AVENGERS: ENDGAME Has Officially Been Rated PG-13 By The MPAA, But What For?

Certified by the MPAA, Marvel's Avengers: Endgame has received a PG-13 rating. And with the film finally locked, finished and ready for release, fans are dreading the longest three weeks in history...

After a long day of press, Anthony and Joe Russo finished up what is sure to be one of the most significant events in film history. With box office tracking going through the roof, and fans spending several hours a day anticipating the epic, Avengers: Endgame has the makings of a cinematic event that won't be topped for decades.

With the film locked and ready for the release, it is common practice for studios to send their films out to the MPAA for ratings certification. As expected, the film has earned a PG-13 rating from the association, but what for? The certification cites Endgame's "sequences of sci-fi voilence and action and some language" as the reason behind the rating.

Compared to Avengers: Infinity War, Endgame's result is not much different, albiet a bit shorter than the former's "Intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action throughout, language and some crude references." 

Though not in this case, the Avengers franchise has had trouble with the MPAA in the past. In fact, Coulson's death almost gave Joss Whedon's 2012 predecessor and Phase One culmination an R rating instead of the PG-13 MPAA certification it ultimately received. 

Are you excited to see what Endgame has in store? Of course you are. Sound off below.
