The much talked about extended version of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is coming to blu-ray next month (along with the regular theatrical release) and the trailer Warner Bros. released for it shows off a bunch of new footage that makes it look like an entirely different film:
Honestly, this is a damn great trailer, and has me interested to see how the new version of the film changes things. The Ultimate Edition is going to launch on Blu-Ray on July 19, 2016, with the digital copy of the film landing on June 28th. Below you can see all the special features coming bundled on the disc that will take you far deeper into the movie’s mythos and how it was made:
Prepare for war when “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” arrives onto Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital HD. The extended cut will be available on all Blu-ray formats and Digital HD.
In “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” 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.
“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition” features an extended cut of the film which includes 30 more minutes of story and action not seen in theaters. The extended cut is rated R.
“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, 3D Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack and Standard Definition 2-Disc DVD contain the following special features:
Uniting the World’s Finest
Gods and Men: A Meeting of Giants
The Warrior, The Myth, The Wonder
Accelerating Design: The New Batmobile
Superman: Complexity & Truth
Batman: Austerity & Rage
Wonder Woman: Grace & Power
Batcave: Legacy of the Lair
The Might and the Power of a Punch
The Empire of Luthor
Save the Bats
Frankly, I’m surprised they don’t have any features that look ahead to the future of DC’s cinematic universe. With Suicide Squad hitting in just a few months, and Wonder Woman/Justice League next year, it seems like a missed opportunity. Regardless, there’s still quite a bit coming with this Ultimate Edition of Batman v. Superman. Will you be picking it up?
