With success of ‘Deadpool’ and the ‘R’ rated version of it, Batman and Superman want a piece of the action. This time its gong to be on blu-ray only but with an extended package as well. That’s cool. One in the theater for everyone and then a special dirtier version for home.
FilmRatings.com, the MPAA has officially had Zack Snyder‘s Batman v Superman rated R. There’s a bit of a catch there, however, as the film will be released in theaters with a PG-13 rating. The Batman v Superman rated R cut is being held for an upcoming Blu-ray edition titled the Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition. The R rating was given for the extended cut’s “sequences of violence”.
In the film, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante, fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, 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 and written by Chris Terrio from a screenplay by David S. Goyer, 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, joined by 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.
