The latest installment in the growing Marvel Cinematic Universe is now in theaters. Naturally, you want to take the whole family to watch Spider-Man: Far From Home, but is it suitable for young viewers?
Spider-Man: Far From Home is now in theaters! As the first post-Endgame movie, it has a lot to live up to, to say the least. Needless to say, this movie is one you’ll want (and need) to watch as soon as possible, and definitely on the big screen. If you don’t catch Far From Home in theaters soon, you risk massive spoilers, and nobody wants that!
As a parent, though, you’re likely wondering if your young one can tag along to see this one. While most movies in the MCU are great for the whole family, there are a few that you may want to shield your 4-year-old from. Is Far From Home one of these movies? Let’s have a look!
According to Common Sense Media, Far From Home is recommended for children over the age of 11. Yikes, that’s a bit drastic, in my opinion. Now, please note, I’m no expert! To each their own as all kiddos are different and you know yours best. That said, I believe children over 6 can safely enjoy this movie. Even a mature 5-year-old will be fine, in my opinion.
If you want my take, Spider-Man: Homecoming features more stressing moments, blood, and events than Far From Home does! Spoiler alert: In Homecoming, a scene finds Peter Parker truly struggling and near death. Far From Home, however, doesn’t beat Parker as badly. Far From Home is also more action-packed and fun than Homecoming, which kids will enjoy and keep then entertained.
In the end, it’s up to you! Spider-Man: Far From Home is now playing in theaters and is rated PG-13 for sci-fi action violence, some language and brief suggestive comments.
