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.

    Significantly darker if you compare with Donner’s movies, right? Because I just can’t see where is darkness in those trailers at all. Come on, “You will give people an ideal to strive towards. They will race behind you. They will stumble, they will fall. But in time, they will join you in the sun. In time, you will help them to accomplish wonders.” How can it be dark?! That’s just so Superman-ish, pure inspirational speech.

    Studios still don’t get Superman isn’t a “dark” character?

    Supes doesn’t work well when he’s dark and edgy, he’s the optimistic blue boy scout, that’s the point of his character.

      Because Superman Returns’ lighthearted take worked so well. Obviously they just need to repeat that formula.

      • Mike

        The main problems with Superman Returns is the look of the film, (too many shadows) and that it was boring and pretentious as hell. A Supes film should feature adventure and heroic feats, not Superman progressively lifting heavier stuff in the crucified position.
