The Reason Batman v Superman Released That Deleted Scene, According To Zack Snyder

 On the Monday following the opening weekend of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Warner Bros did something unprecedented: they released a deleted scene from the movie online. And not like a tiny scene of Clark Kent looking for his glasses, but a major scene that revealed an honest to goodness plot point. Titled "Communion" the scene saw a SWAT team invading the Kryptonian ship to find Lex Luthor standing in front of a demonic creature holding three mother boxes. We've since learned that the creature is Steppenwolf, a general of the armies of Apokolips, the uncle of Darkseid, and the main villain of the Justice League movie. That's a major scene to reveal on what seemed like a whim, but director Zack Snyder has opened up about why that scene was released in such a way.

As it turns out, Batman is way stronger than he looks.
