The ‘Doom‘ franchise has built up quite a few iconic enemies over the years and now director Tony Giglio has shared at least one which won’t be making the cut. His upcoming film will likely resonate more with fans than the 2005 release which starred Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, but there will still be something missing when it arrives.

The Spiderdemon. Yes, the end boss of the original ‘Doom’ as well as the 2016 remake of the game won’t be appearing in the new 2019 movie adaptation. Here is what Giglio had to say:

For the visual effects lovers out there, Giglio did share two details on how the movie will look which is likely why we won’t be seeing the Spiderdemon in this outing.


The movie is slated to have a home release, and if it ends up being a hit, we can hope that the budget will be ramped up for a sequel that could include the iconic Spiderdemon. That being said, it is quickly much clearer as to why it won’t be in the film.

I’ve been holding out for a trailer to say anything one way or another, but with everything I’m hearing, I can only hope that ‘Doom’ will at least get a limited theatrical run as well since this sounds like something that might deserve to be seen on the big screen.

Are you annoyed that we won’t see the Spiderdemon in ‘Doom’? Does the heavy use of practical effects and likely limited budget have this choice make sense to you? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
