Will Doomsday Be In BATMAN V SUPERMAN?

A new rumor says he is. But will he kill the Man of Steel?

I've come to the conclusion that the 152 page Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice* script that's going around is in fact a fake. A very good fake, but I think it's a fake anyway. I don't know if the quality of this fake script speaks to the talent of the faker or the sad state of high level Hollywood script writing, but this thing seemed pretty real - and maybe it even contains real elements. By accident, of course.

In the fake script Lex Luthor creates a monster called The Ultimate... aka Doomsday. In the end Superman is killed battling The Ultimate, they build the Superman statue, everybody's sad, we see the Green Lantern Corps getting worried because they had hoped Superman would stand with them against the coming threat of Darkseid. See you in Justice League!

But what if Doomsday really is in the movie? According to Bleeding Cool there are character designs for the monster that kills Superman in the comics, and their sources have seen the designs. The site really hedges their bets in a way I appreciate (I've done similar):

Now, of course, much can change in the production process. This may be used purely for flashback purposes on the screen, looking at the life (and death) of Superman. It may be purely for promotional efforts to accompany the film. Or it may not make it to the final cut.

Wouldn't it be funny if this fake script was actually very similar to the real thing? What if the line between fanfic and movies were just basically erased? As above, so below.
