On Thursday Warner Brothers released details regarding The Ultimate Edition of Zack Snyder’s superhero showdown between two of DC’s biggest heroes.
When Warner Brothers announced “The Ultimate Edition” would becoming to home video it was before the theatrical release of Batman v Superman and in all retrospect it was either overconfidence on there part or lack of confidence and as it turned out it had to be the latter.
When Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice: Ultimate Edition becomes available later this month on Digital HD and then later on Blu-ray it will feature not only the theatrical version we all saw, but an thirty minute extended R rated version of the movie as well.
Some of the new footage in the extended cut of the movie will feature a much longer North Africa sequence, not to mention more graphic violence during Batman’s fight during the warehouse scene, plus a different opening and ending to the movie.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice—both the theatrical and Ultimate Edition extended cut—will be available for download on Digital HD starting June 28th. The physical copy on blu-ray and DVD will be available for purchase on July 19th.
So what exactly was different in the trailer you just watched for the “Ultimate Edition” compared to trailers you saw for the theatrical release?
Clark is watching TV in Kitchen. The interview on the TV is different than what was in the Theatrical version. Superman is seen flying away from the Capital building after the explosion.
A drone firing the missile at the desert compound as Superman flies directly into the camera. Security monitor footage of Batman inside LexCorp. Voiceover and shot of an individual scratching the Bat symbol into a Lottery scratcher card.
