The R-rated version of Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice is now available for digital pre-order via Microsoft Movies & TV (or Film & TV in some regions) which means it’s orderable on Windows 10 devices via the Store app, on Windows phones running 8.1 and under in the Xbox Video app, and on Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles.
Called Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice Ultimate Edition, this extended R-rated version of the film includes over 30 minutes of footage that wasn’t shown in theaters as well as the original theatrical version. The Ultimate Edition is more than a collection of a few extra scenes. There were several actors, such as Jena Malone and C.T. Fletcher, who were cut entirely from the theatrical version and are now back in the film and director, Zack Snyder, has suggested in several interviews that a rather big Easter egg, which hints at future DC movies, has also been added back in.
The original version of Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice is rated PG-13 and is available separately as well for those with no interest in the Ultimate Edition.
Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice is the follow-up to Man of Steel, the first movie in the rebooted DC Comics movie continuity. While Man of Steel reintroduced Superman to audiences on the big screen, Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice expands the world established in that film by bringing in Batman, Wonder Woman, and several other superheroes from DC Comics’ popular franchises.
The film has been quite divisive with audiences with some praising it while others are calling it one of the worst movies ever made.
