David Corenswet’s Superman should stay far away from the DC villain who started the death of the Snyderverse
As David Corenswet takes up the mantle of Superman in the DCUdie-hards warned the newcomer to avoid the antagonist who stopped the demise of the SnyderVerse.
With rumors of a great script written by James Gunn for the sequel Superman movie, fans flocked to the r/DC_Cinematic subreddit to find out if they would like to see Doomsday return to the franchise after controversial events Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice back in 2016.
Redditors agree that Doomsday (Robin Atkin Downes) is an amazing character and welcome his return. However, they still haven’t recovered from the fatal blow he dealt to Henry Cavill’s predecessor at Corenswet in 2016.
One Redditor expressed that they wanted to see Warner Bros. continue with their plan to release a follow-up film about the resurrection of Superman.
Another Redditor didn’t like Doomsday and didn’t see why the character should return to the DCU.
Another Redditor still felt bitter about the demise of Superman and was happy to see the back of Doomsday.
However, most fans did not protest against Doomsday over the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and he could see a place for it in the new narrative down the line.
The consensus in the fan community suggests that it would be premature to bring Doomsday into the DCU. Warner Bros has yet to deliver on its plan to bring Superman back from the dead – Doomsday is still the character that killed the Man of Steel. So, he needs to lay low for a while before it makes sense to revisit his story.
