If there is something that many fans have criticized in superhero cinema, it is the fact that certain films did not have an R rating, that is, that they are adult films that have the doses of violence according to the comics on which they are based. , something that many fans miss in DC movies as the comics are generally more focused on an adult audience.
It seems that that will change with the arrival of The Suicide Squad, the new film of the DC Extended Universe directed by James Gunn before continuing with the MCU’s Guardians of the Galaxy film saga. In this sort of sequel/reboot of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, he will recover Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller.
Although actor Joel Kinnaman assumed that Suicide Squad will have an R rating, it has finally been the director himself responding to a fan through Twitter who has confirmed that the movie The Suicide Squad will have an R rating.
Yes it’s rated R.
