Suicide Squad director David Ayer in an interview with MTV at the CinemaCon on April 13th, spoke on the film’s PG-13 rating, confirming the film was always meant to be rated PG-13 from the beginning.
“For an R movie, you have to decide to do it right out the gate, and that was never the case here,” Ayer told MTV News at CinemaCon’s Warner Bros’ presentation on April 13. “We were always going to hit the PG-13 rating. But the film is meant to be that. It’s got edge, and it’s got attitude. And it’s got its own voice… There’s a lot in the film that’s going to surprise people.”
When asked on the idea of the film’s sequel which is said to be already in development by Warner Bros., Ayer had this to say:
“It would be worth lobbying for.”
