The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) has put out a bulletin highlighting movies that they’ve recently rated, and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition” has been rated R for “sequences of violence.” The distributor is “Warner Home Entertainment”, so it sounds like we’re getting an extended director’s cut Blu-ray from Zack Snyder!
There’s even a note that reads “EDITED VERSION. CONTENT IS DIFFERENT FROM PG-13 VERSION, BULLETIN NO. 2393 (9/30/15).” Big thanks to @StitchKingdom for the heads up and spotting the news first.
Coincidentally, we just discussed the possibility of an R-rated Batman movie on the Batman News podcast. Never imagined it would happen! This is very surprising news. I guess Superman will bleed. A lot!
