Its direct to DVD which is a red flag in my book.
I also heard some "controversy" where Doomguy is actually Doomgirl, but I reckon that's hearsay.
EDIT: Just read the article, and the film is supposed to star a squad of UAC marines. Sounds like a Spiritual Successor to the 2005 film without the weird DNA bullshit.

Oh yeah the MC being female. I checked r/doom and all I could do is roll my eyes.
Being straight-to-dvd is a thing and it could be an incredibly piss poor attempt #2, this time focusing too much on hell and demons and barely anything else (complete opposite of the 2005 film).
Still, I think it could be worthwhile. It was delayed because they wanted to fix/improve on sfx for hell scenes.
And who knows, if it does end up successful, it could open up for a big budget DOOM movie but I'm getting too hopeful.
Edit: oh yeah THIS

Yeah ... I'm not optimistic about it.
Oh... uhhhhh... uhm.
I kinda take back my words now. A part of me clings but honestly? Yeah...

Looks... like a fan movie? No post production effects.
Could be a fun Netflix evening but nothing of note. And it does look like it was filmed at the Doctor Who Quarry.
I checked the DOOM twitter and they say NOTHING about this. Edit: they made an official statement stating no involvement in the movie after making this post.
Is it really this easy to get the rights to make a movie adaptation of video games? I mean they must've gotten the green light from Bethesda or something.
In the end, it will be inconsequential. Myself tho I'm just neutral about this now. Nothing positive or negative.

...Well, it would explain the awkward style of the trailer.
"Doom Slayers Wanted"? Seriously?
Preparing for actually endorsed film, praying for fan film.
Also, now I want a Suitless% speedrun of DOOM (2016).
Well treat DOOM reboot like any other game and exploit the shit out of it! Gawd I love exploits like this in games...
I still remember watching that no-hev suit run of classic Half-Life.

They actually DID say something.
Ah yeah, that was before they made the official statement. Edited my post
Yeah, the fact they said they're not involved is another red flag.
This reeks of a tax write off scheme
I just wanted to say, this wait for more DOOM Eternal stuff, new information and gameplay videos or even a trailer, is making me anxious. My asshole is clenched super tight! Patience is a virtue and all that but still.
I really hope they start showing off new stuff after RAGE 2 (2 months!) releases.
isn't this just a license renewal like say the Fantastic Four films?
Or Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 HD? Like that?
I think it is most likely such case. Add what invincibleasshole said about it too.
I still ask what does Universal gain out of this. There is no real demand for a new DOOM movie, most fans didn't want this (and there's of course the certain kind of peeps objecting to female MC, the usual) and it is straight-to-video, a home release.
I mean yeah I know it's an ashcan copy but Universal doesn't know what to do with the film rights and is doing this just to keep it and let it rot until it's that time again (give another 14 years, the first film was released on October in 2005).
They're doing this out of spite? Some other nebulous reason?
Maybe I'm overthinking it too much. I'm sorry, I'm just confused by this. I'm open to explanations, theories, whatever if I got anything wrong.

Maybe it's some kind of misguided attempt to win a group of female fans over to the Doom franchise?
I somehow doubt it, given how some of them vocally complained about the violence, which is Completely Missing the Point.
NO YOU FOOL WHAT HAVE YOU DONE
Whoops too late! Now every alternate universe Doom Slayer is of different ethnicity, gender and such
Still waiting for my Phobosguy skin :P
Woohoo! DOOM Eternal stuff for E3! For those who do not want to click the link, tweet simply reads "DOOM Eternal" and is a response to Bethesda's tweet about appearing on this year's E3

Hope we get a release date.
DOOM Eternal gameplay running on this Google Stadia (should it be crossposted to that thread?)
Also... Doomguy grunts? NOOOO I WANT HIM SILENT!
Oh yeah one more thing: it looks like Mars exploded and turned into a massive hellish portal vortex thingy
Edit: and just when it was getting even better... I'm frantically clawing at my screen begging for more.

I'd rather wait for E3 (or Quake Con) for more gameplay, because I like 'em crisp details, man.
Also, holy crap, two side-mounted micro-missile launchers as the alt-fire for the machine cannon?!
And the platforming looks hella fun.
When is E3?
