It wasn’t at all surprising when Zack Snyder’s Justice League was rated R for violence and profanity as he is a director known to have a harder edge especially when it comes to his DC Comics films. He had earlier promised a few reasons that would get his movie this rating and it all seems to have come together.
It is due to Steppenwolf cutting through his enemies like most of us would do with butter and Ben Affleck’s Batman dropping an F-bomb. The big R has been already branded on the film and the film ratings have reported it as official. It’s all going to be an exciting four-hour movie experience delivered to HBO Max.
