Man of Steel Lands a PG-13 Rating
Aside from the pressure of creating a Superman film that fans will enjoy, Zack Snyder and company must make Man of Steel a success because the future of the DC film-verse is riding on it being a success. Should this film fail, the chances of a Justice League movie happening are slim to none. No pressure, Warner Brothers, none at all.
In the meantime, it was announced today that Man of Steel has been given a PG-13 rating ”for intense sequences of sci-fi violence, action and destruction, and for some language.” This really isn’t that surprising as most comic book films fall in this category. Not to mention an R-Rated Superman film would eliminate a majority of the audience that WB is trying to target.
Man of Steel flies into theaters in 3D, 2D and IMAX formats on June 14th. Henry Cavill will be filling the role of Clark Kent and Superman, with Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White and Michael Shannon as Zod. Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni and Russell Crowe also star.
