Doom creators id Software have officially responded to Doom Annihilation's bland teaser trailer by saying that they are not involved in the project in any way. The confirmation comes directly from the official DOOM game Twitter profile.

It's safe to say that the first trailer for the upcoming "direct to video" film Doom Annihilation didn't really go well with the fans of the Doom franchise. 

At the moment, the trailer has more than 8.2K dislikes with 746 likes and finding just one positive comment would be like searching a needle in a haystack.

The teaser is pretty generic-looking and if it didn't have Doom name slapped on it, you would probably think it's just another low-budget sci-fi film.

Also, the Doomguy is completely missing from the film and the story focuses on a group space of marines as they respond to a distress call from a base on a Martian moon, only to discover that demonic creatures have overrun the base and are threatening to create hell on Earth.

Of course, many Doom fans started to turn to id Software for questions about the quality of the trailer and id Software quickly responded by saying that they aren't involved with the upcoming film at all.

The confirmation was tweeted by official DOOM Twitter and was retweeted by id Software. It's probably the most passive-aggressive neutral statement you'll see today and it perfectly describes id Software's thoughts about the project.

However, Doom fans didn't take the official reveal lighty. Some commented that Doom film should be about an "angry guy in a demonic suit who kills demons for 1.50 hours", while others are remembering the first film that apparently "looks great" when compared to Doom Annihilation.

All in all, it looks like we'll have to wait for who knows how long before someone decided to make a proper Doom film.

The first film named Doom, included Dwayne Johnson, Karl Urban and Rosamund Pike and it currently stands at 34 out of 100 on Metacritic, and it's safe to say that Doom Annihilation is a serious contented for an even lower score once it releases in Autumn 2019.
