As big a film as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is, there is bound to be a plethora of deleted scenes that didn’t make the cut. Whether or not these scenes could have helped with the missing context and plot points remains to be seen. Still, the fans have spoken, and it is the number one film at the box office, proving that it is indeed critic-proof. Fans are just itching to see what the deleted scenes are when the Ultimate Edition is released later this year. And now WB has already started their marketing campaign for the Ultimate Edition by releasing a scene that never made it into the theatrical cut.
Warning, it does dive into spoiler territory, so if you haven’t seen the film yet, then I suggest you turn back now.
This will be your final warning.

Though we are still about five months away from the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the hype machine continues to run on all cylinders. Recently, a viral marketing campaign gave us a glimpse into the world of LexCorp. Then, a new rumor popped up hinting that Wonder Woman would take place months before the events of Batman v Superman, and that Batman has been observing Wonder Woman for some time.
In the months leading up to the film’s debut, we are likely to get even more trailers, clips, and other promotional items that will crack the DC Cinematic Universe wide open. Now a new set of images have appeared online, and Henry Cavill is talking a little bit about the highly anticipated sequel, and even a “prologue.” More on the story below.
It’s a banner week for viral marketing campaigns. Following the release of the Jaws 19 trailer to celebrate the 30 Anniversary of Back To The Future, Warner Bros. has unveiled a viral marketing campaign of their own to promote the upcoming release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Their latest push takes the form of an exclusive interview between Fortune Magazine and Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). Based on what we saw in the last trailer, Eisenberg won’t be anything like the quiet Mark Zuckerberg we saw in The Social Network, instead he looks to be more ruthless and cunning, but still having that cool-guy vibe. If anything the latest profile piece will give us some insight as to what kind of Lex Luthor we will see in the film. Check it out below.
Principal photography for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice may be over, but the film is still scheduled for a March 2016 release. With a little over 11 months left until the world sees the next chapter of DC’s cinematic universe, WB has a lot of time to promote the film. We haven’t even actually seen a true teaser trailer yet. While the anticipation is killing some, WB is starting to rollout new images of some of the newer characters being introduced to the comic film franchise.
We’ve already seen the first images for Batman and Wonder Woman last year, and NOW we are getting our first look at Jesse Eisenberg as the film’s villain, Lex Luthor. Hit the jump for more.
Last week, a rumor surfaced that Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston had been secretly cast as Lex Luthor for Batman vs. Superman, signing on for a multi-film deal, but that Warner Bros. was waiting to announce the news until the actor’s AMC series ends later this month.
In a recent interview with The Boston Globe, Cranston laughed off the rumors of his casting in Zack Snyder’s sequel to this year’s Man Of Steel, stating, “This is all news to me.”
