Batman v Superman - More Details on Deleted Scenes
With a worldwide weekend box office of over $420 million, Batman v Superman - Dawn of Justice has been watched by at least a few people who might now wonder how the Ultimate Cut will add in another 30 minutes of material. Fortunately, director Zack Snyder told Collider some more information that can now be thought about with more understanding. The really big spoilers will be avoided here but small ones will be discussed.
Regarding the censorship for the MPAA, Snyder mentions one of the early Africa scenes in which several people are shot. He says that there are far-reaching alterations. That can make sense since it's not really plausible in the theatrical version why Superman is accused of their deaths. Violence was also removed in a later action scene at the end where Batman fights two dozens of opponents in a warehouse, as well. Gotta protect that PG-13 rating.
There were also some cuts in the fight with Doomsday near the end. The last Hobbit film showed clearly that even unrealistic CGI brawls can be too much for the PG-13. Snyder mentions the end of that scene but maybe he talks about the whole film's end - it's not so clear what he means here. In case he refers to the end of the fight, everyone who saw it already knows what that could be.
But of course, all this new action doesn't add up to the total of 30 new minutes which is why there are also many plot scenes that were cut out due to pacing reasons.
Real info about plot extensions is still rare - and even contradictory since Snyder only talks about filling material around the Batman v Superman story arch while we know from an earlier statement that a whole character played by Jena Malone is missing in theaters and is part of an important, big addition that wasn't further elaborated on.
