Apparently, the knock down, drag out, fist to cuffs new film, The Batman, pulls just enough punches to land short of an R rating.
According to Filmratings.com, The Batman has received a PG-13 rating due to “strong violent and disturbing content, drug content, strong language, and some suggestive material.”
The PG-13 rating should come as no surprise as it's hard to think that Warner Bros. would limit the audience to one of its most popular IP's to just the 17+ crowd, but it does raise the question, where is the line between acceptable PG-13 violence and R rated content, and how closely will the new Matt Reeves film come to crossing that line?
The film surrounds Bruce Wayne in his "second year of crime fighting. As Batman, Wayne uncovers corruption in Gotham City that connects to his own family, while also facing a serial killer known as the Riddler".
The Warner Bros. film staring Robert Pattinson, Collin Ferrell, Paul Dano, Zoe Kravitz and Any Serkis, hits theaters March 4th and streams on HBO Max on April 19.
