Robin Atkin Downes Confirms Doomsday Role in ‘Batman v Superman’

Motion capture and voice actor Robin Atkin Downes (who you may have also heard in Batman: Bad Blood) took to Twitter today to confirm his role as Doomsday in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. 

Doomsday’s presence in the film was officially confirmed in the second trailer for the film although there was no word at the time of who would play him, with most of the speculation falling on Zod actor Michael Shannon.

Downes has not revealed any other details about the character or how long he worked on the film for, but it looks like the destructive monster will take up a large chunk of the film’s final act, just judging by the trailer.

Stay tuned for more news about this story as it develops.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25th.
