A few months ago, after it was confirmed that an Ultimate Edition cut of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be released on Blu-ray and DVD formats, rumors spread that Warner Bros. was considering a theatrical re-release as well. With the Digital HD version of this R-rated Ultimate Edition debuting Tuesday, June 28, it seems fans will actually get to see this extended cut on the big screen for just one night only. If that wasn’t enough, we also have a new Ultimate Edition trailer with even more new footage.
Earlier today, an alert was sent out from WBTickets.com, confirming that the one-night-only theatrical event for Batman v Superman is happening. The tickets will be free, but fans must sign up at the website above. The event will take place in 12 cities, Austin, TX, Chicago, Columbus, Ohio, Houston, Burbank, California, Hollywood, California, two separate New York City locations, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Francisco and Washington D.C. Take a look at the statement below about this theatrical event.
“As a thank you to all of the fans, Zack and the filmmakers would like to invite you to a special theatrical screening of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition. This one night only experience will be on Monday, June 27th in select cities. Reserve your seats now as space is limited.”
In related news, a new trailer was released for the Ultimate Edition, which includes more footage from the 30 minutes of additional scenes that weren’t seen in the theatrical cut. One of these new scenes features Batman confronting Lex Luthor in prison, where Lex tells The Dark Knight, “This is where it all caves in.” There have been rumors that, in the Ultimate Edition, Lex Luthor knows that Bruce Wayne is in fact Batman, but we don’t know exactly if that’s the case or not.
In even more related news, Funko finally released its Doomsday Pop Heroes action figure, but if you’re looking to pick this up, you’ll have to go to San Diego next month. This 6-inch “super-sized Pop” will be a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive. Take a look at the new trailer for the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition, along with a photo of the Doomsday Funko Pop action figure below.
