Many Superhero Movies Not For Kid
Movies based on some of the most popular comic book heroes are not for kids…a fact which should be of concern to parents.

Kids love superheroes.

Indeed, for the first quarter-century of their existence, superhero comics (and their attendant movie serials and radio programs) were aimed exclusively at children. With the rise of Marvel Comics in the early 1960s, comics attracted a slightly older audience; but it took until the 1970s for older teens and college students to embrace superheroes in a major way. And its only been since about the year 2000 that comic-book superheroes have become truly dominant in the film and pop-culture worlds at large, rather than a niche interest for comics fans.

But even amid the current vogue for superhero movies attractive to adults, kids still love supheroes. They are bright and colorful, they can do amazing things, and they go on lots of exciting adventures. Kids are naturally going to be attracted to them.

But increasingly, the companies that produce and profit off of these characters are pitching their products to a more adult audience, and including darker themes with more violence and explicit language.
