Concept artist Jerad S.Marantz shared the early Doomsday designs on his Instagram account. “Here’s a very early Doomsday concept I did for Batman v Superman a couple of years back. I did several options for the character. It really was an honor working on such an amazing project with such an incredible team,” he wrote.
