Will Doomsday be introduced in Batman V Superman?

Jul. 10, 2014by:

Well, we can take the following story with a grain of salt, but given all the hubbub over the possibility of a leaked BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE script NOT written by Kevin Smith, who knows at this point, right? Bleeding Cool is reporting that designs are being done for the character of Doomsday. As I'm sure most of us can recall, Doomsday was the creature responsible for taking down Superman (temporarily, at least). There is no report as far as what capacity Doomsday may show up in, though.

Last month, there was a rumor of the Death of Superman storyline being played out to some extent in Batman V Superman, given that there have been pictures of a memorial service. Our own sources indicate that the memorial was actually following the events of MAN OF STEEL, which would make a little more sense, given how packed this film already is. Not only do we have a Batman vrs Superman flick, but as the expanded title and casting suggest that the seeds of the Justice League will be planted as well. A story as significant as the Death of Superman would probably be relegated to a (mostly) Supes-only movie, or at least, the Justice League in general. Either way, we have a little ways to go before the truth shall set us free in 2016.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE will be released on May 6, 2016.

I never read the comics, going solely on the fact he kills superman in a storyline... I could see the writers falling into the predictable trap of having Doomsday kill off Superman. The death becomes an inspiration to the other characters. they unite to form the justice league, avenge, yadda yadda etc etc...

I sincerely hope they do not go this route.

The only way he should be in this film is in a end scene or after credit type scene.

And I bet this isn't happening, maybe at some point in the future, but not in this movie. If you want GREAT comic debate tho, check out [link]

Of course he is.

Snyder is going to shove as much fanfare down everyone's throat as possible. It's how he compensates. But hey, it worked for Man of Steel, it worked for Twilight, it worked for the Transformers films.

Character OVERLOAD in this, insane. They should go by Marvel's Phases, Doomsday should be in the Justice League first or 2nd movie and the final JL villain would definitely be Darkseid. They need to save Doomsday for one of those.

Doomsday deserves to be in a movie SOMEDAY, but I feel strongly that it shouldn't be this one - not even an end credits teaser like Thanos from Avengers.

So the next news should be the reveal of who's playing the kitchen sink.

Will Doomsday be introduced in BVSDOJ? Sure, why the hell not? It would be churlish not to, considering that they're introducing the rest of the DC universe in BVSDOJ.

I would much rather see a post-credits scene of the green gloved hand punching away at the inside of the metal box. They could do a few of them at the end of several films showing Doomsday slowly escaping. That thread could run throughout the different Justice League movies that tease the complete death and return story line they could film as Man of Steel 3.

For the first time, I can actually comment on the source material vs. movie

I read this a long time ago, and it really is a great story. But if Doomsday is what they put into B vs S, then consider this my first negative thought on the film. Doomsday is such a big story, what with all the "Superman"s that come with it and whatnot, it definitely needs to have its own film. I too would prefer a MoS 2 that has Lex or someone else as the main villain, then MoS 3 can really up the ante with the Doomsday story. Heck, I even like the name Man of Steel: Doomsday. Simple.

As much as I love Doomsday, yeah, it's too early to introduce him. This film has enough already being introduced. Save him for later definitely.

I have a lot of faith in this film, but introducing Doomsday would both overcrowd it and devalue the character. This thing killed Superman, for christ's sake. Doomsday isn't a monster-of-the-week which is the only way he could be treated in a movie as busy as this.

Man of steel 3

I was actually hoping they would do a Lex Luther Man of Steel sequel and then for Man of Steet 3 they would do a Superman vs. Doomsday. Instead of this whole Batman vs. Superman thing they got going on.

FYI that last picture isn't Doomsday...

it's Equus from the "For Tomorrow" storyline.

Man of Steel 2

That DC movie list that made the rounds a couple of weeks ago had an official MOS2 on it. Since Bats v Sups is not MOS2 then Doomsday could be the villain in that film. It wouldn't surprise me that someone is already having sketches drawn up for the design. It can be a lengthy process to get a character to look right for the screen.

No way

I don't think Doomsday is a character that can be merely "introduced," nor is the DOS story line (one of the greatest comics ever) something that can only be partially addressed.

Screw it, they should just do DC vs Marvel

They already have a ton of characters, let's just throw in the entire DC and Marvel roster. Why not?

Recently re-watched Man of Steel and found myself enjoying it more the second time around. I have issues with it, but mainly has to do with the hokey dialogue and the fact that Pa Kent preaches the importance of nonviolence but then the last hour of the movie is pure action.

Supes killing Zod I don't think is a massive issue, but goes along with the fact that the main threat was resolved with more violence.

OH NO!
Superman beat him to death in the comics - but Superman doesn't kill right - so I guess we will have another round of hatred for this movie.

I don't think it's too early to introduce Doomsday. It needs a big threat to unite Batman and Superman. But I wonder who Batman will be facing when, supposedly, Superman faces Doomsday?
