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 Schiff. Man of Steel opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on June 13th.
