Suicide Squad Will be Rated PG-13
On August 5th, 2016, another comic adaptation from DC Comics will enter US cinemas: Suicide Squad. It stars Jared Leto, Margot Robbie and Will Smith, among others. The film provokes discussions especially regarding Leto's role as The Joker. A lot of speculation also surrounded hopes for an "R" rating and considering the dark nature of the original material and the recent example of Marvel's Deadpool that wasn't all too unthinkable.
However, producer Charles Roven talked to Collider and ended all speculation and said that they aim at the PG-13 rating.
Not that much of a surprise, unfortunately, and a PG-13 allows at least for some sort of dark interpretation of the material. But will it give the fans what they truly want? We'll see once the film is released and reactions can be observed. Right now, hardcore fans say that the studio opted for the creative suicide instead of a financial one.
