Well its official, the Snyder Cut will return the DCEU to its dark and broody roots with an R rating for Justice League. Now before you get all uppity about this news, just realize that the “Ultimate Edition” of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was also given an R Rating when it dropped for home release. That version of BVS just contained a Bat-Butt scene, more blood, and maybe a singular F-word. Hardly a Quentin Tarantino kind of R Rating.
The original cut of Justice League was rated PG-13 for sequences of sci-fi violence and action, suggesting the Snyder Cut will tread some more adult waters.
There’s plenty of opportunities for Snyder to inject more violence and language, considering the Snyder Cut includes 150 minutes of previously unseen footage.
Much like BVS, expect most of the violence and foul language to take place during the apocalyptic Knightmare Future where Darkseid had conquered Earth and killed most of the Justice League.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League, often referred to as the “Snyder Cut“, is an upcoming director’s cut of the 2017 American superhero film Justice League. It presents Justice League—the fifth film of the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) and based on the DC Comics superhero team of the same name—as director Zack Snyder had intended it before he left the film’s production. Like the theatrical release, Zack Snyder’s Justice League features an ensemble cast that includes Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa and Ray Fisher. The film follows the Justice League—Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg—as they attempt to save the world from the catastrophic threat of Steppenwolf, Darkseid, and an army of demonic Parademons.
