Unused Batman v Superman Footage Reveals Doomsday And Wonder Woman Battle
On Reddit, fans have noticed and posted a brief clip of Doomsday crashing through a wall while battling Wonder Woman. The clip, which did not appear in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, can be seen below. The shot seems to be from a different cut of the film. Although this particular clip of Doomsday did make the movie; Wonder Woman was not in the shot and faced off with Doomsday in a different way. Given the precise attention to detail that many of Zack Snyder‘s fans have given to nearly every aspect of this film, seeing any new content is likely to start a conversation, and so it has over on Reddit.
Doomsday appeared in Batman v Superman as what amounts to a Bizarro version of General Zod. Contaminated by Lex Luthor, Zod’s corpse rose back up as a mindless killing machine. Zod had to be taken down by the assembly of Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman.
What Doomsday’s creator Dan Jurgens said:
“I certainly understood why in the Batman v Superman film they had to modify the origin of Doomsday to something that involved Luthor for the sake of storytelling,” Doomsday’s creator Dan Jurgens said. He continued, “Obviously if you start to display it, this becomes 15 minutes of the movie. At the same time, I think the fact that we are not working with it more is when you get down to it, there is something rather scary. I think taking a creature and trying to create something that can evolve to a face whatever the challenge is at a much faster rate. To watch the creations die over and over again, and recreating them, so you push those evolutions in progress along at a much quicker rate. I think the kind of brain that would engineer something similarly is worthy of exploring, and I have always wondered it is also something that has helped make the origin of Doomsday unique. I think that’s part of what makes the character work.”
