We’re still about a month away from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice being released, but we already have some exciting news about its Blu-Ray release.
While the superhero flick’s theatrical release got a PG-13 rating, it was just announced by the MPAA that the home entertainment version of BvS has received an R rating!
No, the reason isn’t because of gratuitous Super-sex or Bat-language, but rather due to “sequences of violence”.
Obviously Deadpool has proven to be one of the most successful comic book movies ever even with an R rating, and could very well be the reason BvS is getting its more mature “Ultimate Edition”.
If you’re a fan of the comics, this may make some sense as director Zack Snyder has talked about taking inspiration from Frank Miller‘s very gritty The Dark Knight Returns story.
Vote and let us know if you’d be interested in checking out the R-rated version of the superhero epic (below)!
