Per the norm, fan reaction is split regarding why the need for a superhero movie to be rated-R (that's not Deadpool). While some are in favor of potentially seeing Batman knock the crud out of the villains (and Superman?), others are questioning whether or not we'll get a Batman who will swear or even Superman more violent than killing Zod in Man of Steel.
It is possible the R-rated director's cut of Batman Vs. Superman could feature numerous f-bombs as I believe one f-bomb is allowed in PG-13 rated movies; however, the MPAA specifically mentions violence, so we could see a lot more blood and gore than we're used to (for instance in the Nolan Batman movies or the Marvel "popcorn" films).
