The Batman: Matt Reeves Addresses Why the Movie Doesn’t A Rating R

by Stewart Cole

Batman introduces a new, tougher conception of the Dark Knight, one who certainly does not mind hitting criminals hard. In the trailers that have been released so far, we have seen Robert Pattinson handing out all sorts of savage punishments, from turning a gang leader’s face into porridge until he receives an electric shock and knocks them out with his own weapons. One can not say how far he will go to render his justice.

As we learned from Pattinson himself in ours Batman cover for his new issue Den of Geek magazine, this version of the character certainly sounds a little clearer than before, someone who loves to vent his revenge on the bad guys chasing the darkest corners of Gotham City. Indeed, the film seems so violent that some fans were really surprised when they found out Batman had indeed been rated PG-13. In the end, it seemed that Warner Bros. was finally going to present the legendary R-rated Batman movie that some fans have been asking for for a long time.

But according to director Matt Reeves, the truth is that PG-13 has always been the blueprint for his vision for Batman legends.

“In my mind, the movie would always be a tough, nervous, noir, thrilling spectacle that was PG-13,” Reeves told Den of Geek. “It always was what it was, but I always knew we would go beyond what it could be, so we didn’t really have to cut anything. “The commercials you see fully reflect the tone of the film.”
