“In a weird way, Justice League is the next step for these characters to form a bigger team. Maybe there’s a bigger enemy to fight,” Zack Snyder coyly teased fans earlier this year. The director of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and the defacto leader of the DC Cinematic Universe, Zack Snyder threw out some more tidbits of information regarding the much hyped Dawn of Justice and the appearance of Doomsday while promoting the ‘Doritos: Crash the Superbowl’ promotion. Wouldn’t Bane just be the one who does that anyways? He can comment on a ‘lovely lovely’ singing voice! BAM!
Any-who, Snyder went on to respond to fans on why he has included Doomsday in Dawn of Justice. “Well, you have Doomsday, right? He doesn’t just crawl out of the ground. He has his own mythology, right? So that has to be explored. To us it really made sense to give [Doomsday] to the audience now. I really wanted to make the audience a promise that… though I’m super excited and happy and fulfilled by the conflict of Batman and Superman, there’s also a bigger world to start to think about.”
Zack then went on to the potential future of the DC Cinematic Universe and the general plans for it. “[The DCEU roadmap] is constantly evolving, but we’re starting to get a handle on where we’re going with the world. That’s fun because it allows us now to be driving toward a goal that we don’t have to make up as much. The rules can be the rules, and the movie can exist in a closed universe… it allows us to tie things together. If there’s a movie over here doing this, and we’re over here doing this, now we’re all on the same page. It allows for a coherent universe, which is important. I think that makes the experience a little more satisfying because we know where we’re going, so the misdirects can be stronger and the reveals can be bigger.” Does that mean that ‘Doomsday’ in the film may not even be the final form of him? Oh Zack Snyder…don’t you dare Sucker Punch us again!
