Watch: ‘Batman v Superman’ Deleted Scene

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” just wrapped its first weekend at the box office, and Warner Bros. is already teasing the release of the superhero film’s director’s cut.

The 44-second video clip, which previews a scene entitled “Communion,” shows a band of soldiers invading the Kryptonian scout ship and huddling around a goop-emerged Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg), who appears to be engaging in some form of communion with an unidentified alien creature. The full scene will be included in the R-rated director’s cut of the film, dubbed the “Ultimate Edition,” which will feature 30 minutes of extra footage and will become available after the film’s theatrical run.

Starring Ben Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman, the latest Zack Snyder-directed superhero saga — which merges the worlds of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman — grossed $166.1 million over Easter weekend. This figure was $4 million less than Warner Bros. originally projected for the film’s opening weekend. Overseas, “Batman v Superman” launched to $254 million in 66 markets, contributing to a massive $424.1 million global opening — the fourth-biggest in history.

Watch the deleted scene above.

    Ya more of this less car chases and explosion’s next time.

    Got a chance to watch it a 2nd time non Imax(i’ll refrain from my critique of imax for action movies)

    Very dense and fun, since I did a total self black out other than the clips they released, I didn’t even know
    Mr. Zimmer did the music the first time I saw it very intelligent and sophisticated was my initial impression….love the solo violin in foreshadow to the Dark one…..

    …and Henry’s subtle expression of Superman’s struggles is slightly overwhelmed by the pace and power of the imagery. But was perfectly combined when attempting to control his rage on the tower.

    Deadpool get the amazing Box Office even for the R rated, rather than this movie wants to keep in “safe zone” even when they end up with PG-13.
