Batman v Superman's R-rated trailer has more action and more Jena Malone

We've known for a while that an R-rated, 181 minute version of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was on the way, and thanks to a new trailer for the Blu-Ray release of the film we now have a small idea of what we're in for. The promo features plenty of new footage - including a first look at Jena Malone's mysterious character - and you can check it out below...

Aside from footage of Malone, the trailer also contains some hitherto unseen snippets of action - including what looks to be a scene of Batman getting the kryptonite from Luthor's building, something we only saw the aftermath of in the original cut of the movie - some more dialogue from Alfred, and what looks to be Clark Kent talking to a Gotham citizen about Batman. 

I really wasn't a fan of Batman v Superman when it was released, but against all odds this trailer made me curious to check out the R-rated version. One of, if not THE biggest problem with the theatrical cut of the movie was its editing, so it will be interesting to see how different my reaction to Snyder's original three hour vision is to the way I felt about the film back when I first saw it in March.

Warner Bros have also unveiled the hefty amount of special features that will come with the Blu-Ray release (via Collider). Check it out below...
