The New Mutants is rated PG-13 in the U.S., and always has been, according to Josh Boone. New set pictures from The Batman could give a mysterious glimpse at Robert Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne. Oliver Queen becomes the Spectre in new Crisis on Infinite Earths art. Plus, new looks at Batwoman and Riverdale’s returns. Spoilers, away!
The Purge 5
Deadline reports Lee Rambin (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, The Hunter Games) has joined the cast of the currently untitled fifth Purge movie in an undisclosed role.
The New Mutants
According to director Josh Boone—and later reiterated by classic illustrator Bill Sienkiewicz—New Mutants is, and has always been, rated PG-13 (equivalent to M in Australia, although the film has not been rated locally yet).
Scary film at PG-13. The atmosphere, mystery, & tone of Josh’s direction makes it work. The cast is stellar, not horror tropes who split from the group 1 by 1 like idiots only to get offed. They’re a team united; forged by the horror, and that’s new take. Bravo Josh & Co. https://t.co/HDpCZNp9Ro
