Washington D .C . [USA], Nov 19 (ANI): 'Justice League' is hands down one of DC Films' funniest films, and it turns out, there was plenty of footage that ended up on the cutting room floor .

Hilarious banter is littered throughout the movie, and while Flash actor Ezra Miller doesn't feel the film lacked anything, there is one sequence he was sad to see go - a joke uttered by Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) .

The 25-year-old actor, who plays Flash in the flick, said in a recent interview with GameSpot, "There's a line that I miss from the film, that I wish was in there, [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 s**t explodes ."

The actor said that although the joke landed successfully on set, 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 ."

In theaters now, 'Justice League' also stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Ciaran Hinds as Steppenwolf, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and J .K . Simmons as Commissioner Gordon . (ANI)
