The fallout from Deadpool‘s success has been quick and stupid. First came the rumors that Wolverine 3 will be R-rated and based on Old Man Logan (a story that pretty much requires access to MCU characters so I don’t even know how this’ll work) and now this – there will be an R-rated director’s cut of Batman v Superman – Dawn of Justice. Ugh.
The theatrical version will still be PG-13.
Twitter user @stitchkingdom (who largely deals in Disney news) came across this tidbit of info on the MPAA website.

An R-rated Batman/Superman movie is something literally no one needs and only the worst kind of fanboys want.
