I, like most nerds and Moviepilot readers, want to learn as much about something comicbook related as I can. And on my search for this knowledge I heard a rumor that Doomsday would be in BvS. (This was about 6 months ago). Upon hearing this news I got a little excited because Doomsday is one of my favorite DC villians ever and I've always wanted to see a live action version of this character. (This leads us to today). Just like the rest of the world, I went and watched the new Batman v Superman trailer. And I saw this:
When I first saw him I was a little confused. then I re-watched the trailer and paused it at this moment to allow it to sink in. While I was thinking, I couldn't help but think to myself, "why didn't they make him look like this:
And judging by the very first sight of him in the trailer:
And the clear shot of him I showed above, why does all he make me think of... is this?"
I don't know about you, but I was a little disappointed with the Doomsday I saw in the trailer. Now granted I haven't seen the movie yet, so I won't be making any final opinions on him until then. But for now, my excitement isn't as high as it used to be. Don't get me wrong, I still want to see this movie. I just really hope DC makes me eat my own words. It's also granted that this is only the first view of him. Maybe in a later movie we'll see him again and he'll grow out his spikes more. Or maybe later in this movie. Who knows. But I'm willing to keep an open mind on him right now, so hopefully DC will make me proud.
