The PG-13 version of Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is currently playing in theaters everywhere, but the R-Rated cut of the movie is still a few months away. That version will include 30 more minutes of never-before-seen footage, plus a few extra mystery characters who didn’t make it into the final cut, such as the one who was played by Jena Malone.

In a recent interview with Collider at the press junket for the movie, Snyder discussed what’s going to be in the “Ultimate Cut” and why he decided to make one, plus why the deleted scenes weren’t in the PG-13 version of the movie:

“We call it the Ultimate Cut because to me it’s a deeper dive into that world and there are storylines in there that get fleshed out by the longer version… I would say that we didn’t really take out much of the Superman/Batman story because I felt like, you know that’s kind of the movie, but there was some sort of interstitial stuff that surrounds the story, that kind of finishes some of the ideas that we trimmed back, and I think that’s what you get.”


Whether or not these scenes improve the movie remains to be seen, but here’s hoping that they do. One of the issues that I had with the movie was its pacing, so there’s a chance that a few additional scenes could improve it. What do you guys think?

    Looking forward to this.

    My hope for the r-rated is at least the scene of batman stealing the kryptonite from Lex being shown.
    I know “more action”. But yes more action. Not that the movie lacks, but that the movie lacks action interspaced in the movie. Like 95% of the action is in the end of the movie.
    Beyond the batmobile chase scene the rest of the movie is basically talking. Could use another scene to break it up.

      Exactly my thoughts. I loved the movie but when all I saw was the carnage and a baterang, I felt robbed.

    I’m looking more froward to this than I was with the cinematic cut
