‘The Flash’ Cut ‘R-Rated’ Fight Scenes With Sasha Calle’s Supergirl

Early reviews have raved that Sasha Calle’s Supergirl is the highlight of The Flash. According to the actress, her portrayal could have been much different, as the film cut some ‘R-Rated scenes’ with her character.

Sasha Calle recently spoke about her time as Supergirl, including her intense training and the stunt work she had to do for the film to bring the character to life. However, not all of her fight scenes made it to screen, as she revealed that some of the ‘R-rated’ scenes from a silo sequence were left on the cutting room floor:

For those unaware, the silo sequence in The Flash is likely a callback to the scene in the original Flashpoint comic where Barry Allen, Cyborg and a Thomas Wayne Batman break Superman out of a government facility. In the animated Flashpoint Paradox adaptation, this led to Superman slaughtering dozens of innocent guards before fleeing. Though given how brutal Sasha Calle’s Supergirl is in the film, it leaves fans to wonder how ‘R-rated’ those scenes were that necessitated them being cut.

The Flash’s DC Universe future

Warner Bros. Discovery already has a script for a potential sequel to The Flash, written by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, the man behind the two Aquaman movies starring Jason Momoa. However, James Gunn and Peter Safran did not discuss the Flash sequel during their DC Universe presentation.

Directed by Andy Muschietti from a script written by Birds of Prey scribe Christina Hodson, The Flash is inspired by the Flashpoint comic book storyline, which followed Barry Allen as he navigated an altered DC Universe. Written by Geoff Johns and penciled by Andy Kuber, Flashpoint radically altered the status of the DC Comics universe and led to the launch of the New 52 titles.

In addition to Ezra Miller, The Flash also features Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck as two separate versions of Batman, Ron Livingston as Henry Allen, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Antje Traue as Faora-Ul and Sasha Calle as Supergirl. Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Rudy Mancuso and Luke Brandon Field are also on board in undisclosed roles.
