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! (And I’m not ranking these movies by the way.)
As someone who’s a little older Ant-Man can be a little cheesy at times but younger children will have a blast watching this film. There isn’t a lot of profanity, the violence is contained and not that graphic, and it’s a fun film filled with a lot of humor. Children will quickly fall in love with Ant-Man after seeing this movie.
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 it isn’t filled with a whole bunch of profanity. 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.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is a tad bit less appropriate than its predecessor but it still is a great movie for children as we get to see the Guardians on a new adventure. And Baby Groot will melt the heart of any child.
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 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.
While Doctor Strange is undoubtedly a little darker in tone than these other Marvel movies I’ve presented so far it’s still a great movie for children due to Doctor Strange’s awesomeness. There isn’t a lot of cursing, there isn’t any suggestive content, and it’s a great movie. Some moments in the film may be a bit scary for children (like the hand part when Doctor Strange was being shown the different realms) but besides that children will love Doctor Strange.
Captain America: The First Avenger
Children will love Captain America’s origin story as he turned from unhealthy soldier to HYDRA-fighting superhero. There is a bit of romantic drama but overall there isn’t really anything inappropriate about this film in the slightest. It isn’t the best Marvel movie ever made but children will undoubtedly enjoy watching the heroics of Captain America.
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 at 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 all of the Marvel films. This movie will make children happy from beginning to end and that’s always awesome.
So, these are Marvel’s ten most kid-friendly films. I refrained from adding the Iron Man series because those movies are a bit more adult than these movies on this list. Black Panther is also a bit dark for children at a young age and Avengers: Infinity War is about as dark and gloomy as it gets as we see characters get pummeled endlessly and eventually killed (at least momentarily.) I was horrified when I saw the ending of Infinity War. Imagine how a child would react to that terrible conclusion.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
