DC fans are saying that their movies are “too dark” for critics to understand, but really how “dark” can you get in a PG-13 movie about grown men in capes? That’s why everybody generally likes Marvel shit, because if you watching grown men in capes you might as well laugh at jokes and witty banter instead of them. I mean, if you’re gonna be “dark” then go dark. Stop whining. That being said, Suicide Squad director David Ayer talked to MTV News and said the sequel will be rated-R if he had his way.
“For an R movie, you have to decide to do it right out the gate, and that was never the case here,” Ayer told MTV News at CinemaCon’s Warner Bros’ presentation on April 13. “We were always going to hit the PG-13 rating. But the film is meant to be that. It’s got edge, and it’s got attitude. And it’s got its own voice… There’s a lot in the film that’s going to surprise people.” Though Suicide Squad undoubtedly skirts the edge off its PG-13 rating, that won’t stop Ayer from fighting for a much naughtier sequel. When asked if he would consider an R-rated follow-up, the director said, “It would be worth lobbying for.”
That’s cool, I guess. Maybe they’ll kill Zack Snyder in it.
