Batman V Superman: 8 Major Reveals From The New Images
7. Why Doomsday?
Since it was finally confirmed that Doomsday will be squaring off against The Trinity in that spoiler-ific trailer for Batman v Superman, many fans have been asking why the iconic villain is being used as canon fodder for the newly formed Justice League instead of being saved for what would no doubt be a much more significant role in the yet to be announced Man of Steel sequel. "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 explains. "He is essentially an unstoppable force. He poses a real threat to the world within the film." That's fair enough then, and hopefully Doomsday will prove himself to be more than the just another CGI bad guy who will be quickly done away with in the last twenty minutes. Surprisingly, neither Snyder nor Jesse Eisenberg would comment on Lex Luthor's involvement with the creation of Doomsday, but the director did seemingly confirm some long-standing rumours about Lex having a serious obsession with those who have superpowers, and in particular, Wonder Woman. "You learn pretty early on that Lex is interested in metahuman existence and that there might be some relationship between that investigation and the appearance of Diana Prince..." It was said last year that he has photos of a woman who hasn't aged for centuries, but why that investigation would bring Diana to Metropolis remains to be seen.
