The highly-anticipated Marvel Studios movie is finally here! Many are eager to see the Multiverse of Madness, but is it too scary for younger viewers?
For starters, it’s fair to say that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is the scariest MCU installment to date. Director Sam Raimi is known for directing Sony’s original Spider-Man trilogy with Tobey Maguire, but he’s also a notable horror filmmaker, mainly for the Evil Dead franchise.
Raimi brings some of those horror stylings to the Doctor Strange sequel. There are a few jump scares and frightening images that might be too intense for younger viewers. Ultimately, it depends on your kid and what they’re used to. But it is still a PG-13 rated movie. If it helps your judgment, I’d say it’s on par to frightening scenes from Pirates of the Caribbean.
As you can imagine, this is still a Marvel movie, so the camera draws focus away from the gory details, but if your little ones aren’t good with onscreen character deaths, you’re right to be cautious.
We are avoiding spoilers while giving fair warning for parents who want to make judgment calls for their little ones.
Demon creatures, brutal character deaths, and shocking jump scares make this an intense cinematic ride for the MCU.
At the end of the day, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is still a Marvel movie. It keeps to the entertaining brand of superhero fare and brings a suitable level of comedy to the mix. It was entertaining to us and we know we’ll be rewatching it soon!
