‘Batman v Superman’ Deleted Scene Teases Director’s Cut

Darkseid's Device Mother Boxes

Now that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice theatrical cut is out, Warner Bros. is already teasing the release of the superhero film director’s cut, which is coming this summer.

The video is hosted on the official Warner Bros. YouTube page and is titled “Communion,” and it seems to take place after the movie’s climactic battle. If you haven’t seen it yet, proceed at your own risk.

In it, Jesse Eisenberg‘s Lex Luthor is standing in a puddle of goop and facing a giant, howling gray monster. The horned oddball also has some strange-looking cubes near him, which could be otherworldly devices associated with the Darkseid mythos called Mother Boxes… The creature looks a lot like DC character Yuga Khan, father of mega-supervillain Darkseid. Given that Darkseid is widely believed to be a major figure in the upcoming sequels and spinoffs from Batman v Superman, that makes a little bit of sense. Or maybe it’s supposed to be Darkseid, himself? He doesn’t look like the traditional depiction of the guy, but who knows. (Vulture)

Fearing the actions of a god-like super hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before. Starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, and Holly Hunter, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is directed by Zack Snyder, written by Chris Terrio from David S. Goyer‘s screenplay, and is scheduled to open March 25, 2016!
