Unite the League. Zack Snyder’s Justice League officially gets its R-rating for violence and some language
Holy R-Rating, Batman. Justice League gets its MPAA rating.
Recently, in response to a question from an eager fan, writer and director Zack Snyder was asked what rating he expected his upcoming version of ‘Justice League‘ to receive. To the surprise of many, Snyder answered it would almost certainly gain an R rating from the M.P.A.A. instead of the usual PG-13 that Warner Bros, DC Universe content receives.
He wasn’t lying. It has been confirmed that the film, a four-hour version, and Snyder’s vision of how he wanted the film to be, has gained an R rating. The news was confirmed on the Film Ratings.Com website where it proudly displays the film is:
‘Rated R for violence and some language’
The rating means it will slot in alongside ‘Joker‘, and ‘Birds Of Prey: And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn‘ as being a more violent, adult-oriented film. Instead of the family-friendly fare that is the normal route DC takes with their content.
The movie will attempt to brush away the version released by Joss Whedon in 2017. His version has now been cruelly dubbed ‘Josstice League‘ by many DC fans who feel the director’s version is a complete mess. Even suggesting it has undone much of Snyder’s build-up work from ‘Man Of Steel‘ and ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice‘.
Snyder’s vision hits HBO MAX on March 18th. The rest of the world is still awaiting news on when and how they will get to see the film. The movie once again stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, and Ray Fisher. Alongside DC’s big guns are Connie Nielson, Diane Lane, Amy Adams, and Amber Heard amongst others.
