Why is Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice rated PG-13? Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for intense sequences of violence and action throughout, and some sensuality.

Violence: Many scenes depict confrontations between characters using superhuman strength and technological advantages that cause injury, death and destruction. Some blood effects are included. Stabbings or impalings are portrayed. Many characters are gunned down; a few are shot at close range, although the bullet impact is not seen. Buildings are demolished by alien beings and we see people being crushed and injured. Some characters have a brand burned onto them and at one point we see a character about to brand another. Women are held captive and threatened by men. Blood drips from a self inflicted cut on a character’s hand.

Sexual Content: A completely dressed man joins a woman in a bathtub and they begin kissing and embracing: the woman is obviously naked but we don’t see explicit nudity.

Language: A single scatological curse is heard along with five religious terms (two are names of Christian deity used as expletives).

Alcohol / Drug Use: Characters are seen drinking in social situations.
