Marvel Fought to Overturn R Rating for "The Avengers," What Caused the Adult Rating?

Posted: March 13th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Marvel Fought to Overturn R Rating for "The Avengers," What Caused the Adult Rating?Submit Comment
While promoting "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," Marvel head Kevin Feige was asked if the film had trouble securing a PG-13 rating. Feige said "no," but went on to say that "The Avengers" received an R-rated twice.

"When we submitted 'The Avengers,' the first couple cuts of it came back from the MPAA rated R. That happened twice," he revealed. "So we went back and had to make adjustments."

When asked to explain what scenes in "The Avengers" caused all the problems, Feige said it had a lot to do with Agent Coulson. "Well, whenever you impale somebody from their back and the blade comes out their chest, there are issues."

Should have just made the impaling bloodless and more implied. Problem solved.

But they had to have that strong motivator, like a bunch of superheroes wouldn't naturally team up to save their own world from destruction without the death of some guy they neither really liked nor really knew.

And cue the "XXX rating for ScarJo's "impaling"" jokes.

Similar issue with DareDevil. They got around it the same way they did in the comic; they just ket the shirt over the blade.

Close to being more overrated than avatar, most marvel are the same generic sh*t, get your head out of your asses audience.

Well, remember that part where Banner wakes up naked with Harry Dean Stanton standing over him? Yeah, there was a bit more to that scenario.

Hunger Games has scenes of children getting killed and but this they gave an R-rating to for one f*cking scene?! Does anyone have a brain in Hollywood or common sense for that matter?! Yes that second question was rhetorical as sh*t. LOL

Well, Sleuth, if it makes you feel any better, The Human Centipede is rated R, which makes Avengers-c*m-blood equivalent to that film, at least as far as the MPAA goes, which is why I think there was far more going on.

Black widow's ass and boobs = rated R. Now that's a rating criteria that I can agree upon.

@mink
Not really. LOL That just says that the MPAA can see the obvious stuff when you need to give a movie an R rating.
