If you’re a fan of Marvel movies, you might be aware that most of them are rated PG-13 or higher. However, there are a few exceptions to this rule. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at the Marvel movies that have received a PG rating and what that means for younger viewers.
What Does PG Rating Mean
Before we dive into the specific Marvel movies that are rated PG, let’s first clarify what a PG rating entails. According to the Motion Picture Association (MPA), a movie with a PG rating may contain material that parents deem inappropriate for children under 10 years old. The movie may include some mild language, violence, and adult themes, but it does not reach the level of intensity seen in R-rated movies.
Marvel Movies That Are Rated PG
Currently, there are only two Marvel movies that have received a PG rating:
- Ant-Man and The Wasp (2018)
- Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018)
Both of these movies are spin-offs from the main Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) storyline and are geared towards younger audiences.
Ant-Man and The Wasp
In Ant-Man and The Wasp, Scott Lang (played by Paul Rudd) teams up with Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) to embark on an urgent new mission. Their goal is to uncover secrets from their past while trying to save Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) from the quantum realm.
The movie is action-packed with plenty of humor and heartwarming moments throughout. It’s a perfect movie for families to watch together, and the PG rating ensures that younger children won’t be exposed to any overly intense or inappropriate content.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is an animated movie that follows Miles Morales (voiced by Shameik Moore) as he becomes the Spider-Man of his reality. Along the way, he meets other versions of Spider-Man from different dimensions, including Peter B. Parker (voiced by Jake Johnson) and Gwen Stacy (voiced by Hailee Steinfeld).
The movie is visually stunning with a unique animation style that sets it apart from other superhero movies. It also has a great soundtrack and a diverse cast of characters that appeals to all ages.
While most Marvel movies are rated PG-13 or higher, there are a few exceptions that have received a PG rating. Ant-Man and The Wasp and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse are both fantastic movies that are suitable for younger audiences while still entertaining for older viewers.
If you’re looking for something to watch with your kids or just want a break from the more intense Marvel movies, these two options are definitely worth checking out!
