People are saying the numbers are low but with a starting Box Office of $160-170 Million Domestic and $254 Worldwide is a pretty strong opening for a film that was majorly panned by many critics and fans alike.
In a major stunning move Warner Brothers themselves have released a cut scene from the film and also announced a mid July 2016 release of the film on DVD/Blu-Ray as well.
Here is the scene below:
The official release date is July 16 with it being called the
Ultimate Cut with more scenes and spoke to
Collider.com about it.
“We call it the Ultimate Cut because to me it’s a deeper dive into that world and there are storylines in there that get fleshed out by the longer version,” Snyder says. “I would say that we didn’t really take out much of the Superman/Batman story because I felt like, you know that’s kind of the movie, but there was some sort of interstitial stuff that surrounds the story, that kind of finishes some of the ideas that we trimmed back and I think that’s what you get. There’s a little bit of action, there’s a little bit of violence that we trimmed out for the MPAA that we put back. The Batman warehouse rescue, there’s a couple shots of Doomsday that were too intense. Then there’s a little bit longer ending, sort of the ending sequence, and the opening of the movie, the North Africa sequence is really much different. It was in there until very recently, so all of it’s finished. It was really just a function of time, to be honest. Because the movie’s long now, long-ish—I don’t think it’s long, but when you get over two and a half hours the studio starts getting nervous. I’m not JamesCameron who’s like ‘No it’s three hours, suck it!’, which is cool by the way. I just wanted to try and get it to a length that is work-able.”
Now just like any comic book fan that I was in the past I was not all that excited when I had heard that Ben Afflek had been cast as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Many upon many of like minded individuals felt the same and there were even petitions to have him removed from the cast.
Being a huge movie fan of any genre of film I was very excited to see the trailer that was shown today that was at the San Diego Comic Con, more of this to follow in further updates as well as it continues.
With the trailer honestly only a few hours old there has already been complaints about Batman's suit--well for me if you are battling someone like Superman then you would need a suit like this and have it made of KryptoniteSo above from left to right we have:
Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman
Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman
