‘Batman vs. Superman’ Deleted Scene Reveals…Jimmy Kimmel Cameo?
Batman vs. Superman was recently revealed to be two hours and 31 minutes long, pretty lengthy for a superhero movie. But even despite that runtime, director Zack Snyder still had to trim some things out of the movie, namely an extended cameo from late night host Jimmy Kimmel. Kimmel and his guest Ben Affleck debuted the footage on last night’s post-Oscars Jimmy Kimmel Live and it seems as if Batman and Superman may have found a common enemy.
Of course Jimmy Kimmel didn’t actually make an appearance in Batman vs. Superman, but Kimmel, Affleck, Henry Cavill and Jesse Eisenberg recreated the scene from the trailer where Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne have a tense introduction at one of Lex Luthor’s parties. Except in this version, Kimmel can’t help but interrupt and drive the two superheroes crazy. How crazy? At one point, Bruce Wayne pulls Kimmel aside and says in his Batman voice, “I will rip your d— off.”
It’s actually a pretty funny bit and all the more entertaining when you realize early on that they didn’t just digitally insert Kimmel into the background of an existing scene, but they actually filmed an entirely new segment. You’ll also want to stick around for a hilarious cameo from another famous Batman, plus Kimmel’s own nemesis.
Batman vs. Superman opens in theaters on March 25.
