroic warrior of New Genesis. Their adventures would take them to Earth where the war continued.

Star Wars was just a rip off of Kirby's Fourth World saga

I'm not sold, but I'll probably try the film anyway.

no point, it's the third entry in a trilogy (and the second part was a big let down), just watch superman the animated series and justice league / justice league unlimited instead.

was just pointing out that darkseid isn't a generic villain, he's the prototypical intergalactic destroyer of life that formed the archetype that was then used by star wars, marvel, he-man and 100 other franchises until it was run into the ground.

It's a 4 hour movie, so it has a shot of actually doing justice to the new gods.
