Director Zack Snyder has recently taken the internet by storm with his hard hitting facts and trivia regarding his DCEU movies. Zack has explained to his fans his vision for the DC Extended Universe and in the process, has given the DC fans some extremely astounding revelations. If you think the Flash suit or the three crosses at the end of Dawn of Justice is where it ends, we urge you to think again. Zack Snyder, Father of the DCEU, claims the Real Doomsday is still alive and kicking in the shared superhero universe!!!!
In his official Vero account which has been the epicenter of all the DCEU revelations by Snyder, Zack confirms one rumor about the DCEU that was actually something that had been the center of a long asked question within the DCEU fan base. The question was – is the real Doomsday still alive? The answer as given by Snyder confirms it to be a hard yes. Zack is seen saying the ‘real’ Doomsday is lurking within the shadows of the DC Universe somewhere.
How’s that for a wakeup call!!!
The movie Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice introduced us to Doomsday. Doomsday was actually a being created out of science that is forbidden to be ever used by anyone via Kryptonian Law. Lex Luthor uses the advanced technologies of the Kryptonian Scout Ship to make Doomsday. He uses the ship’shyper-advancedd Genesis chamber and splices his own DNA into that of General Zod’s from 2013’s Man of Steel to create an absolute abomination with a plethora of abilities that far surpassed that of Superman. It was termed Doomsday by Luthor and it was true for the Last Son of Krytpon all the more. Doomsday ended up being the doomsday for Superman as the latter died at the end of the movie while trying to stop him.
When a fan asked Zack Snyder via his Vero Account about Doomsday’s status within the DCEU, Snyder gave a quick reply:
“Yes, the Real Doomsday is out there still.”
In the comic books, Doomsday was a living bio-weapon that was the brainchild of Bertron, an ancient Kryptonian scientist. The concept for Doomsday was simple. Bertron intended to create the perfect biological weapon that can kill and survive any attack with ease. To do that, Bertron wanted to imbue his test subject with the powers of accelerated evolution. Every time his subject died, Bertron would use the biosamples of the corpse to resurrect the creature but with the immunity to be killed by whatever killed the creature the last time.
After hundreds of cycles of being killed and resurrected back, Doomsday was born – a being that was literally unkillable. Doomsday would later kill Bertron and break his staff. He would eventually wind up on Earth where he fought Superman and the rest is history.
In the animated Superman: Doomsday production, it was Lex Luthor who awoke the deadly giant after the latter’s ship crash landed on Earth. So, BVS paid homage to that scene by using Lex Luthor to recreate Doomsday from scratch. Doomsday, in both versions, was heavily dependent on Luthor for an origin story. But the fact is, the version of Doomsday that the DCEU showed us is not the real Doomsday. It is an experiment conducted by Luthor using cutting-edge Kryptonian science.
The real Doomsday has been in the DCEU long before General Zod’s corpse was mutilated into something grotesque and deadly. The real Doomsday showed up at the end of Season 1 of Krypton, whose events are largely considered canon to the DC Extended Universe. And Zack Snyder just confirmed them to be true after all.
Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice is out in DVD/Blu-Ray. The official film synopsis for the movie reads:
It’s been nearly two years since Superman’s (Henry Cavill) colossal battle with Zod (Michael Shannon) devastated the city of Metropolis. The loss of life and collateral damage left many feeling angry and helpless, including crime-fighting billionaire Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck). Convinced that Superman is now a threat to humanity, Batman embarks on a personal vendetta to end his reign on Earth, while the conniving Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) launches his own crusade against the Man of Steel.
