DC Films Would ‘100%’ Make R-Rated Superhero Movie

With the recent successes of Marvel’s Deadpool and Logan, fans and many others question if DC will finally make an R-rated film. The DCEU Animated-verse has also seen recent R-rated success with the likes of The Killing Joke and Justice League Dark. As fans, we totally want some R-Rated live action flicks!

An insider at WB DC Films recently was quoted as thus:

“One hundred percent yes. With the right character(s),”

Last week, movie ticket franchise Fandango conducted a survey asking moviegoers if they like superhero films to be “Deadpool-style” which is gross, sexy, violent, and full of cursing. 71% said they want more superhero R-rated flicks and 86% said they want to check out Logan because it offers just those nasty things us adults want. They survey was done by asking 1,000 Logan ticket holders. The closest thing we get to our own R-rated film is the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition that many fans find much more superior to the theatrical release.

But the consensus comes down to the DC fans. Would you like to see DC attempt some R-rated films? And which ones would you like to see? Tell us in the comments!

My forte is being up on absolutely everything there is to know about the Caped Crusader, and both the Clown Prince and Princess of Crime. I recently graduated from Southern New Hampshire University with an MA in English and Creative Writing. Currently I am earning my MFA at National University. I have 5 cats and 2 dogs, and spend what free time I have doing whatever (mostly Pokémon GO). Have a happy!
