Batman vs. Superman is opening in theaters next week, but an extended, R-rated cut of the film will be included with the DVD and Blu-ray release of the film. While many extended cuts just include a few additional minutes of footage and a couple random edits, Batman vs. Superman director Zack Snyder says his planned R-rated cut will include a whopping 30 minutes of new footage, pushing it past the three hour mark.

Not sure if you heard, but a little movie called Batman vs. Superman comes out next week. You probably don’t need much in the way of convincing at this point; As divisive as the movie has been, you’re either with it or against it at this point. But...
Like it or not, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is only weeks away, and people are getting ready to witness the ultimate smackdown in cinemas around the world. While we all know that Superman and Batman are best friends in real life, and would never get in a fight, these confrontations have happened on occasion, in Elseworld stories such as The Dark Knight Returns and The New 52. In preparation for the colossal clash, artist Steve Downer of The Difference creative studio has put together an infographic of previous super-brawls to see who has the upper hand heading into their biggest battle yet.
Just over a week will see gods and men brawl for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, firmly cementing Henry Cavill’s broody Man of Steel and Ben Affleck’s somehow-less-broody Dark Knight as our live-action DC mainstage. The cast of The Flash has their own take on who might win the day, even as the movies summarily refuse to acknowledge their existence.
There have been so many damn Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailers and teasers I’ve lost count. But this one is supposedly the final one. At least until the next one. Man I tell you, this justice is taking its sweet time dawning.
Most of the build-up to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has focused on star Ben Affleck and his new version of Batman, the introduction of Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) to the DC Movie Universe, and the direction of Zack Snyder. There hasn’t been a ton written about or with Chris Terrio, the film’s co-screenwriter who won an Oscar for his work on the script for Affleck’s Argo. But in a new interview with The Wall Street Journal, Terrio discussed his work on the film, and on the larger series of DC movies he’s contributing to.
Last week we learned that Jena Malone’s secret role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice had been cut from the theatrical release, though her scene (which is presumably brief) will be restored for the Ultimate Edition on Blu-ray and DVD. But you won’t have to wait until that version hits shelves to find out who Malone is playing in Zack Snyder’s superhero epic, since it looks like Warner Bros. has accidentally spilled the beans.
As the new Captain America: Civil War trailer opens, an roomful of superheroes watch footage of an alien invasion that decimated New York City.
It’s only been four years since Christopher Nolan concluded his Dark Knight trilogy, so when Zack Snyder announce Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, there were some understandable rumors that Christian Bale might be reprising his superhero role. Since Snyder’s film effectively reboots Batman, Bale reprising his role as the caped crusader was never really plausible — but the director did consider giving Bale a different role in the film.
Ever since Warner Bros. revealed that first promo image of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman at Comic-Con a couple of years ago, we’ve been anxiously waiting for our chance to see her on the big screen. The trailers have only gotten us more excited, as Gadot’s superhero looks to be one of the most interesting things about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. And although she’s making her debut in a movie about two other iconic superheroes, Gadot wants fans to know that Wonder Woman isn’t there to support those guys or service their story.
