Birds Of Prey has been rated R as the film will be having strong language and gore. The Margot Robbie starrer will be the second R rated film in the DCEU after Joker.
Margot Robbie has opened up about the R rating and during a recent interview the actress stated “I did feel like I had to censor myself a lot, obviously to suit a PG rating, and a lot of the characters that exist in the DC world, to be honest, are quite dark. And a lot of them, Huntress for example, have serious childhood trauma, have serious mental illnesses like Harley.”
She further added on “But I felt like sometimes you can’t really go as deep with those things if you have to censor yourself. And I thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be liberating if we didn’t have to worry about that?’ and really go for it, and then later in the edit kind of find where the tone of movie lies.”
