Reason Why Doomsday Is Used In Batman V. Superman Revealed

In the latest issue of Empire magazine, director Zack Snyder discusses the reason as to why he chose to use Doomsday in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice and what is Lex Luthor's (Jesse Eisenberg) connection with Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot).

"To go up against heroes like Batman and Superman, we wanted to introduce one of the DC Universe's most iconic and powerful villains," Snyder said of the beastly creature known as Doomsday. "He is essentially an unstoppable force. He poses a real threat to the world within the film."

From the trailers we can see that Lex Luthor plays a major role in the creations of Doomsday. The research that leads up to that experiment will draw Wonder Woman's attention. "You learn pretty early on that Lex is interested in metahuman existence," Snyder offered, "and that there might be some relationship between that investigation and the appearance of Diana Prince."

In Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

    There is no justification for this,Zack. None. You've taken THE big bad villain, the one who can and does kill Superman, and you've watered him down to an experience and a pawn created by a human. You used him too soon to carry any impact or meaning behind his existence and what he's capable of. You don't choose the biggest of the big for your first "team" outting. You're as guilty as the writers for Smallville now.

  1. I think that Doomsday is not that big of a villain, he doesn't really kills Superman, most of the storys about him are boring and you seem to forget that the one thing that Doomsday has to his advantage, besides his strength, is that he always comes back from the dead, bigger, badder and more boring than before. He'll return.

    I remember an episode in some of the DC cartoons, where Superman just killed him with heat vision to the head.

    For the Justice League, the big ones are Starro, Darkseid, Despero, Amazo and any of the criminal teams we've seen over time. 

  2. that was the stupidest thing i ever read. He wanted to you use a villain in hope that it generate hype to make money. we all know the movie is gonna do very well. but by putting in doomsday they bring down the danger of doomsday. point that this movie is a hail mary pass for dc to kick off the universe. they dont need to just all everything to it its gonna succeed regardless. sheesh dc relax the money and attention is coming dont milk it all with one movie then you go away very fast.

  3. yes the cartoons not the comics. reread the death of superman.

    Seemingly you don't use original source material as your basis for how "big" or "interesting" a villain is. That aside, I don't understand how you can be oblivious to the fact that Doomsday, did indeed, kill Superman. It was a huge event in the industry and gained mainstream media attention. I'm also surprised that you advocate the fact that Doomsday does/will keep coming back bigger and stronger when you are of the opinion that he's not interesting and pretty weak. I don't know where you get your sources beyond watered down cartoon versions of these characters, but I'd strongly suggest reading The Death of Superman PRINTED story arc for some real insight into this character's invincibility, an maybe even the follow up for his background in Superman VS. Doomsday.
