We know an R-rated home video release of Batman Vs. Superman is on the way (aka the Ultimate Edition), and now it’s learned the theatrical version may feature a bum shot (our best guess).
India has censored the PG-13 rated version of Batman Vs. Superman citing the reason as a scene features “a fleeting nude figure.”
The India board of censors noted some of the scenes weren’t suitable for younger viewers (via cbldf.org):
The CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification) was very keen that the film be seen by youngsters. But some of the content isn’t completely suitable for viewing by underage audiences. While the violence is done in the spirit of a comicbook adventure, the film was rated UA (suitable for underage viewers accompanied by an adult), with just one visual cut… of a fleeting nude figure.
India recently censored Deadpool as well.
“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” has a March 25, 2016 release starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, with Callan Mulvey, Holly Hunter as Senator Finch and Tao Okamoto as Mercy Graves. “Justice League” is also to follow directed by Zack Snyder.
It’s been nearly two years since Superman’s (Henry Cavill) colossal battle with Zod (Michael Shannon) devastated the city of Metropolis. The loss of life and collateral damage left many feeling angry and helpless, including crime-fighting billionaire Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck). Convinced that Superman is now a threat to humanity, Batman embarks on a personal vendetta to end his reign on Earth, while the conniving Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) launches his own crusade against the Man of Steel.
