We were all pretty confused when it was revealed that the home version of Batman v. Superman would have a cut that would be getting an R rating in an ultimate edition. No one really knew what could be so bad that it could change a PG-13 to an R, besides violence. In my opinion violence making a movie get an R means there are some pretty gruesome scenes, much like in The Raid. Superman can’t have any bones broken and no one wants to see Batman with a bone popping out of his body so what could be so bad? Ben Affleck recently gave an interview to EW and shined a little light on the subject of the movie getting an R rating.

I’m a parent of young kids, and I feel like I wouldn’t want to have a Batman v Superman that I couldn’t show to my younger kids,” the actor says. “But on the same token, as an adult, I like to see movies that are R-rated. I think nowadays because we have so many means of distribution and ways that we can do different things, it’s the creative solution to a creative challeng…You can have multiple versions and I can show my son and my daughters this movie and feel confident that the stuff isn’t too crazy, and then grownups can see larger version, [which is like] the red-band trailer. They can see the more adult version of that movie.

EW also broke how we would be seeing The Flash in the Batman v Superman movie. Apparently The Flash will be appearing to Bruce Wayne in a nightmare and giving him a cryptic message, which reminds me of the end of Justice League: Flashpoint. Does Batman already know The Flash or has the speed force given The Flash powers to invade dreams and become a creepy messenger? There are theories that this may be another tidbit to throw us all off and The Flash may give Batman a message but not in a dream.
