“Justice League” Deleted Scenes

With the “Justice League” movie now in theatres, once you’ve settled down and discussed the movie over and over again with your friends, you’ll no doubt come to the realization that there were some scenes that didn’t make it in to the theatrical cut of the film.

As is sometimes the case, footage shown in early trailers, promos and TV spots aren’t always included in the final version that gets screened in theatres. As you may have heard, according to the Wall Street Journal, Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara wanted the superhero movie to come in under two hours. And while that may seem short by some standards, the movie doesn’t suffer for it. If anything, it moves along at a good pace mostly, even feeling slow early on.

However, the two hour running time obviously required some extra editing take place, and footage we’d seen online to promote the film didn’t end up making it into what we watched on the big screen.

The following video is my attempt at pointing out some of the more obvious omissions. There are probably others, but these are the major ones I noticed after one viewing…

Let me know if you can think of any others, or what you think these omitted scenes may have revealed that we still are unsure of. The hologram? Who was Alfred talking to?

“Justice League” is in theatres now. Purchase your tickets from Fandango.

Studio interference with these movies is becoming the bane of my existence.

I’m hoping they do an extended cut for home video. I need these scenes!

Editing is becoming a lost art in modern film making. There are older films the clock in under 2 hours and yet you’re not losing needed information nor is the pacing chopped up. Everything flows it’s just tight.
I seem to see a lot of cases where important story and character information is cut out to make more room for action scenes than even the action scenes themselves are edited in a way that doesn’t allow you to see what you need to see.

There’s this lowest common denominator formula, where there has to be a tent pole scene (action piece) every so often to maintain the audience’s attention. Well the lowest common denominator of the audience anyways.

It’s quite literally all but one scene from the first trailer was cut and majority of the second trailer.
To think the extended/ultimate cut, that may or may not come, could still be shorter than the theatrical edition of BvS.

Actually Clark_Jo that brings another question to mind. Are they purposely under-cutting the theatrical releases to ensure a selling point for the DVD/Blu-Ray releases?

If you were a studio exec. wouldn’t you? Especially if you knew that almost every ticket holder would also buy the extra footage, minus torrents, you are probably adding a 70% gain to the overall net? Seems like smart business to me. Now as a consumer I hate this, but it is what it is.

If I were a studio exec. I would be more concerned about the potential angry people that won’t watch the movie once they know that is AGAIN a cut down version of what it was supposed to be. Those people are the ones that won’t buy the BRay version even though it may have 10 hours of extra footage.

Maybe every fan like us would buy the extra footage, but certainly not every ticket holder. Ultimate cuts are like 30 dollars and only available digitally or on blue ray. Even I who was dying to see the unedited version of BvS was like ‘well do I absolutely need this right now??’ I ended up buying it and admit it makes for a much better film, but it’s been hard to convince people that hated the theatrical cut to go out and buy the extended version. Not to mention the general public are usually unaware such versions exist. We know… Read more »

You would think that after the blowback from BVS that they would have just given us a film that was the length it needed to be. I saw the film last night and it is definitely rushed and has major pacing and editing issues… again. Side note: I hope for the next films in the franchise we get a director who can really get a good performance out an actor because I don’t think Snyder nor Whedon have that ability. This was evident to me by Gal Gadot being much better in WW than she was here. Not that she… Read more »

Just saw the movie I was a little saddened by the fact that Marc Mclure didn’t make the final cut and that the “ring” comment didn’t either. Overall I thought the movie was great. I’m used to looking past the CGI and suspending my disbelief so I wasn’t bothered by it. Since I had seen the comments I couldn’t help but notice the mustache clips lol. Superman was amazing in this movie! The pacing in my opinion was really good and I was not bothered by the editing one bit. So I give the movie a 8.9 out of 10

I know he was cut as the police officer, but was that not him as the prison officer then?

It seems like this is now a common trend in Hollywood to cut scenes from a movie that are used in the movie trailers. This is one movie of many that have been like this in the last few years.

I agree with MattComics that editing seems to be a lost art in a lot of movies…as it is a basic and essential part of the movie making form.

They cut the movie to a 2 hour run time so they can have more showings in the multiplexes. It will boost up the gross.

I must say though, even though it was evident that they cut some scenes, they did a better job of editing this than they did the theatrical cut for BvS.

Among some of the negative reviews there seems to be at least some kind of consensus around the idea that while they might think the movie, the effects, and the villain are weak they seem to like the team itself in terms of the characters and the actors playing off each other.

Which is funny, because other than Cavill and Ray Fisher as Cyborg, every other actor was criticized for being cast in their respective role.
Gal Gadot was too skinny and Israeli.
Ezra Miller was too young and had brown hair.
Jason Mamoa was Hawaiian and brown instead of white.
Ben Affleck… Well take your pick with that one… He got it the worst!

Just got out of the theatre. Wow. Great film. Despite its flaws it was great and enjoyable. I admit the lack of scenes shown in the trailers never made it into the final cut was kind of a letdown. But I’m hopeful for an extended edition for the Blueray disc.
But really…is This WBs idea of a standard in each of their movies now!?

I’m all in for a special Zack Snyder cut along with the Joss Wheddon cut for the Blueray/DVD Edition. Our deleted scenes might eventually pop up.
