Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice did not resonate with a lot of people. The critical reception of the film on Rotten Tomatoes stands at a 27% and a film with both Batman and Superman has the potential to pass the $1 billion mark at the box office… it didn’t. There are a ton of problems with the film such as its overtly dark tone, muddled narrative, and lackluster villain. Another complain would pertain to the portrayal of Doomsday in the film as it simply served as another CGI heavy monster that didn’t have much going for it. However, it seems that it isn’t necessarily the case as Snyder has revealed that the “real’ Doomsday still exists in the DC Extended Universe.
A fan asked Zack Snyder on his Vero account if the “real” version of Doomsday is still around and the director confirmed that he’s still around somewhere:
Doomsday’s emergence in the film was the result of an experiment by Lex Luthor on the corpse of General Zod. Batman, Superman and Wonder-Woman team up to stop it in what would be a threading of The Death of Superman storyline. In the end, Superman died but it still didn’t provide much for the film overall as it didn’t do the source material justice.
Its great to know that there is a possibility of a proper incarnation of Doomsday. Perhaps if DC does relatively well in their upcoming films, they would be able to explore this. It’s still a wonder what would be happening with Clark Kent as not much has been said about future Superman films but perhaps Snyder is hinting at something here…. or he’s just trying to fix his mess.
