Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is going all out for the Ultimate Edition Blu-ray with an R rating, according to the Classifications and Ratings Administration.
This expanded cut of the film will likely be in a similar vein to Snyder’s Ultimate Cut of Watchmen, and is reportedly rated R for “scenes of violence” meaning the success of the recent R-rated comic book film, Deadpool, most likely had no bearing on this new cut.
No other details about this Ultimate Edition have been revealed as of yet.
Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016.
