Games Radar – Even though Zack Snyder promised a three-hour extended version of Batman v Superman on home video, there was always a slim chance it wouldn’t materialise. That butt-numbing runtime has now been confirmed by a Swedish retailer, CDON, which lists the Ultimate Edition of the movie as clocking in at 181 minutes: three hours and one minute.
According producer Charles Roven, the uncut version will be more intense, but Snyder alerted it’s not really “R” version, due the lack of nudity and gore.
While the second disc of the release is the one that includes the R-rated cut, it’s the first disc which also has some surprises in store. Two hours of them, to be exact. Yes, we’re getting a hefty 120 minutes of bonus features that’s likely to include making-ofs, artwork, commentaries and more deleted scenes. The Blu-ray is expected to arrive in July, so we’ll no doubt receive specifics on those extras sometime before then.
You can already pre-order the DVD on Amazon, but the estimate release date is set for July only.
