Five Scenes We Are Glad Were Cut from Classic MoviesThe best movies are made in the editing room. Of the reels and reels of film shot for any movie, a large part is cut to bring the story down to two hours or so. What's not used can be released later as a bonus on home video media, or as a viral boost when viewership starts to flag. But sometimes a scene, a character, or a whole subplot is cut because it was just a bad idea all around. Some of the best movies have such scenes, and it is only a long time later that we learn about them. But when we do, we understand why. Some of them will make you say, "What were they thinking?" Imagine nudity in The Breakfast Club. Imagine an on-screen murder in Back to the Future III. A sex scene with a ghost in Ghostbusters. Yes, it was a good idea that those were rethought and cut from the movies. How about a sex doll in The Thing? Or cute little Elliot getting a lecture on drunkenness in E.T.: The Extraterrestrial? Those are things that might have been, and would have hurt the movies overall. Read about those scenes, with video evidence for some at Cracked.#deletedscene #filmmaking 
A Deleted Scene from The Batman Reveals The JokerYeah, The Joker was supposed to be in the new film The Batman, but his contribution was cut out of the final edit. We still get to see him, thanks to Warner Bros. posting this deleted scene. It features Batman (Robert Pattinson) visiting Arkham Asylum to consult with The Joker on the enigmatic Riddler, in a scene that will remind you of Hannibal Lecter. Barry Keoghan plays The Joker. He first appears blurry and hard to hear, but becomes clearer and more terrifying as the scene goes on. Be warned that this Joker is heavily scarred and damaged. Keoghan's portrayal of The Joker isn't meant to set him up as a character in a future story, at least according to director Matt Reeves. But he'd be good in the role. -via Geeks Are Sexy #Batman #Joker #deletedscene #TheBatman
