The extended cut also hopes lớn address the complaints from viewers of the theatrical cut along the way, but does it succeed? check out our các mục of scene details in the Ultimate Edition to lớn see how it compares lớn the original edition, & judge for yourself!

Putting the "R" in Africa

One of the biggest additions to the extended cut is the additional minutes added to lớn the “Africa” subplot. The main change here is the fact that we’re given knowledge that the cameraman hanging out with Lois Lane is in fact Jimmy Olsen, who quickly meets a gruesome end after his character"s reveal. The opening scene is also expanded upon, giving more credence to the idea that siêu nhân is being framed for the murder of several inhabitants of the war-torn landscape of Nairomi, Africa . In the theatrical cut, this scene was something of a mess, moving forward into the movie’s main runtime but not giving enough information into why Lois was investigating the deaths or how, in fact, they implicated dũng sĩ in the transgressions. Here, we’re given a good look into not only how the people were killed at the hand of Luthor’s hitman, KGBeast, but also how anh hào was seen as someone to be blamed: the bodies were horrifically burned with the use of a flamethrower, as if by Clark’s heat vision rather than the experimental bullets that were actually used.

Alongside this subplot, an entirely new character was introduced into the extended edition with “Kahina Ziri” (Wunmi Mosaku). Kahina is understandably heartbroken at the loss of her family in the attack & believes that siêu anh hùng is lớn blame, testifying lớn the United States’ Senate about her ordeal. This helps build the case against Superman and eventually leads khổng lồ his testimony in front of the committee, which was unfortunately cut short by Luthor’s bomb hidden in Wally’s wheelchair. As Kahina feels guilt over her part in the framing of Superman, Luthor’s goon manages to lớn push her in front of an oncoming train, silencing her permanently before she can testify to Superman’s innocence. In the theatrical cut, this buildup and subplot for Lois Lane was, quite frankly, confusing, so the extended cut does give us a more intricate look into how Lex’s plan worked exactly & what it meant for siêu anh hùng in the eyes of the public, through the character of Ziri. Also, we got a cool scene at the beginning of the extended edition involving hero flying through some drones, destroying them in a flashy display of his powers.

The numerous added scenes thrown in for Clark Kent helped to lớn paint the picture of his life in the film better, giving viewers more insight into his state of mind throughout. Aside from witnessing the testimony of Ziri, as we mentioned earlier, hero is shown traveling to lớn Gotham đô thị directly to get a better understanding of what the people there think of Batman. While talking with citizens of an apartment complex that once was the residence of Kahina, Clark learns of the average person’s fear of Batman & how they view this “Darker Knight” through ordinary glasses. Seen as something of a grizzled monster, an old man tells Kent lớn not be out after dark should he encounter the Batman và face his wrath, even though another tenant informs him that the Bat only punishes those worthy of his judgement. This is done in a particularly clever scene where the older tenant scratches out the bat symbol on a lottery card, which was a neat reveal.

While in Gotham, Clark also encounters the wife và young son of a criminal whom Batman had branded with the Bat symbol earlier. This sequence not only played into further exploring Luthor’s plans for pitting the two titans against one another by orchestrating the deaths of those branded by the Batman in prison, it showed Clark’s humanity in connecting with the widow và fatherless son. A HUGE addition showcasing the "lighter" side of superman was that, following the detonation of the bomb that destroyed the Senate, he is shown rescuing several civilians & bringing them khổng lồ rescue workers for aid. It’s a much needed scene to get the point across that siêu anh hùng is a man for others, & it’s kind of shocking that it was removed in the first place. Kent is also shown calling Ma Kent at one point; unsure of his path, he gets words of encouragement that go beyond “You don’t owe anyone anything.” These scenes may be a small part of the overall runtime but they do add a lot to lớn the character of Superman & Clark Kent along the way.

Aside from the character beats that were added into the movie with the extended edition, perhaps the most shocking moment was near the end with Lex Luthor “communing” with the, now revealed, villain Steppenwolf. Steppenwolf is a horrifying residence of Apokolips & is but one of the hints that harken the arrival of Darkseid & his minions in the upcoming DC Cinematic Universe. Following this scene, when Lex Luthor is brought khổng lồ prison khổng lồ await trial after creating the quái thú of Doomsday, & subsequently killing the Man of Steel, Batman pays Luthor a visit and threatens to lớn brand him with his patented “Bat Iron”. While this scene was in the original cut, we’re given a nice Easter egg of Luthor’s confidence in “beating the rap” by pleading insanity. Wayne is able to turn the tables around by letting Lex know that he plans on dropping him straight into Arkham Asylum where some “friends” will be waiting for him. A hint that a Lex Luthor/Joker team up may happen at some point the future perhaps?

Aside from this, the long-rumored role of Jena Malone is revealed as Jenet Klyburn, a laboratory technician who, in the comics, worked for S.T.A.R. Labs. This could potentially be pointing toward her inclusion in the upcoming films of the DC Universe, specifically Cyborg, considering his ties lớn the established lab. Jenet helps Lois to discover the origins of the bullet created by Luthor, but ultimately this scene doesn’t add a ton lớn the overall story. Funny how, for the longest time, folks were thinking that Jena was going to lớn be Barbara Gordon, a.k.a. Batgirl/Oracle, but the extended edition showed us otherwise.

While there are some additional minutes thrown in for good measure that were cut for time, & rightfully so considering the overall runtime of the feature, the extended edition is worthwhile if you loved the original theatrical cut but wanted a bit more meat added to the bones.
