The Flash Movie Is Set To Break New Ground In The DCU With A Mature Pg-13 Rating And Partial Nudity, Featuring A Star-studded Cast And An Exciting Multiverse Story.
Warner Bros. recently announced that the upcoming DCU film, The Flash, will carry a more mature rating compared to other superhero movies. The movie will explore various eras in the DC universe, featuring Ezra Miller as The Flash, Sasha Calle as Supergirl, and Michael Keaton reprising his role as Batman from 1989.
The Flash will connect to earlier DCEU films, including the Justice League, and showcase a complex narrative involving heroes and villains from multiple universes. Fans are eager to discover the extent of intense action in the second DCU film of 2023.
Film Ratings confirmed that The Flash will carry a PG-13 rating from the Motion Picture Association of America. This rating acknowledges the expected action and violence of a superhero movie, but also includes a note for “partial nudity,” a rarity among DC blockbusters.
The 2016 Suicide Squad film also had a PG-13 rating with “suggestive content,” while 2021’s The Suicide Squad, directed by James Gunn, was the first in the franchise to receive an R-rating due to graphic violence, drug use, and “graphic nudity.”
The Flash’s PG-13 rating suggests the movie may push some limits within the genre. However, as demonstrated by other films like 2022’s Thor: Love and Thunder, this rating may not necessarily indicate excessive mature content. A risqué DC Comics cover from summer 2022 depicted The Flash partially nude, which could potentially be a scene in the upcoming film.
The marketing campaign for The Flash continues to build excitement, but the exact reasoning behind the PG-13 rating remains unconfirmed. The movie is scheduled to hit theaters on June 16.
