ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Oscars special featured an interview with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star Ben Affleck who plays the Caped Crusader in the upcoming comic book-inspired film. Talk turned to scenes from the film and Affleck had to break the news that Kimmel’s character had been chopped out of the final cut for being too good compared to the rest of the cast. Fortunately, that “deleted scene” was available for Kimmel to show off to his viewers.
In addition to Affleck and Kimmel, the video includes Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Will Arnett as LEGO Batman, and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. Be sure to keep watching after Superman launches Kimmel into outer space for the surprise appearance of an Oscar nominated actor. The “deleted scene” begins at the three minute mark in the clip.
