Since Zack Snyder’s exit from the DC Extended Universe franchise, fans have been learning new things about the behind-the-scenes creative process behind Snyder’s films. These ideas reflect how epic the filmmaker’s vision was for the arc that began in Man of Steel, continuing till Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Doomsday in Snyder’s Batman vs Superman
Thanks to new concept art, we bring ourselves back to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This art reveals a much different design for the Zack Snyder’s version of Doomsday.
What’s Cool About This Doomsday Design?
Honestly, we’ve already seen dozens of concept arts for what Doomsday could look like in Batman v Superman. However, this one is definitely worth showcasing, as concept artist Jerad S. Marantz did an incredible job with this version of Doomsday, which is its own live-action adaptation of the character. It’s also a pretty fitting ode to Doomsday’s comic book counterpart. What’s cool about this design is that way it invokes Michael Shannon’s General Zod look from Man of Steel.
It was Zod’s body that was manipulated by Lex Luthor to create Doomsday. This version of the creature looks like it’s body is mimicking the space suits of Krypton that Zod and his team wore. This would’ve been a cool thematic way of having Superman’s betrayal of Zod in Man of steel come back to haunt him.
