Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is a lengthy film, running just over two and a half hours. Though the film certainly has a ton of action-packed scenes for moviegoers to digest, not all of the scenes Zack Snyder and company shot made it into the theatrical release. Warner Bros. Pictures has released one such scene.
In case you couldn’t tell by the nature of this post, the following article and the video contained in it feature spoilers to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
In the deleted scene, which was posted on the official Warner Bros. YouTube channel, we get a new glimpse of Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor. Instead of dealing with Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, or Doomsday, we see him interacting with a mysterious demonic figure. We don’t know who this character is, but some have theorized that it is related to Darkseid, one of the big bads of the DC universe. You can view the scene for yourself below.
While Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has garnered mostly negative reviews from critics, the fan base has been more divided. Either way, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice posted some impressive numbers over the course of its first weekend in theaters, earning its place atop the list of highest-earning superhero debuts. That not only increases the likelihood that the films will continue as planned, but it also means we could eventually learn who or what the mysterious creature Lex is communicating with in this scene is.
