‘Coming Soon: WB’s Robert Pattinson-Led The Batman Receives PG-13 Rating’

According to Film Ratings, Warner Bros. Pictures’ highly-anticipated standalone DC film The Batman has officially been given a PG-13 rating from the MPAA for “strong violent and disturbing content, drug content, strong language, and some suggestive material.” The film’s rating only continues to hype up the Robert Pattinson-led film’s dark tone and violent action sequences, which were first teased in previous trailers.

The film is slated to premiere on March 4, 2022. Its current theatrical release will pit the superhero film against no direct competition, but it will still debut in the same month as STXfilms’ spy thriller Operation Fortune: Ruse de guerre, and Paramount Pictures’ romantic-comedy adventure The Lost City.

The Batman is directed by Matt Reeves from a screenplay he co-wrote with Peter Craig. The superhero film will see Robert Pattinson taking on the mantle of the Dark Knight.

“Two years of stalking the streets as the Batman, striking fear into the hearts of criminals, has led Bruce Wayne deep into the shadows of Gotham City. With only a few trusted allies — Alfred Pennyworth, Lt. James Gordon — amongst the city’s corrupt network of officials and high-profile figures, the lone vigilante has established himself as the sole embodiment of vengeance amongst his fellow citizens,” reads the synopsis.

“When a killer targets Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the World’s Greatest Detective on an investigation into the underworld, where he encounters such characters as Selina Kyle/aka Catwoman, Oswald Cobblepot/aka the Penguin, Carmine Falcone, and Edward Nashton/aka the Riddler. As the evidence begins to lead closer to home and the scale of the perpetrator’s plans becomes clear, Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and bring justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham City.”

Joining Pattinson are Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Paul Dano as Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as GCPD’s James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gotham D.A. Gil Colson, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Ferrell as Oswald Cobblepot/ Penguin. It will also feature Barry Keoghan, Jayme Lawson, Alex Ferns, and twins Max and Charlie Carver.
