A few weeks ago, the trailer for the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice home edition came out, and it showed some awesome new footage that pleased a lot of critics. Many have doubted the film and didn't think it lived up to expectations, but there is new hope with the additional clips and special features. Well, now there is even more as Warner Bros. truly attempts to get fans excited with some incredible behind-the-scenes shots to tease them for the release.
When the trailer was released for the Ultimate Edition, it showed not only some extra footage but also new characters that were cut from the final cut. It's going to bring about an R-rated version of the film that fans may have truly wanted in theaters, but making it any longer in duration wouldn't have been feasible.
Now, that version of Batman V Superman can be enjoyed at home, and the excitement is building as the June 28 release date on Digital and July 19 release on Blu-ray and DVD start to get closer. Collider has pointed out that official set photographer Clay Enos has started sharing a bunch of behind-the-scenes photos on social media, and they are pretty awesome.
Jesse and Henry square off as Zack frames up. #BatmanvSuperman #UltimateEdition @BatmanvSuperman pic.twitter.com/rlT4fRPCb4Everyone knew that Superman (Henry Cavill) and Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) weren't standing on a very high rooftop for that face-off, but it's still fun to imagine. It's even cooler to see how it was filmed in reality which shows how much work was done to bring it to life.

There are other behind-the-scenes shots from Enos that are even more impressive and sort of signify what the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) is all about. One is a great shot of Batman staring at a huge explosion in the distance as the rain pours down on him, and it gives a true image of "The Dark Knight."
Big movies call for big, real effects. All night long! #BatmanvSuperman #UltimateEdition @BatmanvSuperman pic.twitter.com/3U2ZlGB2nzMeanwhile, one very observant fan noticed that this particular shot of Batman was used for a lot of the film's promotional material. Not only was it seen on posters and promo cards, but even on some popcorn buckets sold at theaters showing Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Speaking of explosions, there was another cool shot from Enos which involved Batman, but it had the Batmobile emerging from the flames.
Everything about the #BatmanvSuperman #Batmobile impressed me. #WBHomeEnt #BvSUltimateEdition pic.twitter.com/3sxdNTAILdKeeping with the Batman theme, fans may remember this scene from the film as Bruce Wayne was dealing with his "Knightmares." This one is overly interesting as it shows how they set up for the shot where Wayne (Ben Affleck) is attacked by a human formed bat...or Man-Bat if you will.

Zack & Ben face off w/ Rich Cetrone covered head to toe in makeup @BatmanvSuperman #BatmanvSuperman #UltimateEdition pic.twitter.com/9Dk73WEGeWPerhaps one of the best shots that Enos has revealed on Twitter so far is one of director Zack Snyder and perhaps who many feel is the film's saving grace in Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot). Snyder frames the shot just as he wants it and makes sure that Gadot gets the iconic pose perfect.

This has to be one of my favorite memories from #BatmanvSuperman #UltimateEdition @BatmanvSuperman pic.twitter.com/DjbNbCzEoZThere is still time left until the Ultimate Edition is released and hopefully that means some more incredible shots from Clay Enos in the next week or two.

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was expected to cross the worldwide billion-dollar mark at the worldwide box office, but it ended up falling short. Even with that being seen as a "failure," many still have hope for the DC Extended Universe with Wonder Woman, Justice League, and others. The behind-the-scenes pics and extended footage for the Ultimate Edition Blu-ray will work to Zack Snyder's advantage as it will show he had the right ideas in mind.
