Captain Marvel Sequel “The Marvels” Receives Official Rating from MPAA
The highly-awaited Captain Marvel sequel, The Marvels, has received its official rating from the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), and fans are eagerly anticipating its release. The film is a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and is set to hit the theaters soon, with an additional IMAX release, which was postponed due to the delayed release of Dune: Part II. The movie stars Brie Larson, who reprises her role as Carol Danvers, also known as Captain Marvel. The Marvels brings together the characters of Kamala Khan and Monica Rambeau, making it an exciting and action-packed superhero movie. The film has a massive budget of over $274.8 million, making it one of the most expensive productions in the MCU (according to Forbes). In this sequel, the trio of superheroes faces off against the formidable Kree leader, Dar-Benn, portrayed by Zawe Aston. Interestingly, Dar-Benn wields a bangle that bears a striking resemblance to a familiar object featured in a recent trailer, which has left fans speculating about what it could be. Overall, The Marvels promises to be an epic addition to the MCU, filled with thrilling action and a storyline that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats.
The Marvels Gets Official Rating
The Marvels, a highly anticipated movie starring Brie Larson, has been officially rated by the MPAA. As expected, the movie has been given a PG-13 rating, indicating that it will include content related to “action/violence and brief language.” Interestingly, all previous movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have also received the same rating, albeit with varying justifications. For instance, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, directed by James Gunn, has been classified as PG-13 due to “intense sequences of violence and action, strong language, suggestive/drug references, and thematic elements.” On the other hand, Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, set to release in 2023, has been described more succinctly as containing “violence/action, and language.” Overall, it is expected that The Marvels will deliver an action-packed and thrilling experience for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
More Family-Friendly Marvel Fun
It’s hardly surprising that Marvel Studios has opted for a PG-13 rating for its upcoming superhero blockbuster, The Marvels. As the film is expected to bring together three popular heroes, namely Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, and Monica Rambeau, the studio likely wants to ensure that as many viewers as possible can enjoy their on-screen adventures.
While the absence of “strong language” in The Marvels doesn’t necessarily mean there won’t be any colorful language, fans shouldn’t expect the kind of profanity that can raise eyebrows and elicit gasps. After all, Marvel has always been known for its family-friendly fare, and the studio is unlikely to change its approach with this movie.
For those hoping for a more adult-oriented Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) experience, Deadpool 3 is the film to look forward to. The upcoming sequel promises to break new ground by becoming the first R-rated film in the MCU. While it may seem a bit unusual for a franchise that has always been geared towards a younger audience, Marvel Studios seems to have faith in the project, considering the involvement of Ryan Reynolds and the addition of characters like Wolverine and the Time Variance Authority (TVA) from Loki.
If Deadpool 3 proves to be a hit with audiences, Marvel could potentially greenlight more R-rated superhero films in the future. One possible candidate is Blade, which will star Academy Award-winning actor Mahershala Ali. While it’s unclear what rating the film will receive, it’s not hard to imagine an R-rated Blade movie that explores the darker, more violent side of the MCU.
The Marvels is scheduled to be released in theaters on November 10.
