To the shock of absolutely no one, the MPAA has given director Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman reboot Man of Steel a PG-13 rating.  Though the tone of the film looks to be significantly darker based on the two trailers we’ve seen thus far, I don’t think anyone seriously thought this giant tentpole of a movie would veer into R territory.  That being said, the rating description does give us a tiny bit of insight (kind of?) into the sense of scope Snyder is going for, as Ropes of Silicon reports that the film is rated PG-13 for “intense sequences of sci-fi violence, action and destruction, and for some language.”  Fingers crossed for a curse-filled outburst from Lois Lane.

Henry Cavill stars as the titular superhero, with Michael Shannon as villain General Zod, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, and a talented supporting cast that includes Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Russell Crowe, Laurence Fishbourne, Christopher Meloni, and Richard SchiffMan of Steel opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on June 13th.
