It’s official: Warner Bros.’ “Wonder Woman” is rated PG-13. The Motion Picture Association of America’s Classification and Rating Administration awarded the rating “for sequences of violence and action, and some suggestive content.”
According to an earlier report, WB is interested in making R-rated films, especially considering the success of both “Deadpool” and “Logan.” However, it looks like “Wonder Woman” didn’t quite make the cut. This may be due to the fact that “Wonder Woman” is expected to have a lighter tone; per director Patty Jenkins, this film’s version of the character will be a “hopeful, optimistic leader, and the tone of this film represents that.”
“Wonder Woman” will join DC Extended Universe compatriots “Man of Steel” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” both of which also had PG-13 ratings. However, “Batman v Superman” received an R-rated “Ultimate Cut” when released on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD.
Based on a screenplay by Allan Heinberg and Geoff Johns from a story by Heinberg and Zack Snyder, “Wonder Woman” follows the Amazon princess who, after discovering the body of American fighter pilot Steve Trevor washed ashore washed ashore on Themyscira, sets out to bring an early end to World War I.
Opening June 2, “Wonder Woman” stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Lucy Davis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Saïd Taghmaoui, Ewen Bremner, Lisa Loven Kongsli and David Thewlis.
