SPOILERS AHEAD

So here’s the rumour of the day: While Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) will be the main villain, a certain Doomsday may be coming to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

According to Umberto Gonzalez, a.k.a. @elmayimbe, that’s exactly what’s going to happen. While speaking on the Shanlian On Batman podcast, Gonzalez said Doomsday would serve as Luthor’s muscle.

The ever reliable blogger, formerly of Latino Review, added that the live-action Doomsday looks “incredible”.

Doomsday is, of course, best known for actually killing the Man of Steel in a controversial storyline way back in 1992, at the cost of his own life.

Originating from the planet Krypton as well, Doomsday was the creation of an alien scientist. He then broke free and came to Earth, where only Superman was able to stop his rampage.

Personally, Doomsday would make an awesome cinematic villain. But as it stands, the movie already looks overcrowded: Supes, Bats, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Lex Luthor, even a rumoured role for Robin…

Will Doomsday simply end up as a means to perpetuate the destruction porn Zack Snyder is so fond of? I sure hope not.
