Fans attending this year’s Tribeca Film Festival are in for a treat — Joss Whedon’s superhero epic is set to close out the festival on April 28, a full week before its U.S. release.

While speaking with screenwriter Dan Mazeau, blastr uncovered some new details about “The Flash” film, which stalled after the disappointing box office performance of “Green Lantern.”
“I think Warner Bros. is finalizing their strategy of how they want to roll out their DC superheroes, and obviously they’ve got Batman in an incredibly great place, and “Green Lantern,” I think, performed okay,” Mazeau told blastr. “I think they probably would have liked it to have done better, but yeah, there is still a whole lot of excitement for the DC universe, and I know The Flash is very high on the list. It’s like anything, though. It has to come together with the right cast. It has to come together with the right director and sort of the right moment, and so they’re trying to push the rock up the hill … hopefully there will be some news soon, but right now I can’t really say anything else.”
Empire spoke with director Ridley Scott about returning to the “Alien” universe and the film’s still undetermined rating.
“The question is, do you go for the PG-13, [which] financially makes quite a difference, or do you go for what it should be, which is R? Essentially, it’s kinda R,” Scott told Empire. “It’s not just about the blood, it’s about ideas that are very stressful. I’m not an idiot, but I’ll do everything I can to get the most aggressive film I can.”
