The Flash Movie Rating Confirmed, Includes “Partial Nudity”

DC Studios might have a hit on their hands with the upcoming Ezra Miller-led The Flash movie based on early reactions from James Gunn, David Zaslav, and even Tom Cruise. Gunn has called The Flash one of the best superhero movies he’s ever seen, while Cruise reportedly called director Andy Muschietti to give the film praise after watching it. Excitement for The Flash is at an all-time high due to word of mouth and that awesome first trailer, and now we finally know what the movie will be rated. According to the MPA’s, The Flash will be rated PG-13 for “sequences of violence and action, some strong language and partial nudity.”

What is The Flash about?

Warner Bros. describes the film as follows: “Worlds collide in “The Flash” when Barry uses his superpowers to travel back in time in order to change the events of the past. But when his attempt to save his family inadvertently alters the future, Barry becomes trapped in a reality in which General Zod has returned, threatening annihilation, and there are no Super Heroes to turn to. That is, unless Barry can coax a very different Batman out of retirement and rescue an imprisoned Kryptonian… albeit not the one he’s looking for. Ultimately, to save the world that he is in and return to the future that he knows, Barry’s only hope is to race for his life. But will making the ultimate sacrifice be enough to reset the universe?”

What’s Happening at DC Studios?

Gunn and Safran began their jobs as Co-CEO’s of DC Studios last year and it’s safe to say that the future of DC is looking bright. When the duo was announced by the new Warner Bros. Discovery boss, they released a statement on their excitement for the job.

“We’re honored to be the stewards of these DC characters we’ve loved since we were children,” Gunn and Safran added in a joint statement. “We look forward to collaborating with the most talented writers, directors, and actors in the world to create an integrated, multilayered universe that still allows for the individual expression of the artists involved. Our commitment to Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Harley Quinn, and the rest of the DC stable of characters is only equaled by our commitment to the wonder of human possibility these characters represent. We’re excited to invigorate the theatrical experience around the world as we tell some of the biggest, most beautiful, and grandest stories ever told.”

The Flash hits theaters on June 16th!
