One of next year’s most anticipated gets a PG-13 as the MPAA officially turns in the Batman v Superman rating
Zack Snyder’s upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has today received its official MPAA rating. According to the association, the Batman v Superman rating will be a PG-13 for “intense sequences of violence and action throughout, and some sensuality.”
A PG-13 Batman v Superman rating is not necessarily a surprising answer. Every Batman film since Tim Burton’s 1989 version has been given a PG-13, as have both Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns and Snyder’s own Man of Steel.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Superman, and Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. The film also stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning from Man of Steel, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and Holly Hunter in a role newly created for the film. Jason Momoa will also be making an appearance as Aquaman.
Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
Directed by Zack Snyder, written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is produced by Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Wesley Coller, David S. Goyer and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to open worldwide on March 25, 2016.
