Marvel has become a wonderful franchise that people of all ages can enjoy. Some Marvel films are catered to an older audience while others may appeal to younger fans. But which of these movies are the most kid-friendly of the bunch? That’s what I’m here to share with you. Enjoy!
While Ant-Man is catered to a younger audience with a tamer storyline, a villain that isn’t too scary, and an actual child who plays a small but very important role in the film, this movie can also have some rather shocking profanity throughout it. There’s a balance between kid-friendly themes as well as more adult-level jokes and situations but overall it’s a fun film for the whole family.
Ant-Man and the Wasp
Like Ant-Man, Ant-Man and the Wasp is a fun movie that caters heavily toward children. It isn’t dark and gloomy like some of the other Marvel films and, in fact, it has less profanity than its predecessor. It’s simply a fun movie that’ll have your kids bouncing in their seat with joy.
Guardians of the Galaxy
Guardians of the Galaxy is colorful, entertaining, and has a whole bunch of characters one can’t help but enjoy. While the Ant-Man series won’t expose your children to a whole lot of profanity the same cannot be said for the Guardians films. These characters say plenty of foul words but besides that, it’s totally suitable for children.
When the world needs saving there’s no team better for the job than Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, The Avengers. This movie is packed with action from the beginning and doesn’t contain a lot of dark themes which makes it the perfect superhero movie for children. Your child will be able to see all of his or her favorite superheroes unite to save the world and you won’t even have to worry about the content. That’s a win-win scenario.
Avengers: Age of Ultron
Avengers: Age of Ultron sees our favorite heroes return for another round of world-saving. This movie is a bit less appropriate for children as it explores Bruce Banner and Natasha’s awkward romance and we see a cool character in Quicksilver die which may make your kids a bit sad. But, for the most part, it’s another fantastic Marvel film for children.
Sad, yes. Heartbreaking, absolutely. However, Avengers: Endgame is designed with a larger audience in mind. The darker tones presented in Infinity War are eradicated replaced with a livelier story that should have your children beaming with joy. There’s barely any romance in the film. Just classic comradery, delivering a powerful finale that will bring your children’s favorite Marvel superheroes to the party.
Black Panther has the darkest tone of any film on this list but beyond the adult themes and darker storytelling lies a hero and a story that children will love. From the magical world of Wakanda to the fantastic characters and action scenes, Black Panther will have your kids saying, “Wakanda Forever!” as quickly as they might say, “May the Force be with you.”
Captain Marvel is as about as kid-friendly as you can get for a superhero movie. There’s barely any cursing, no heavy romantic plots, the villain isn’t too scary, and any adult jokes will completely fly over your little ones’ heads. Captain Marvel is the perfect superhero film for children.
Thor: Ragnarok, like the Guardian of the Galaxy films, is colorful, full of lovable characters, and is a fantastic adventure that children will absolutely love. The Hulk is at his funniest in this film and will provide children plenty of laughs. Thor is also at his most comical in this entry which actually made him ten times cooler. And the movie is simply a blast to watch.
The profanity isn’t strong but some of the jokes can be a little adult but those jokes will easily pass over a child’s head. Overall, this is a movie your children will ABSOLUTELY love and there’s no need to worry because the content is totally suitable for children.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is probably the most kid-friendly Marvel movie there is as it follows the story of well, a teenager who wants to become an Avenger. What can be more kid-friendly than that? The movie never becomes too dark or scary and the profanity is at the lowest level of nearly all of the Marvel films, expectedly. This movie will make children happy from beginning to end and that’s always awesome.
So, after long and hard deliberation, I feel that these are Marvel’s ten most kid-friendly films.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
