Age Rating of Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania: Parents Guide (7 Big Things)
Can your kids watch this one? What is the age rating of Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania?
This parent’s guide will help you decide if your family can handle the seven big issues with movies and shows: mature topics, gore, violence, language, sex, romance, and nudity. We’ll also give the age rating and age-appropriate recommendations.
There’s a little bit of language to be aware of in Quantumania.
It’s not too bad, however, in frequency or word choice. Minus one section where Scott repeatedly says “h@ll.”
Your kids will hear:
- h@ll (repeated as “what in the h@ll?” over and over)
- g-d d@mn
- d!ck (repeated a few times as in “don’t be a d!ck”)
Age Rating of Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania: Is It Safe For Teens When It Comes To Sex, Romance, and Nudity?
There is no sex or nudity in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
There is a reference/innuendo to someone having a “wild” past life but it would likely go over most kids’ heads as it isn’t explicit. Another character talks about “having needs” and some past indiscretions.
Characters kiss and hug in romantic ways.
Violence and Gore: Is Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania Too Scary For Kids Under 13?
You have the typical Marvel fight scene fare here.
Scratch that: it’s more like Star Wars meets Avatar meets Marvel when it comes to violence. Little to no blood is shown, but there’s plenty of action.
A lot of fighting with guns, spears, knives, futuristic weapons, blasters that send people flying or knock them down, but little to no gore.
Some characters are shown with bloody faces, but that’s about the extent of blood in the movie.
Background characters are seen lying and assumed dead during fights.
Some are saying the fight scenes were intense, but we didn’t feel it was on par with the likes of Black Panther or Avengers: Infinity War, or Endgame.
More than the other Ant-Man movies? Yes.
Though we still think a man breaking into a 6-year-old’s room in the middle of the night is more intense than any of the fight scenes we saw in Quantumania!
Is Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania Ok For Kids: Mature Topics
Almost the entire movie takes place in the Quantum Realm, which may be hard for younger kids to grasp or understand.
The older they are, the less time you will likely have to spend explaining what’s going on.
Some characters drink at a bar and one mentions getting drunk.
Age Rating of Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania: What Ages Can Really Watch This One?
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania is rated PG-13 for violence, action, and language.
Parents Guide: Is Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania Appropriate For Kids Under 13?
We felt this is one of the cleaner Marvel movies when it comes to language, sex, and maybe even violence. While there are a lot of fight scenes, nothing felt too intense until the final battle.
If you’re looking for the Ant-Man humor, well, it’s there… but it’s incredibly dry and a little sparse. This is more serious than the previous movies.
But it’s also pretty weird and wild, so younger kids may have a harder time following the full plotline.
It does, however, set up what we’re going to see in Marvel’s Phase 5 which is called the Multiverse Saga. There’s a lot of Multiverse discussion in this one.
On content alone, we think kids as young as 7 could handle Quantumania, especially if they’ve seen any of the big 3 action/fantasy franchises: Marvel, Star Wars, or Avatar.
But factoring in the very big “weird” aspect and possibly losing their interest along the way, we’d suggest waiting until 10 or older for this one.
Or screen it first so you’re prepared for questions- or wait until it shows on Disney+ so you can pause when needed to talk!
