MPAA Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, frightening images and some language.

Sex & Nudity

  • It is implied that America Chavez mothers are lesbians

Violence & Gore

  • A monster's eye socket is hit with a weapon. After that, its eye is thrown out of its body. Quite gross and can disgust some viewers
  • A character gets hit by magical powers
  • Someone gets their face ripped in half, brief and not graphic
  • A woman gets squashed by a pillar, only a part of her hand is shown.
  • Two characters have a fistfight. It is not very bloody and neither character is severely harmed.
  • Several people are shown burning to death.
  • Most of the violence is quite gory (In fact this is the goriest MCU film by a mile) but there is minimal blood, and the over-the-top effects and fast editing make the gruesome deaths feel less violent then they are.
  • This movie isn't gore, it has the same level of violence as every other mcu movie. Wanda is not stained with blood, is oil. The most violent thing of the movie could be the head explosion of one character in particular, but not explicit.
  • One character gets thrown out of a big window, crashing the glass upon impact, falling off a big cliff while it keeps screaming, and ultimately landing on the spikes of a fence with its back, thus getting graphically impaled. A small amount of black blood is seen around the injury. Probably the most shocking and disturbing scene in terms of graphic violence.


  • Some mild uses of "shit", "ass", "bitch" and "damn"
  • 1 use of "God damn!"

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • A few alcoholic drinks at a wedding. No one gets drunk.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Very many creepy scenes involving Wanda and Doctor Strange
  • Overall, it's far more intense and scary than the other Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, leaning into the horror genre. Not for younger viewers.
  • Some jumpscares


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • At the beginning of the movie a decomposing body is briefly shown numerous times. Later in the movie, it gets reanimated.
  • At the start of the movie, an alternate doctor strange gets impaled in his leg by a monster. It is shown in full detail a few seconds later.
  • The souls of the damned are floating, grotesque, skeletal creatures that attach themselves to the reanimated Doctor Strange like a cloak.
  • A man is violently killed by Wanda. He is lifted into the air and torn into strips, similar to paper through a paper shredder. He can be heard screaming in agony. No blood is shown. There is a slight cartoonesqe aspect to the death, but it is still a very violent and disturbing death.
  • During her attack on Kamar-Taj, Scarlet Witch uses her magic to torture several of the wizards to get Wong to reveal the secrets of the Dark Hold. She can be seen lifting up several of the wizards from the ruins with her magic, and they can then be seen writhing and screaming in agony. Wong eventually complies, and she lets them go. Somewhat brief and not very graphic, but still potentially disturbing.
  • A super powered character's own power is turned against him. This causes his head to implode. His skull blows out into mush and blood comes from his mouth. This is mostly contained by his mask so it's not as graphic as it sounds, but it's still pretty disturbing.
  • When wanda killed the illuminati professor x apperead to try to stop wanda with his ability when he's inside wanda mind he found the real wanda trapped on rocks then a red smoke comes towards professor x when the red smoke arrives the scarlet witch came of it and kills professor x twisting his head we don't see blood but it's really shocking.
  • Wanda forces a shield through Peggy Carter, cutting her in half. When Peggy falls she can be seen sliced in half, but her death is not that visible as it is blurred out.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The Zombie version of Doctor Strange have bones sticking out, and half of the face is injured in gory detail.
  • Wanda's looks in the multiverse may be frightening for some people.
  • In a scene, possessed Wanda appears suddenly behind Professor X and twists his head breaking his neck and killing him.
  • Mr. Fantastic is ripped into shreds while screaming in pain. his head also explodes like a balloon with some blood, although it's not too gory.
  • At the very end of the movie, Doctor Strange is walking down the street. He starts screaming in agony and collapses suddenly, and a third eye opens on his forehead, a result of him using the Dark Hold. May be shocking/disturbing to some viewers.
  • Zombie Strange's scene includes a close-up of just his eyes, followed by his hand suddenly sticking out.
  • Wanda kills the Illuminati may be disturbing for some
