Heroic Hollywood is reporting that Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) will be tussling with Doomsday in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice next year. The latter character, who has yet to be glimpsed in any of the trailers and promotional material thrown our way so far, is a biological weapon created by LexCorp using recovered Kryptonian technology and the corpse of General Zod (Michael Shannon). The Superman foe will reportedly factor in heavily to the films third act as he is unleashed to do battle with our triumvirate of heroes.
According to HH, part of this epic super smackdown will involve Diana going toe-to-toe with the creature and lopping off one of his hands during their face-off with her sword. In fine cliched sci-fi/fantasy tradition, something will almost instantly grow back in place of the missing hand: a bone sword. The site stops there with their reveal, but one can assume that the battle continues and eventually Superman (Henry Cavill) and Batman (Ben Affleck) come to her aid. Or perhaps they’ve already been rendered immobile by the beast and it is Diana who is saving them? The latter would be positively refreshing, but we won’t know the truth of the matter until early next year.
