The cast of Batman v.Superman is filling up. The upcoming film from Warner Bros and DC Comics will feature Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) together for the first time. However, as many reports have told us, the movie will see appearances from other heroes from the DC Universe, like Wonder Woman and Cyborg. While many of the heroes have been announced for this upcoming film, the movie seems to be lacking in villains. Sure the main antagonist will come in the form of Lex Luthor (played by Jesse Eisenberg), however with a movie of this magnitude, you would think another baddie would be making an appearance. As it turns out, rumors are circling that more villains will appear in Dawn of Justice. The latest report from Bleeding Cool deals with a rumor that Batman and Superman may go up against one of the Man of Steel's most notorious enemies.
The rumor suggest that the kryptonian monster known as Doomsday could make an appearance in the upcoming film. Doomsday was an enemy of Superman that was introduced in the 90's. Not only is Doomsday just as strong as Superman, but he was the catalyst to the event story known as The Death of Superman. Needless to say, Doomsday is not a walk in the park for Superman and Batman for that matter.
While this is just speculation, if rumor does end up being true, would Doomsday work as a villain in Batman v.Superman: Dawn of Justice? While many fans would be hesitant on seeing this titan, having Doomsday in Dawn of Justice may not be as far off as some could imagine. Man of Steel had the world under siege by an alien force; so it only stands to reason that the upcoming film needs to up the stakes. There needs to be a threat that brings both Superman and Batman, and while Lex Luthor can be the main antagonist, even he is not enough to be a threat for both heroes. Yet Doomsday could be that kind of threat, and if it is not him, then the film needs to have a monstrous enemy that could be to be a problem for both the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight.
What do you think? Would Doomsday fit as a villain for this upcoming film? Express your opinion in the comments below. Batman v.Superman: Dawn of Justice is scheduled to hit theaters on May 6,2016.
