One of the oldest rumours about Batman V Superman was that Doomsday, the comics character who killed Superman, will appear in Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
HERE BE (POSSIBLE) SPOILERS
And it’s back courtesy of Umberto Gonzalez on the latest Shanlian on Batman podcast. Gonzalez says Doomsday will look incredible in the movie and is Lex Luthor’s secret weapon against Superman.
Basically he likens Doomsday to Vader in Star Wars and how he follows Luthor’s commands much like Vader followed Tarkin’s. Now, this brings us back to a rumour that was around some time ago that Zod, Michael Shannon, will be Doomsday.
The story then – and now, it seems – is that Luthor will experiment on Zod’s corpse and create Doomsday from him… a sort of Frankenstein’s monster that can stand toe-to-toe with Superman: “It’s been out there, but it’s official. We are going to see Doomsday,” says Gonzalez.
Interestingly, he also says that the “can you bleed?” scene in the trailer may be a dream sequence…
The full interview is below for your listening pleasure but we much say, we think there’s something to this whole Doomsday prophecy (sorry)…
What do you all think?
