An R-Rated Version Of BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE Is On The Way

A live-action R-Rated Batman movie is something fans have been hoping to see for some time, and it turns out one is on the way! Hit the jump for details on this alternate version of Batman v Superman.

The Director's Cut for Watchmen was incredible, and while we never got an extended version of Man of Steel, it turns out that Zack Snyder has big plans for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The always reliable Stitch Kingdom has revealed this evening that an "Ultimate Edition" Blu-ray has been Rated-R for the reasons you can see in the Tweet below. 

More violence is no bad thing, and I wouldn't mind betting that this version of the movie will be packed full of extra scenes featuring the Dark Knight brutally doling out justice to Gotham City's criminals! Of course, there's also every chance that the battle between the titular heroes will get even more vicious than the version we'll see in the upcoming theatrical release. 

While you may think it's odd for a PG-13 summer blockbuster to get an R-Rated home video release, the same thing happened with the extended versions of The Hobbit movies, so this isn't exactly unheard of. It's pretty incredible news regardless, so stay tuned for more details as we have them. For now, let us know your thoughts in the usual place.
