It’s getting hard to keep up with all of the villains (and heroes) rumored to be participating in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Heck, it’s hard enough keeping up with the rumors about who wrote which version of a fake script that all of this info may or may not be coming from. And now there are fresh rumors that Doomsday will be making an appearance in the film, perhaps as one of the five villains people claim are on tap for this franchise installment.
Hit the jump for more on the possible Batman v Superman Doomsday appearance. The film stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Jason Momoa, Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto, Scoot McNairy, Diane Lane, and Jeremy Irons. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens in theaters on May 6, 2016.
Bleeding Cool is reporting that some of their most reliable sources have seen Doomsday designs for Batman v Superman. You’ll remember that Doomsday “killed” Superman in The Death of Superman. Keep in mind this is still in the rumor column, but maybe this is where we get some context for those leaked set photos showing mourners carrying flowers to the altar of Superman built in Metropolis?
In any case, this movie seems absolutely overstuffed. Man of Steel felt overstuffed and confused to me (remember Russell Crowe’s dragons) and that had a fraction of the characters we’re seeing here. I don’t want to be a downer on this film, and I could easily be wrong, but it seems like WB is just throwing as many characters into the mix as possible hoping for another Avengers. Of course, the problem with this, as many have said before, is that there’s no context for any of them. They haven’t had their own films to introduce them yet, so I’m concerned shoehorning all of them into this one picture will involve contrivance of epic proportions.
What do you think?
