Wondering what happened to Lex Luthor in the middle of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice? A newly released deleted scene from the movie will only add to the questions, even as it hints at further connections with other upcoming DC Extended Universe movies. Spoilers ahead.
The scene, released by Warner Bros., is titled “Communion,” which gives as good a hint to what is actually happening as anything in the (silent) scene itself.
It shows soldiers enter the Kryptonian ship which Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) gains access to, and discover Luthor standing before… someone, who has three floating boxes in front of him. Upon being discovered, the mysterious figure and boxes seem to evaporate into individual atoms, which fly away, and Luthor appears to awaken from a trance-like state, confused.
