Jimmy Kimmel Spoils Batman V Superman In Hysterical, Bogus Deleted Scene

We can always rely in Jimmy Kimmel Live to keep us updated with the latest and greatest news when it comes to superheroes. His show provided us with some of our first glimpses of Captain America: Civil War, and even Ben Affleck took to the show to premiere one of the most recent Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice trailers months ago. Now, with only a few weeks left until Batman V Superman finally hits theaters, Jimmy Kimmel has decided to show a hilariously bogus deleted scene that supposedly didn’t make the film. Check it out below.

The clip starts with Ben Affleck’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote the upcoming release of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. He gets to talk with Jimmy Kimmel about the project, and Kimmel soon reveals that he himself had a small role in the film. Although it won’t make it to the final film, they decide to play it for the audience, which turns out to be a delightful reenactment of the scene we have all seen in the trailers where Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne finally confront each other at Lex Luthor’s party.


However, unlike the scene from the trailer, the confrontation quickly turns ridiculous as Jimmy Kimmel arrives to point out that Clark Kent is definitely Superman. He asks Bruce Wayne to take a picture of him with the Man of Steel, and when Wayne holds the camera up to his face he realizes that the Gotham billionaire is in fact the Dark Knight. Kimmel begins to make more and more of a scene, joined by numerous cameos ranging from Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor to Will Arnett a.k.a Lego Batman. Eventually Clark Kent gets so fed up with the whole ordeal that he throws Kimmel into space, only to have him land on Mars and found by Matt Damon’s Mark Watney from The Martian.


It’s an undoubtedly silly sketch, but it also points to a very real concern for Superman’s existence in the DCEU. Man of Steel never really saw Superman try to hide behind his Clark Kent persona after the Kryptonian revealed himself to the world. Given the fact that this continuity of movies really tries to present these outlandish ideas in a grounded and realistic fashion, it makes us wonder whether or not the film will address Kal-El’s goofy method of disguising himself.


Perhaps it’s best not to overthink it. Overall it’s just a hilarious sketch and only adds to our mounting excitement for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. The film will blast into theaters later this month on March 25.
