Batman V Superman Production Designer Promises There’s More To Doomsday Than The Trailer Reveals

While fans think they’ve pieced together the plot of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice from the apparently incredibly spoilery most recent trailer, production designer Patrick Tatopoulos has told Premiere that there’s a lot, lot more that’s not on show to surprise audiences.

From the clues in the trailer it looks like Lex Luther somehow gets his mitts on Zod’s body and transforms him into Doomsday. But that’s not the full story, says Tatopoulos.

“We are able to tell a story in a fresh way,” he says. “Doomsday is an evolution essentially. Fans may be aware of ‘The Death of Superman’ story [in which he was introduced in the comics – ed], but this is handled in such a new way.

“When the film is called Batman V Superman it really has a lot of levels to the meaning. Superman isn’t just killed off at the end of something. We see how he evolves as part of Lex’s plan to protect the world. Seeing the Superman we know, be gone, and then replaced with this reproduction is really going to make fans think of how we look at these super beings. It was especially interesting to figure out, how would you create Superman from Zod… then how that would evolve into Doomsday.

Tatopoulos, who was the man who designed Godzilla for the Roland Emmerich version, also promises that Doomsday “isn’t just the final act” and that there’s actually a “larger threat” in the film, which will surprise fans in terms of how the “timeframe of things will fall into place.”

Batman V Superman opens in the UK on 25 March 2016.
