    Just a false rumour It's 100% not an R movie at all and it's official that it's PG-13 or just above that.

    I don’t believe making it bloody or sexy will make it a better movie you saw freaking Hawkeyes first fight in endgame no needless blood still awesome to watch

    It would be fun to see R rated Marvel movies. I am 15ish so I can't see them without a parent. My parents don't take me to see R movies. I only saw IT because it was just horror, not sex and violence. It would ruin my friend's and I tradition of seeing every Marvel movie together WITHOUT our parents.

    But the thing is, does any Disney movie have a R rating? Marvel is owned by Disney, I think it may not be able to help them.. yknow, less box office, less minors watching. I dunno.

    Dose anyone remember the children. If there are R rated movies in the MCU and there is a big Marvel meet up that’s pg13 then kids won’t know what is happening. Sorry but it’s true.

    I see your point about how BW would benefit from being R. However, over 50% of their viewers are Preeteens and Teens who wouldn't be able to go see it.

    Just saying, that astromech picture is not pink, it’s faded red and I think it’s meant to be the droid that Luke and his uncle originally picked over R2 and switch because of his faulty “motivator”

    On one side is Marvel movie fight violence, and on the other is Mortal Combat. Plz find a middle ground

    The Bourne trilogy was PG-13 and those movies were plenty serious and very intense.

    I would be all for an R rating for violence, but not sexual content or even language. We dont need sex scenes and f bombs, but the violence could be stepped up and have some cool opportunities there.

    I am personally excited with the idea of a serious, gruesome and dark movie like venom was SUPPOSED to be, while also being a part of something i enjoy, being marvel. The only thing preventing me from watching it would likely be my mother because well.. self explanatory reasons, i cant even watch deadpool lol

  • Owen Ward

    Black Widow being an R rating makes sense, because as an origin story (which I assume it is) it doesn’t have any direct affect to the current mcu story, so it isn’t a vital watch to stay up to date with the series. If the younger audience don’t see it, it won’t impact their viewing of future mcu movies, but gives a back story to the character for those of us that are interested in it. I don’t think the younger audience would be too interested in what happened in the past as much as they are in what’s happening in the present

    I think it's rather absurd that they restrict PG-13 movies so much when it comes to blood and violence. You see Rated R amounts of blood and violence all the time on prime time TV shows these days, so why not in PG-13 movies? It makes zero sense to me. As long as bodies aren't exploding in a sea of organs and limbs then I see no reason why their stance on blood shouldn't be loosened a bit when it comes to PG-13 movies these days.

  • TheOneAndOnlyStuart

    “This should be be rated R and here’s why” immediately praise a PG-13 movie series for accomplishing what a PG-13 series cannot accomplish...
    Did he think the Bourne series was rated R?

    So John Wick violence with Scarlett Jo tearing people up?
    Sounds good.
    And it'd be easy enough to cut a PG-13 major Disney release and an R rated version a few months later, Deadpool style...

    I think it's good for Disney to break the seal on R-rated movies. Batman should be Tom Cruise. A weird Batman casting would be Leonardo Di Caprio or Henry Cavill.

    Can you zoom in on the shots that you reference behind you so we can actually get a good look at the shots you are talking about? You are sitting there describing it, when you can put it up on screen for us to see as you describe it. I'm looking at you Harley Quinn shot at the exotic animal store.

    I disagree with your premise that it would feel "neutered" if it were PG-13... The Bourne saga (which you do mention) is a perfect example that it can still be powerful and real without the R-rating. I'd prefer we not go down the R-rated rabbit hole in the MCU. By the way, love you guys and USUALLY agree with you! :)

    James gunn was fired from Disney over stupid stuff. He should have never gotten fired. GOTG will not be the same now that he is gone. Funny how he is being picked up to direct a DCEU movie.

    • snoger50
      snoger50 4 months ago +1

      we have all done something stupid in the past and learned from all of our mistakes, apologized for it and people forgave. but it seems like in this generation, we are all still guilty, get repercussions of it, still get slammed by every MSM outlet, then get fired. there is not forgive and forget anymore. people need to realize this or none of us in the world will ever be "worthy" of work anywhere? INKIAD KABIR, are you perfect? I think not.

      bbsy1 Venom isn’t connected to the MCU. It’s on a separate universe by Sony’s Spider verse

    A black widow movie will probably be seperate from the broader universe of MCU. we'll definitley have a Bond/Mission Impossible type of feel with this movie. It will put the Comic genre in a different fresh spot.

    If Disney didn't make Venom rated R they won't make Black Widow rated R

    Black Widow rated R is very interesting and exciting and I think it opens the door to more possibilitys and what about a Deadpool or X-Force because when they had Deadpool rated R it made a gross of over 850 million worldwide and that doesn't include China because they don't allow for R or Whinnie the Pooh and when they made it rated PG-13 it grossed just over 300 million worldwide and that includes China so it loses money when you bring down the ranking and Domino was amazing

    If it's R rated it's not gonna guarantee a great movie, can this director and writer put out a good story. Violence doesn't make a good story either. If that's what you need then try again.
    Bourne is PG-13
    Mission impossible PG-13
    Action. Period.
    If it's MCU and goes R it will loose alot of audience
