Batman v Superman - Details on Ultimate Cut

Info on New Scenes and the R-Rated Content

As we reported recently, the comic film Batman v Superman - Dawn of Justice will have a longer Ultimate Cut on Blu-ray that comes with the "R" rating as opposed to the PG-13-rated theatrical version with a duration of already 2.5 hours. Now, first details emerge on what's different.

Jena Malone's role is missing in cinemas in its entirety. There was much speculation about the nature of her role but director Zack Snyder just doesn't want to tell the internet mob. At least he ruled out Batgirl and Robin. Also not present in the theatrical cut are football player Ahman Green and bodybuilder C.T. Fletcher. Secondary characters are supposed to get more screentime in the Final Cut and a few new scenes are meant to foreshadow events in future films of the DC Cinematic Universe (like Justice League in 2017, for example). Snyder explicitly mentions a big extension regarding that film but didn't want to go into details.

That leaves the question what the "R" rating brings to the table. Producer Charles Roven states that the film doesn't feature much blood or extreme scenes and that the Ultimate Cut won't change that. The MPAA looked especially at the intensity of the action scenes and when something felt too long (e.g. a long brawl or focus on a victim), that could make the difference between PG-13 and R. It doesn't seem that the film was conceptualized for a "hard R" rating and then heavily cut down to PG-13. Instead, the goal has always been PG-13, although on the upper end of that scale and the home video version will cross that border at some points.

Batman v Superman - Dawn of Justice starts in US cinemas on March 20th, 2016.
