The next DC animated movie, “Justice League: Warworld” has received an official MPA rating of “R” for “some bloody violence”.
The R (or Restricted) rating requires viewers under 17 years of age to be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian.
Until now, the Justice League has been a loose association of superpowered individuals. But when they are swept away to Warworld, a place of unending brutal gladiatorial combat, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and the others must somehow unite to form an unbeatable resistance able to lead an entire planet to freedom.
The voice cast includes Darren Criss as Superman/Agent Kent, Jensen Ackles as Batman/Officer Wayne, and Stana Katic as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. Joining them are Ike Amadi as Martian Manhunter/J’onn J’onzz, Troy Baker as Jonah Hex, Matt Bomer as Old Man, Roger C. Cross as Machiste, Brett Dalton as Bat Lash, Trevor Duvall as Drifter, John DiMaggio as Lobo, Robin Atkin Downes as Mongul, Frank Grillo as Agent Faraday, Rachel Kimsey as Mariah Romanova, David Lodge as Sheriff, and Damian O’Hare as Deimos and Teddy Sears as Warlord.

The producers are Jim Krieg (The Death and Return of Superman) and Kimberly S. Moreau (Batman: The Doom That Came to Gotham).
