Zack Snyder teased a couple of months ago that the Snyder Cut would have an R rating, especially with the potential of an F-bomb or two from Ben Affleck’s Batman. This comes on top of reports that the movie would up the violence to new levels of brutality, including a Steppenwolf that would rip people in half.
In an official release from Film Ratings, via Will Mavity of Next Best Picture, the Snyder Cut of Justice League has officially received an R rating from the MPAA for its HBO Max release. This includes a description that reads “Rated R for Violence and Some Language.”
Now that Snyder has the freedom to make the Justice League movie he wants to make, he seems to be holding nothing back this time around. The real question that remains now is how hard of an R rating this movie will use. It has the opportunity to go as dark and violent as Snyder sees fit, so we can only imagine that will mean some dark, bloody fun.
