The theatrical cut of Justice League left a lot of footage on the cutting room floor, and while the Blu-Ray did include two of the deleted scenes, a good amount of the film has remained unseen. Thanks to Reddit user BeenTryin, we now have a few seconds of never-before-seen footage, featuring Ben Affleck’s Batman and Henry Cavill’s Superman.
The clip is from a VFX reel and shows the two DC heroes in the aftermath of the climactic fight against Steppenwolf. There’s no audio in the clip itself, but the markings on the top of the video that say “Superman CG lip sync animation” indicate that the scene was directed by Joss Whedon.
You can check out the brief Justice League clip below:
What did you think of this Batman/Superman clip from Justice League? Which of the released deleted scenes do you think should have been kept in the theatrical cut? Let us know down in the comments section below!
Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Amber Heard as Mera, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, J.K. Simmons as Jim Gordon, Connie Nielsen as Hippolyta and Ciarán Hinds as Steppenwolf.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League is now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, and DVD.
5 Things We Want To See In ‘Flashpoint’
With DC revealing that the upcoming Flash movie will be titled Flashpoint, fans are wracking their brains trying to figure out what will happen. While the story is famous for rebooting the DC universe before the New 52 initiative, the series is chop full of awesome moments. The book is full of awesome alternate versions of characters and emotional moments that ground the universe-changing story in a deeply personal core narrative. For those who don’t know, Flashpoint follows what happens after Barry Allen travels back in time to save his mother on the night of her murder. When he returns to the present, he finds that everything he’s ever known is different and he’s even lost his powers.
It might not be the perfect story to introduce people to the larger Flash universe, but I trust Geoff Johns. Now that the plot seems to be a bit more set and the film has officially added its directors, DC might have something special on its hands. If Warner Bros. chooses to introduce an alternate version of the DC Extended Universe to the bigscreen, there’s no one I’d rather explore it with than Flash. Barry Allen is the heart and soul of the DCU, so it’s only fitting to watch him try and inject some light into a dark version of his home.
