Dead­pool the ex­tended cut. We do get more in­ves­tiga­tive jour­nal­ism on the parts of Clark Kent (looking into the Bat-vig­i­lante in Gotham) and Lois Lane. Th­ese scenes do help the overall story make more sense and are not a waste – they’re just not that ex­cit­ing.

In one im­por­tant ad­di­tion, we learn why Su­per­man was un­able to see a bomb sit­ting right next to him in a piv­otal scene, thanks to a tip from Jena Malone’s char­ac­ter, a role that was cut out of the orig­i­nal film.

This is not to say that the Bat­man v Su­per­man ex­tended-cut view­ing ex­pe­ri­ence is a dis­ap­point­ment. All the things that made it vis­ually spectacular are there.

And then there’s Dooms­day. Watch­ing this movie again re­minds the au­di­ence of the gutsy call to kill Su­per­man, some­thing that shouldn’t have been a sur­prise be­cause, well, Dooms­day was in the movie, and he’s a monster most fa­mous for killing Su­per­man in the comics. It re­mains a movie that wasn’t as bad as ev­ery­one said it was, and that was not nearly as good as it could have been. If you liked Bat­man ver­sus Su­per­man and want more, well, you’re go­ing to have to wait for Jus­tice League. – Wash­ing­ton Post
