Ezra Miller Explains Why Justice League Cut A Batman Joke

Justice League is finally in theaters everywhere, and fans and critic reactions are now pouring in with thoughts and opinions. While the overall response seems to be incredibly polarizing, one running theme across even the most negative of reviews is that the superhero ensemble is clearly the most lighthearted DCEU entry so far. Flash actor Ezra Miller has now revealed that the final product could have been even funnier, however, had one line of dialogue in particular made the cut.

“There’s a line that I miss from the film, that I wish was in there,” Miller shared in an interview with Gamespot. “[Aquaman] throws that thing against the wall in the Batcave, and [Batman’s] original line was–I think now he just says, ‘Hey. Don’t do that.’ But the original line was, ‘Hey. Don’t do that. A lot of my shit explodes.'”

The actor said that although the joke landed successfully on set — even cracking up Aquaman actor Jason Momoa and himself in the process — the expletive-fueled reply had to be cut in order to keep the film at its audience-friendly PG-13 rating. Miller continued, “[It was cut] because, I think, that we only got a certain number of curse words.”

The quip is just one of many notable bits from the film that seem to have been removed on the cutting room floor, which could very easily lead to Warner Bros. shipping out a deluxe version of Justice League when it hits store shelves and streaming services, similar to the studio’s home video release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
