Exactly, but you could get Superman with claws in an R-rated film. I don't think rating effects the mood or tone all that much.
Lord of the Rings, The Dark Knight, and Unbreakable are all examples of Pg-13 films that utilized mood and tone extremely well. All of those films had a more mature feeling then Origins, but they had the same rating.
Especially today. Pg-13 is much more lenient then it was ten to fifteen years ago. You have Pg-13 movies like The Grudge and The Unborn, both movies that I would have bet would have gotten R ratings fifteen years ago, and movies like LOTR and The Dark Knight that push what you can do in terms of violence (LOTR) and tone (TDK).
