DC are open to the idea of an ‘R-rated’ movie within its movie universe.
In an interview with The Wrap, a source from within DC Entertainment was asked if the studio were willing to branch out if an idea became viable. “One hundred percent yes. With the right character(s),” the source said.
The call for such a movie follows hot on the heels of the success of both Deadpool and Logan at the worldwide box office.
And last week, the site Fandango conducted a poll asking fans if they wanted more R-rated superhero films. More than 70% of respondents said they wanted such blockbusters, and nearly 90% said they were seeing Logan because of its more violent tone.
So, who knows? Maybe DC’s planned Nightwing (above) solo film will get that sort of gritty rating.
