If you haven’t seen the movie, this is a huge spoiler for you.
The deleted scene featured Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg), who at the end “Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice” warned that an unnamed “He” is coming.
Screen Rant speculated that this could mean Lex learned about DC villain Darkseid when he gained access to the Kryptonian archive.
The omitted scene, dubbed “Communion,” takes place after Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman defeat Doomsday. Movie Web wrote in the said scene, Lex was seen entering the crashed Kryptonian ship where he created Doomsday. It also showed a Metropolis SWAT team infiltrating the crashed Kryptonian ship. The soldiers advance on Lex, who is seen holding what appear to be Mother Boxes. This technology from Darkseid’s Apokolips is also used to turn Victor Stone (Ray Fisher) into Cyborg.
Screen Rant noted that the scene might look nonsense to some viewers but to longtime fans of DC comic books, it offers several hints of Darkseid. The site noted that it is clear that the ruthless New God is investigating Earth and has already “corrupted” Lex.
Meanwhile, Movie Web also reported that “Batman vs Superman” will be releasing an “R-rated Ultimate Edition” on July 16 and can already be pre-ordered on Amazon.
The site noted that details for the R-rated cut have yet to be released, but Batman vs Superman director Zack Snyder recently confirmed that DC fans will see more of Jimmy Olsen in the version. The character, which was played by Michael Cassidy, was killed off in the movie after it was discovered that he was a CIA agent while working with Lois Lane (Amy Adams) in Africa.
“Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice” premiered on theatres last Friday (March 25). “Justice League Part One” will be released on November 17th, 2017, while its part two has a debut date of June 14th, 2019.
