Apparently Warner Bros shot down Darkseid immediately after Bryan proposed it to them.
They thought the concept of that character sucked.
I don't think they'll ever approve of Darkseid in live action unless Nolan puts his seal of approval on it.
Personally, I would have loved to have seen Darkseid in live action for the first time, but it would have been a weird mix with Brandon Routh's pre-crisis Superman.
