Batman officially gets a PG-13 rating from the MPAA

Anyone hoping for an R-rated Batman movie, it’s time to give up that dream. We are a few months ahead of the long awaited premiere and now the official MPAA rating for Batman has been revealed!

According to, Batman has obtained a PG-13 rating for “highly violent and disturbing content, substance content, strong language and some suggestive material.” Warner Bros. wanted the $ 100 million film to be seen by as large an audience as possible, so an R rating was ruled out. There was some early speculation about a possible R-rating given the success of Joker, who was R-rated and still committed a homicide at the box office. Joker is certainly the exception and not the rule, and though Batman can push the limits of its PG-13 rating, I could not imagine the studio trying it yet with the Caped Crusader.

According to the film’s official synopsis, “It’s not just a call … It’s a warning. From Warner Bros. Pictures comes Matt Reeves’”Batman, ”Starring Robert Pattinson in the dual role of Gotham City’s vigilant detective and his alter ego, the retired billionaire Bruce Wayne. Two years of persecution in the streets as Batman (Robert Pattinson), who struck fear into the hearts of criminals, has led Bruce Wayne deep into the shadows of Gotham City. With only a few trusted allies – Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis), Lieutenant James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) – among the city’s corrupt network of officials and high-profile figures, the lone vigilante has established himself as the only embodiment of revenge among his fellow citizens. When a killer attacks Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic insinuations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the world’s greatest detective on an investigation into the underworld, where he meets characters such as Selina Kyle / aka Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot / aka the penguin (Colin Farrell ), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro) and Edward Nashton / alias the Riddler (Paul Dano). “As the evidence begins to move closer to home and the extent of the perpetrator’s plans becomes clear, Batman must create new relationships, expose the culprit and bring justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham City.”
