Sex & Nudity

  • Clark walks in on Lois completely nude in a bath. Her breasts are obscured by the water and her bare shoulders and back are primarily shown. When she moves to talk to him, her nipple briefly comes into view, but she positions herself so the viewer can't see her breasts properly. Clark enters the bath and sex is implied.
  • Men appear shirtless throughout the film, primarily the titular characters.
  • Wonder Woman's costume has a short skirt and does not cover up any of her leg.
  • EXTENDED EDITION: Bruce enters the shower fully nude. His bare buttocks are seen in the dim lighting. This scene lasts for a few seconds.

Violence & Gore

  • The first half of the movie is very light on violence or action, apart from a city destruction scene and a car chase. In the second half, there is frequent violence involving gunfire, explosions, superpowers and hand to hand combat yet little to no blood is shown throughout the film. There are several implied deaths, but very few are shown.
  • The opening scene shows a child's parents being murdered in front of him. Although nothing is really shown, in terms of bullet impact, the scene may be too emotional/distressing for some. The father goes to punch the attacker, but is shot off-screen and then the mother wrestles with the attacker before being shot, again, off-screen. You see the parents' faces as they die.
  • A scene of mass destruction is shown as several dozen buildings collapse and explode, implying thousands or tens-of-thousands of deaths, but not a single one is shown on-screen. A man is found with his legs crushed beneath a large object, implying they are crushed, but aside from him not being able to feel them and some amount of blood there's not much more, in terms of injury detail, to that scene.
  • A man is found with a bat-symbol, burnt onto his chest like he's been branded. Photos show a man who's been killed in prison as result of his "bat-branding". The burn mark is shown again, briefly. This scene may frightened some viewers.
  • In a dream/vision, a group of soldiers shoot another group of men with no blood. Then a vigilante fights the soldiers, punching and shooting them, before snapping a man's neck, which is shown and heard. Later on in the dream/vision, a superhero walks towards the restrained vigilante who is now tied up before he shoots lasers at the two men next to the vigilante, killing them off-screen.Their muffled screams and the splatter of their guts is heard. The superhero shoves his hand into the vigilante.
  • At a senate hearing, a bomb in a man's wheelchair goes off, implying that everyone in the room, except the superhero, who appears to suffer no injury from the explosion, is killed.
  • The extended cut has added scenes of violence and is bloodier. This added violence got this cut an R.

Profanity

  • Multiple uses of oh my god, damn, crap, and hell
  • According to the English SDH subtitles on DVD and Blu-ray, there is 1 F-word in the theatrical version. When one of the officers investigates what is soon revealed to be a Bat-branding, a few seconds before Batman is shown on-screen, somebody whispers what the subtitles identify as "Oh, f**k." However, it is really hard to hear. This is also present in the Ultimate Edition.
  • Two uses of "son of a bitch". One use of "shit", multiple uses of "damn", "goddamn", "hell"
  • For those sensitive to blasphemy; misuse of "god" and "jesus christ".
  • In the extended cut, "fuck" is said twice. One time being brief.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • People are shown drinking unspecified alcohol.
  • A reference is made to man's alcohol use being so excessive that they will have an empty wine cellar.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • There is a scene where a child's parents are murdered in front of him.
  • Batman may come across as frightening to young children. Especially, in a scene early on when two policemen go upstairs to investigate the screams of a man being beaten up by Batman as the scene is almost like a horror movie. Batman is shown hiding in the shadows and eerily climbs across the ceiling to escape.
  • The film has a rather dark and depressing tone to it, making this film one of the darkest superhero movies.
