‘DOOM’ Movie Director Reveals Which Boss Didn’t Make It Into The Film
The iconic DOOM franchise has been getting a lot of love lately, thanks in no small part to the next entry in the series DOOM Eternal – getting a reveal back at E3 2018. Thanks to the upcoming game, there’s a slightly larger spotlight on the new movie adaptation of the series, which is being directed by Tony Giglio. While there hasn’t been much word yet on what to expect in the film, Giglio did reveal that a particular iconic boss from the series won’t be making it into the movie.
In a series of tweets between the director and twitter users curious about the film, Giglio reveals what he thought about the 2005 movie adaptation, which starred Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Karl Urban. The tweet can be seen below:
Unfortunately, the Spiderdemon won't be in our film. Tried, but it didn't work out this time. Maybe in the sequel 😉 And, look, I think the 2005 film is an entertaining action film… BUT… i felt it deviated too far the game & didn't feel like a real adaptation. But it's fun.

Seen above, Tony Giglio reveals that the popular ‘Spiderdemon’ boss unfortunately won’t be skittering its way into the upcoming DOOM film, which should put those with arachnophobia at ease. That said, Giglio points out that the 2005 movie, while enjoyable as an action film, didn’t quite fit right as a movie based on the popular video game series, which leads us to believe that the right man is in charge of the direct to video/digital release adaptation. Here’s hoping that the movie does the games justice.
So, thoughts on the distinct lack of Spiderdemons in the upcoming film? Which popular enemies from the series would you like to see in the movie?
