THE PUNISHER: DIRTY LAUNDRY in RAW Entertainment Posted July 23, 2012 · Report reply The fuck are you smoking? there's no reason that a Batman movie should ever be R-rated. hat's just fanboy bullshit right there. Hey there. That's not what I said. What I was saying was that the producers of The Dark Knight films walked right up to the "R" line, and then took a couple of steps back to make it PG-13. They were not "kid friendly" Batman films. Never said that there should be an R rated Batman film. I am, however, one of those who do not agree with the version of "THE PUNISHER" presented in DIRTY LAUNDRY. Chacun son gout.
