Warner Bros. has officially given Justice League a rating on its website, and it is rated PG-13 for “sequences of sci-fi violence and action.”
While a PG-13 rating isn’t surprising, seeing as almost every superhero film gets that rating, it is worth noting. Last year’s Deadpool and this year’s Logan were both major hits with an R-Rating, and DC Films took a dabble in the Rated-R game with the extended edition of Batman v Superman. The first trailer for Suicide Squad made it seem like it could’ve earned an R-Rating as well, but after the negative backlash for BvS, the film was considerably lightened up.
Another interesting note, is that Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas are still involved as Executive Producers on the film. While Nolan did help with the story of Man of Steel, he’s taken a considerable back seat in DC Films since The Dark Knight Rises, so it’s unclear how involved he was with Justice League. But, it never hurts to have someone as established as Nolan as an EP for your film.
Also, Martin Walsh, the editor of Wonder Woman, is given an editing credit here, along with Zack Snyder’s longtime editor David Brenner. It’s becoming more and more evident that WB is slowly pushing Snyder and company out and trying to stick with what’s been successful for DC Films.
Justice League is in theaters November 17th.
