It recently came out that the new Batman v. Superman movie would be rated PG-13 and some people are getting all up in arms about it. I don’t know what Batman or Superman movies they have been watching, but since the 1989 Batman movie they have all been rated PG-13. As far as Superman goes, only the latest few movies have been rated PG-13 because in the beginning they were too scared to make anything really violent.
Batman v. Superman has to be rated PG-13, because a PG movie featuring pillow and tickle fights just wouldn’t be that amusing. Batman on his own walking around Gotham city deserves a PG-13, because more often than not he’s having an inner monologue about being the goddamn Batman. Superman is goody goody, but with an army of armed followers in the new movie you have to expect some violence. Are we also not remembering that Wonder Man is fighting something that has blown up a good majority of land? That wasn’t a bonfire gone bad, that was something seriously making a mess causing our heroes to ban together to defeat it. Making this movie anything other than PG-13 would really show that there are other hands involved that we want no part of.
