General Zod To Become Doomsday In BATMAN v SUPERMAN?
The website comicbook.com is reporting that they've heard General Zod (Michael Shannon) will become the invulnerable villain known as Doomsday in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice. How? Hit the jump to find out more.
In November, Michael Shannon was photographed in Chicago hanging out with his Man Of Steel co-star Henry Cavill. Since then, fans have speculated that Shannon might reprise his role for Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, despite having his neck snapped like a twig by Superman. How can Zod return if he is dead? Well, comicbook.com has just posted a new rumor that could offer an explanation.
His corpse is stolen (or perhaps just acquired, given his military contacts in most versions of the modern mythology) by Lex Luthor and experimented on, presumably in the hopes of finding a weakness to exploit against Superman. In the course of his experimenting, we've been told that he "triggers the Doomsday genome," causing the corpse to reanimate as the mindless killing machine at the center of The Death of Superman.
It has been previously reported that Doomsday will appear in the film, so that should not be a shock to most of you. We've also heard that General Zod's corpse and the Kryptonian technology he brought to Earth in Man Of Steel could come into play in Batman v Superman, so that too shouldn't be a shock. So, how do you get Doomsday into the film?
In the comics, a Kryptonian scientist (Mertron) wants to make the perfect weapon and ends up making Doomsday. His perfect weapon ends up being too perfect and the dangerous creature is captured and and launched into space. Of course, he just so happens to end up on a crash course with Earth and gets buried in Ohio. Ohio! Doomsday eventually wakes up, goes on a rampage and kills Superman. The end.
I think having Doomsday end up being a product of Zod's dead corpse would make a bit more sense based on the universe that Snyder's has already begun to map out. What do you think?
