Details have surfaced about the R-Rated Ultimate Edition for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which will include extended scenes, mainly those brutal cuts during the fight scenes, some of which will not hit theaters and will be exclusive to said edition.
BvS might sound crowded, but it actually got smaller as time went on—the PG-13 movie’s two-hour, 31-minute run time will expand for home video with an R-rated “Ultimate Edition.” The longer version will include even more brutal fight scenes, and some new characters, including a secret one played by Jena Malone, who was cut from the theatrical release. That illustrates the push and pull of trying to foreshadow so many future stories. Sometimes you throw in too much and need to pull back. “You have to get each individual movie right, and that’s been our focus,” says Warner Bros. executive Greg Silverman, one of the main architects of the DC slate. “Every movie has to be treated as if it’s the only movie—while you’re falling in love with how they’re all going to connect.”
I just hope those fierce scenes from the trailers are not cut off from the theatrical release.
Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice will blast theaters on March 25, 2016.
What do think of the R-Rated Ultimate Edition? Will you watch the film on theaters or wait for the more brutal version on DVD and Blu-Ray?
