“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” set for release on March 25, may be one of the most-anticipated movies universally, but that hasn’t stop the Indian censor board from chopping off bits that may offend the Indian audience. It is understood that the infamous scene that got cut from the film features a bare lower back.
The Indian censor board recently upset many superhero fans by cutting many admittedly raunchy, yet pivotal, scenes from “Deadpool.” This practice has in fact been a curse to many Hollywood films being screened in India, including the latest 007 installation “Spectre.”
The latest victim of the censor board, DC’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” has comparatively been lucky, considering only one scene was deleted from the full-length feature film. There are no detailed descriptions of the scene available, so the bare lower back scene still remains a mystery.
It could be from a sex scene between Superman aka Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) and Lois Lane (Amy Adams) or from an intimate moment between Batman aka Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) and Diana Prince aka Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot). There is also no guarantee that the vulgar display will be a tasteful one, taken from the context of a love scene. There has been more than one DC villain who enjoyed mooning in a room full of Superheroes.
Meanwhile, Jimmy Kimmel, who is a close friend of Ben Affleck, was seen in a hilarious “deleted clip” from the movie. Henry Cavill and Jessie Eisenberg, who plays Lex Luthor in the film, were also part of this clip, where Kimmel revealed to a roomful of people that Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne are actually Superman and Batman.
The clip ended with a proverbial “F You” to Kimmel’s nemesis Matt Damon. As fans of the talk show will know, Kimmel and Damon have had a long-running schtick, where they hate each other. Watch the riotous video here:
