Report: Warner Bros. is “100 percent” open to R-rated movies in the DC Films universe

With movies like Deadpool and Logan breaking R-rated movie box office records in the last year, the mature superhero movie is more popular than ever. So does Warner Bros. want to get in on the action with some of its characters in their new DC Films universe?

“One hundred percent yes. With the right character(s),” a Warner Bros. insider told The Wrap.

While it was PG-13 when it hit theaters, the 3 hour Ultimate Edition of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice received an R-rating from the MPAA for “sequences of violence”. It was nothing compared to Deadpool or Logan in terms of violence or mature content, though, as the movie was shot with a PG-13 rating in mind.

A Lobo script is in the works, and he’d definitely fit in an R-rated movie. Which other R-rated DC Comics movies would you like to see Warner Bros. make? Let me know in the comments below.
