Film - Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice Deleted Scene

Bat v supes Dawn of Justice

Warner Bros have officially released a deleted scene from Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice...

The studio says the scene, which features Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor, is part of the R-rated director’s cut of the film that will be available on the Blu-ray edition when that eventually comes out. The MPAA gave the extended director’s cut an R-rating back in February whereas the cinema release was given a PG-13.

Talking of the cinema release, IMAX Corporation announced that the film opened with a record-setting $36 million on 945 IMAX screens globally - the widest-ever day-and-date debut for an IMAX release - resulting in the best-ever worldwide launch for a film outside the summer and Christmas play periods, as well as the highest opening for a March release, surpassing Alice in Wonderland (with $15.3 million). Overall, Batman v Superman now stands as the third-largest global opening for IMAX behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens - which earned $47.5 million during opening weekend - and Jurassic World (with $44.1 million).

The deleted scene released by Warner Bros shows Luthor at the heart of the Kryptonian ship from Man Of Steel with some kind of alien (Steppenwolf or Darkseid? Speculation is rife), cubes and a weird primordial pool which later leads to the creation of the Doomsday creature that fights Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman.

Fearing the actions of Superman are left unchecked, Batman takes on the man of steel, while the world wrestles with what kind of a hero it really needs. With Batman and Superman fighting each other, a new threat, Doomsday, is created by Lex Luthor. It's up to Superman and Batman to set aside their differences along with Wonder Woman to stop Lex Luthor and Doomsday from destroying Metropolis.

In case you've been living under a rock, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, stars Oscar winner Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne and Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent in the characters' first big-screen pairing, as well as Oscar nominees Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne and Oscar winners Jeremy Irons and Holly Hunter with Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince.

Snyder directed from a screenplay written by Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer, based on characters from DC Comics, including Batman, created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger, and Superman, created by Jerry Siegel andJoe Shuster. The film is produced by Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder, with Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns andDavid S. Goyer serving as executive producers.
