Doomsday May Appear In Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice image
Its going to be a long two years between now and the 2016 release of Zack Snyders Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Not only because we are dying to finally see the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight go toe-to-toe. But also because were going to have to wade through a river of rumors regarding every possible hero, villain and supporting character who may show up in this movie because its believed that Batman v. Superman is building to a much bigger Justice League movie.

This story very likely is untrue unless its a brief cameo tease, which well talk about in a second but its worth reporting, in case it somehow turns out to be legit. But the folks over at BleedingCool are quoting sources as saying character designs for Doomsday have been spied, and the massive, hulking villain is "planned to appear" in the superhero blockbuster.

You know, alongside Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), maybe Aquaman (Jason Momoa), possibly Mr. Zsasz you get the point. Theres already going to be a boatload of characters in Zack Snyders developing movie, and unless he plans a four-hour epic, there just wont be enough screen time for everyone already mentioned AND Doomsday.

For those who are unaware, Doomsday was introduced in the comic books "Superman: The Man of Steel" issues 17 and 18. Hes best known as the villain who finally "killed" Superman at the end of an epic battle, though the heros demise was short-lived (obviously).

Doomsday is an unstoppable, lethal machine. Hed be a tremendous on-screen presence, and I dont doubt that Warner Bros., DC Comics and Zack Snyder will want to use him in a movie somewhere down the line. In fact, Id relate Doomsday to Thanos, the villain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe who is SO powerful, he needs all of these heroes to unite to stop him, because Superman and Batman can not slow him down individually.

So is it possible that Doomsday shows up in an end-credits tease at the end of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, leading into the Justice League movie that Snyder also is supposed to direct? Yes. Its possible. But unlikely right now. Stay tuned. Maybe well know more after Comic-Con. But the rumor is out there. Mull it over.
