Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice came out in theatres on Friday, and already, DC and Warner Bros. are releasing deleted scenes from the film because that makes sense, right? Answer: no, and neither does said deleted scene which is basically just yet another scene too complicated for most moviegoers to understand, and a vague stretch for even die hard comic book fans to explain.
The scene in question, features Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor, presumably following the final battle between Doomsday and the Holy Trinity, swimming in that weird bloody, goopy Kryptonian bath water, as a group of soldiers descend into the ship to arrest him. Briefly though, they see who or what it is that Luthor is speaking with, a holographic alien/monster that doesn’t look too happy about what’s happened.
Check out the deleted scene, titled “Communion,” below:
Now the mystery character looks to be holding three Mother Boxes, which in the DC comics are all-powerful living computers created by the New Gods, which the iconic villain Darkseid also happens to be a part of. It’s unclear who the character is, although there do seem to be two prevailing theories at this point.
The first is that he could be some form of Steppenwolf, a general of Darkseid in the comics, or he could also be Yuga Khan, Darkseid’s father in the comics. It probably would have added some context for Luthor’s arc honestly, had it been included, since he just starts spouting off about a devil coming from the skies at the end of the film, with no warning or set up. I guess that was this. But just like the rest of the film, it feels slightly rushed and too-clever-for-its-own-good. Whatever.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is in theatres everywhere now.
