Loved Batman v Superman? Then this should be music to your ears. Didn’t love it? Well, it’s not like you were going to buy it anyway.
The new edition of the polarizing film sees an additional 30 minutes of extra footage added in, much of which is teased in the trailer. The new footage is expected to introduce new supporting characters (including Jena Malone‘s character, who was cut from the theatrical edition). It is also expected to flesh out existing storylines and add more character and action moments for Ben Affleck’s Batman and Henry Cavill’s Superman. Also of note is an extended and completely different “North Africa” sequence — a part of the film that many viewers found confusing within the theatrical release.
It remains to be seen if any added scenes can make Jesse Eisenburg’s Lex Luthor a little less manic and Joker-like.
