In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Snyder revealed that the R-rated version will be longer (duh). "We were just like, 'Okay, look. We're not making a three-hour movie. I mean, even I didn't want to make a three-hour movie. I drove the cuts probably harder than anyone."
Adding back in scenes, or lengthening existing ones, means the inclusion of characters who ended up on the cutting room floor. One of those is a character played by Jena Malone, who was cut from the theatrical version. Fans had been speculating that Malone might play Batgirl, or even Robin, but Snyder cleared that up.
"She's definitely not Robin or Batgirl. I'm happy to say that," he said.
Malone isn't the only cameo that will get revived. "There's a couple, like, Ahman Green, the running back from the Green Bay Packers, he's in it. And C.T. Fletcher is like this bodybuilder muscle-guru from Compton, this awesome guy. He's amazing, and he's in it," Snyder noted.
"And then there's just a lot of these Easter Eggs in the Director's Cut that I think are gonna be fun for everyone."
