Avengers Endgame Parental Movie Guide
Marvel Avengers: Endgame has to be the most anticipated movie ever. Regardless if you are a fan or not, Captain Marvel set an amazing interest in the next Marvel chapter. As a family of Marvel fans, we are ready to share the story together. After Infinity War (PG 13), I know we have become a bit more cautious about the movie ratings for Marvel families. It can be tricky, particularly after Captain Marvel and AntMan And The Wasp. I will say this before getting into details: for me as Marvel fan, it was a true roller coaster of a movie. I laughed. I cried tears of joy and sadness. I cheered, laughed and cried again. If there were any cameras in the theaters, they got some ugly cry in there. Bring tissues and buckle up for another amazing and epic Marvel movie.
Is Avengers Endgame Kid-Friendly (for kids under 13)
It is fantastic to see all of our superheroes back on the big screen. You know I am all about IronMan. But the way the character evolves for Black Widow, as well as Nebula and Hulk, is huge to see unfold. Endgame does more than connect a few dots. It comes full circle and ties up all loose ends. If you debate about taking your younger Marvel fans to watch this awesome new movie, consider the points below. This should help you understand what is in store for kids under 13. Consider these points for kids under 13 without giving any spoilers:
ACTION – VIOLENCE
There is plenty of action. There is violence. Each of our favorite heroes at some point gets into action to defend the planet or themselves. Expect cool moves, fights, close combat, multiple people combat and yes, death (I didn’t say who, so still spoiler-free).
LANGUAGE AND GESTURES
Clean cut Captain America gives us language in the trailers. This, however, does not mean that the movie is filled with foul language. Yes, there is more of it. No rude gestures that I can remember.
There are several intense moments. It is a kind of work hard, play hard kind of movie where your emotions will be strong. You will laugh hard, cry hard and cheer hard. During the entire film, the audience was immersed in the movie as much as we were. My little one sat on the edge, fidgeted, tensed up and pumped his first in the air more than once.
THE STRANGE THINGS
You know what I am talking about if you read my “Is Infinity War Kid Friendly” review. It is more than that in this case, it is about disappearances, death, quantum realm and the objective the Avengers have set for themselves or returning things to where they were pre-Thanos.
On another note, going back in time with CG brings back some cool characters. Some kids might need a little reminder who ther are so the scenes make sense to them.
Cool mom tip: the sensitive ones will need to be looked after when death is dealt with. Same with intense/tense moments and fights
As expected the brain power of Tony Stark comes to life. While science is discussed it is not as central as the quantum realm is to AntMan and The Wasp.
LENGTH OF THE MOVIE
I am happy to take the three hours the movie lasts. But little ones might start to get tired after two hours. More importantly, you need snacks and need to pace the rate of water or juice intake. If you blink you are sure to miss something important. You don’t want that. So you want to avoid potty breaks.
WATCHING Avengers Endgame WITH KIDS UNDER 13
If your Marvel family usually overlooks the movie ratings and take your kids to the movies, Endgame gives me less pause than Infinity War did despite the deaths. Just make sure you talk it over with the kids before you watch it together. There is mention of families in different respects, but it is definitively not a family movie like I believe AntMan and The Wasp is.
My best suggestion is to have a date night or fangirl night out to scout the movie and get a true feel for your little ones because, after all, every child is different. The truth is that this is another Marvel movie you will want to watch more than once. There is lots to enjoy, digest and appreciate as it all falls into place for a final time for us.
Cool mom fun: take in the girl power high five the movie makes! Celebrate is as we did for The Wasp
About Avengers: Endgame
The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, “Avengers: Endgame.”
Kevin Feige produces “Avengers: Endgame,” and Anthony and Joe Russo are the directors. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo, Trinh Tran, Jon Favreau, James Gunn and Stan Lee are the executive producers, and Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely wrote the screenplay.
