DC Films’ The Batman is coming out this March (hopefully) and we finally have confirmation that the movie is going to be rated PG-13 in the United States.
This news was revealed by a new listing from the MPA’s Classification and Ratings Administration.
They claimed that the movie has been rated PG-13 for “strong violent and disturbing content, drug content, strong language, and some suggestive material.”
The movie is going to star Robert Pattinson as Batman and this casting was rather controversial for some reason.
When I heard that Pattinson had been cast as the Dark Knight I couldn’t help but think that it was an incredible bit of casting.
That said, there are many people that still just know Robert Pattinson as the guy from the Twilight movies.
The thing is, since those movies were released, Pattinson has been starring in some really interesting independent movies.
He’s been delivering incredible performance after incredible performance.

One of his very best was in The Rover, and he was also brilliant in movies such as Good Time, Cosmopolis, Maps To The Stars and Lost City Of Z.
It’ll be interesting to see his take on Batman and on Bruce Wayne.
I feel like he’s the perfect actor to play the role for the world we are currently living in.
The Batman is also going to star Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, Andy Serkis, and Colin Farrell.
That’s one of the best casts ever assembled for a Batman movie!
