Report: Justice League Blu-ray will feature previously unreleased bonus scene

When Warner Bros.' Justice League arrives on Blu-ray you'll be able to see a version of the film not seen in theaters ... sort of. Based on the first images of the film's home video packaging from Walmart, the Blu-ray/DVD/Digital combo pack will feature a previously unreleased bonus scene never before viewed in theaters (check out the red sticker on the left box below).

What this sequence could be is anyone's guess and could range from content we saw in trailers that didn't make the final cut to something else altogether. Many changes were made when Avengers director Joss Whedon (also spearheading a Batgirl film for the DCEU) was brought on for reshoots last winter. 

If you were hoping for a Zack Snyder director's cut, you'll likely be disappointed — at least for the time being. The movie's poor reception and box-office failure (with the worst opening of any DCEU film) could keep it from getting any further "cuts" released on home video beyond the theatrical one with a bonus scene. However, Snyder's theatrical version of Watchmen got released on Blu-ray and DVD in July of 2009, and four months later the Director's Cut and Ultimate Cut (the Director's Cut that includes Tales of the Black Freighter edited into the narrative) were released in November. There's always a chance Warner Home Video could be poised to make a similar move with Justice League.

Some reports say that Warner Brothers is set to announce the release date for the Justice League Blu-ray over the next two weeks. They also peg the digital release on Amazon and iTunes at February 13, but so far SYFY WIRE has been unable to confirm either claim.
