BATMAN v SUPERMAN Production Designer Teases "Larger Threat" Beyond 'Doomsday'

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice production designer Patrick Tatopoulos indicates that Doomsday isn't the only villain who will be showing up in the movie's final act, and drops some very interesting hints about the evolution of the fearsome monster. Hit the jump for details.

UPDATE: Believe it or not, it appears as if Cosmic Book News fabricated this entire interview! They're known for making up scoops, but this is obviously something else altogether. We've kept the original URLs to the site below, but it doesn't seem as if this originated from Premiere.

In a recent interview in Premiere (via Cosmic Book News), Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice production designer Patrick Tatopoulos dropped some very interesting hints about Doomsday's role in the movie, seemingly dismissing in the process the theories that it will in any way be adapting the "Death of Superman" story arc. The villain's look has obviously been fairly divisive since he first appeared in the latest trailer for the movie, but could we see him evolve in any way here? "We are able to tell a story in a fresh way," Tatopoulos explains. "Doomsday is an evolution essentially. Fans may be aware of the death of Superman story, but this is handled in such a new way."

Unfortunately, it appears as if he's referring to the evolution Doomsday goes through when Lex Luthor is transforming the body of General Zod into the near unstoppable monster rather than into something closer to his comic book counterpart during the finale battle, but the production designer's comments are still very intriguing. "When the film is called Batman v or versus 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 would that involve into Doomsday." Here's where things get even more interesting though. Tatopoulos went on to tease that there's a "larger threat" at play, while the "timeframe of how things fall into place will surprise fans" and:

"Doomsday isn't just the final act." 
 
Does that mean we're going to get our first look at Darkseid or Brainiac?! All he would say to that is, "Those feeling they may know too much this early, are going to be in for a true surprise." When pushed for details on their possible being a threat beyond Lex Luthor and Doomsday, Tatopoulos would only say, "That's something to find out on March 25th." What do you guys think?
