Doomsday is a massive special effects creature. Darkseid is not.
Darkseid has three sons if you count Grayven.
Orion will look human, but Kalibak will require prostethics and CGI for his look. He needs to be a beast. I think Darkseid needs to be taller than any human could possibly be, and larger as well. Personally, I'd like a mixture of protethics and CGI for him too.
