6 R-Rated Comic Book Movies Audiences Deserve

Previous1 of 7

Comic Book Characters Green Arrow Black Widow Batman R-RatedLogan and Deadpool have shown studios that R-Rated superhero movies can succeed. Sure, Watchmen and 300 kind of proved that same point in 2009, but now both Marvel and DC have said R-Rated movies are a possibility. Audiences are tired of so many comic book movies featuring similar plots, so opening more projects to the potential of being R-Rated makes it possible that different, mature stories can be told.

Some characters, like Superman and Spider-Man, should never receive the R-Rated treatment. If a character is defined by a sense of hope or optimism instead of a dark, gritty core that grounds all their actions, then a R-Rated movie likely won’t work.

    Audiences deserve squat. The public has shown a consistent disregard to context. They deserve being taken for a ride, that’s for sure.

    I don’t think audiences deserve anything dark. People are complaining about Stephen Amell’s Green Arrow that it’s too dark and are enjoying movie like Thor: Ragnarok because they’re full of jokes. Just like Jinza says, audiences deserve squat.

      Star Wars sure took them for a ride. Crapped in everyone’s cereal and ran off with all the money bags in the world.
