Batman Sends Lex To Arkham In ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice Ultimate Edition’


Warning – This article contains Spoilers.

In the last week, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice went from a heavily controversial film to receiving almost unanimous praise, and that dramatic change in tone is due to the unexpected early release of ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice Ultimate Edition‘ on Flixster and CinemaNow. Since the momentary “leak,” countless fans were able to legally purchase and watch the film weeks earlier than WB had intended, including some of Heroic Hollywood’s own. From the repair to the lackluster pacing, to the restoration of the roles played by Jena Malone and Dan Amboyer, fans have found a fantastic film hidden away in the rough film that Warner Brothers releaved earlier this year. But of all the revelations to come to light one seems to stand out most, the reveal that Batman has had Lex Luthor sent to Gotham’s infamous Arkham Asylum and possibly tying the film directly into the upcoming highly anticipated DC film Suicide Squad, which is due later this summer.

The new scene comes actually as an extension of the ending confrontation between Batman and Lex Luthor at the end of the film.

In the new scene, Luthor reveals to Batman that he knows his identity, to which Batman has the perfect reply:

Lex: “Oh, Look at us. This is how it all CAVES in. Civilization on the WANE, MANNERS out the window. But, who would believe me? I’m insane. Not even fit to stand trial.”

Batman:“We have hospitals that treat the mentally ill with compassion, but that’s not where you’re going.”

“I’ve arranged to have you transferred to Arkham Asylum in Gotham. I still have some friends there. And they’re expecting you.”

Now its worth noting that although Amanda Waller recruits Task Force X aka The Suicide Squad from Belle Reve, some of the members of the team are transferred from Arkham to that prison at the beginning of the film, most notably being Harley Quinn. While it doesn’t take much for fans to put this connection together, it could also point to the previous rumors of Lex Luthor having a minor cameo in the upcoming film to actually being true.

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice Ultimate Edition‘ will be available on Digital HD June 28 and on Blu-ray July 19.

    There are people out there who still don’t want spoilers from the Ultimate Cut, putting probably its biggest revelation in the headline is worth reconsidering.

    Lex: “Oh, Look at us. This is how it all caves in. Civilization on the Wayne Manors out the window. But, who would believe me? I’m insane. Not even fit to stand trial.”

    It shouldn’t be transcribed that way. It’s word play which is him telling Bruce he knows who he is and always has.

    “This is how it all CAVES in. Civilization on the WANE, MANNERS out the window.”

    Unanimous praise? Nobody seen the ultimate cut of the movie but DC fans lol and they were already praising the film.

      A LOT of people, including myself, saw the Ultimate Cut when it was mistakenly allowed for streaming by CinemaNow & UltraViolet earlier this week if you had pre-ordered the movie. It’s a superior movie than the one released and completely understand why Zack Snyder completely objected to the studio cutting up his original 3 hour movie. The Studio Heads should’ve left it as is, instead of butchering 30 minutes off the movie. In my estimation all of the editing and story line problems are solved with the original directors cut.

        yes dc fans as i said lmaooooo no critics randomly went searching for the ultimate cut expect you guys not one critic or anybody BUT you dc fans have seen the ultimate cut

          I’ve never seen someone try so hard to make a point and yet fail so miserably. You could save yourself some time and just admit that you wanted the movie to fail.

          • Daquan Harris

            I don’t care if this movie failed or not lmao I’m already in suicide squad mindset the movie already failed when it put 3 A list superheroes together and failed to gross not a billion but not even 900 million

          • H.I McDunnough

            You care so little that you’ve researched the box office stats…..?

          • Daquan Harris

            I didn’t have to researcg box office stats when every news page and comic book page has reported them lol

          • H.I McDunnough

            That’s like saying “I don’t have to look up the spelling or definition of words……. They’re all right there in every dictionary” Good luck with that.
