Excitement is mounting as Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom finally receives its official rating from the MPAA. However, fans anticipating an epic and game-changing adventure may be in for a slight disappointment as the movie is awarded the typical PG-13 rating by DC Studios. This rating is due to the presence of “sci-fi violence and some language” throughout the film.
Many fans were speculating if the movie would follow the storyline from the comics and depict the infanticide of the child of Jason Momoa’s Aquaman. However, it appears that DC Studios has decided to play it safe with the sequel, leaving audiences wondering if this conservative approach will be enough to save the DCU.
The Future of the DC Universe
Both James Gunn and Peter Safran, the creative minds behind the revitalization of the DC Universe, have shed light on their vision for the franchise. They revealed that their plan involves locked scripts, room for flexibility, and a unified storyline that spans across films, television, animation, and video game projects. The duo emphasized the possibility of incorporating elements from previous DC regimes into the new vision, indicating that a full reboot is not on the cards.
Already, we have seen the release of Shazam! Fury of the Gods, The Flash, and Blue Beetle following the announcement of this new direction for the DCU. With Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom still on track for its theatrical release in 2023, speculations arise about whether characters from these movies will make appearances in the revitalized DC Universe. Only Gunn and Safran hold the answers, leaving fans eagerly awaiting any hints or announcements.
