The Real Reason Thor: Love And Thunder Is Rated PG-13

"Thor: Love and Thunder" is here, and it offers more in the continuing adventures of the God of Thunder and his buddies. This time around, the Norse god has to go toe-to-toe with the villainous (if not a tad sympathetic) Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale). Gorr has made a pledge to do away with all gods across the cosmos, and his journey sees him seeking out Eternity to make a wish to rid the universe of gods once and for all. 

This obviously doesn't sit well with Thor (Chris Hemsworth), so he recruits Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi), and his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who now wields the power of Thor, to stop Gorr. It's an action-packed romp with plenty of humor thrown in to keep fans glued to their seats throughout the entire runtime. 

Much like every other movie set within the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far, the film has been rated PG-13. That means kids younger than 13 can still see it with parental supervision. But is the film suitable for younger kids, or is this one you should wait until they're a little older?

Thor: Love and Thunder contains language, violence, and partial nudity

The Motion Picture Association of America gave "Thor: Love and Thunder" a rating of PG-13 for "intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, language, some suggestive material and partial nudity." Much of this is par the course for Marvel movies. They all come with sci-fi violence and action, and "Thor: Love and Thunder" is no different. There are numerous sequences of the God of Thunder and his allies beating up aliens and shadow monsters. 

The language the rating refers to is mild and, once again, is something we've seen in MCU pictures of the past. The main point in the rating that's a first for an MCU film is the "partial nudity." At one point in the movie, which was showcased in the trailers, Zeus (Russell Crowe) flicks away Thor's garments, exposing him to the rest of the gods. The audience gets a chance to see Chris Hemsworth bare all, as we see his butt in a shot. 

For all the parents out there wondering if they should bring their kids to see "Thor: Love and Thunder," it's up to your own discretion. If you're all right with them seeing other Marvel movies, "Love and Thunder" is roughly in the same ballpark. Use your best judgment with knowing what your kids can handle.
