The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

Sex & Nudity

Minor sexual references.

Violence & Gore

People get punched, kicked, thrown, bashed, smashed, kneed, stabbed, shot (with arrows, bullets and ray guns) and vaporized. There are multiple massive fight scenes, and the climactic battle seems to last for about 45 minutes. We see cars crash and spaceships smash into buildings.

We learn later that Loki's killed 80 people in two days. When he stabs one man in the back, we see the blade protrude from his victim's chest with blood on the edges.

We learn that Bruce Banner tried to kill himselfhe shot himself in the mouth, he says, but "the other guy" (the Hulk) spit the bullet out.

Profanity

There are five or six uses each of "Hell" and "Damn," and one or two each of "Ass," "Piss," "Bitch" and "Bastard." Loki hurls out the British anatomical vulgarity "quim" as a sexist putdown. God's name is thoughtlessly interjected a couple of times in the form of "oh my god."

Tony and Pepper sip champagne, and Tony offers Loki a drink before pouring himself a glass of whiskey. Tony asks Bruce if he stays under control with the help of "a huge bag of weed."

There are several prolonged and intense action sequences, but they're not shot in an overtly horrific or graphic way, and there are also many comedic moments throughout the film that lighten the tension.

A superhero intercepts a nuclear missile headed for Manhattan, forces it into a portal leading to an alien base, and agrees to call his girlfriend (implying that he understands he might die); however, the call fails and he stares at the exploding alien base while falling back through the portal (he is unconscious as he plummets toward the earth but he is saved before hitting the ground and is revealed to be alive and unharmed).
