Via Collider interview with Zack Snyder, there will be an additional 30 minutes deleted scenes Snyder coined the Ultimate Cut to be included in the Blu-ray released of Batman V Superman : Dawn Of Justice later this year. Words are coming out from those who had watch the movies. The initial positive reaction is slowly saturated by the negative ones, especially among the film critics. Zack Snyder seems to be the one to bear the brunt of the negative reactions. From mistreatment of Superman character to those who still harbouring negative reaction towards Ben Affleck being cast as Batman. Often film makers, directors, producers, editors and studio heads and executive producers fought over the post production process behind the scene. Sometimes to a point of making life long enemies of each other. A lot of the time the final product does not necessary reflect the vision of the director, the screenwriters, producers or even the original author of the story. Batman V Superman runs for 2 hours and 32 minutes. The running time is long by any standard. To have an extra 30 minutes to be feature on a Blu-ray version indicate the film had made difficult decision editing the final product.This is not the first film nor the last that would have viewers and critics alike making a couch director decision and declare if only the film would include certain scenes that could make the story more cohesive or the character more stand out and etc. I am not excusing Zack Snyder from whatever flaws come out of this movie. Batman V Superman is far from being a bomb. The viewers rating is still on the positive side. The film has all the extra footage to make it a better movie. Judging from the interview, it seems Snyder is very frustrated with the final say in editing process. Perhaps once we see that extra 30 minutes, we can understand where he is coming from and a re-editing of the movie, taking out certain scenes, added some and do away the MPAA restrictive guideline would fare better among the critics? Just a warning to those who have not seen the movie, there might be spoiler contain in the clip. What’s your take on this? When commenting please be aware of the spoilers for those who have yet to watch the movie. Check out the interview below.
