Today I was super excited to have the chance to see a sneak peek of Avengers: Endgame. The movie is released on Friday, April 26th (but most theaters will have screenings on Thursday night) and you’re going to want to see it this weekend so you don’t get spoiled. Avengers: Endgame was pretty much a film of perfection, the perfect ending to 10 years of amazing Marvel movies.

I feel like I don’t have much to tell you about Avengers: Endgame because I don’t want to spoil ANYTHING. But here are some things to know about Avengers: Endgame – including if kids should see it.
- Avengers: Endgame has a running time of 3 hours and 1 minute. Add in previews and you’re probably going to be sitting in that theater for close to 3.5 hours. Before I went to the screening, I limited my fluids for the day because there was NO way I was going to be getting up to go to the bathroom. The movie is packed full of scenes that you don’t want to miss that I’m not sure of a great time to leave at all. If you plan on bringing the kids, think about if they will be able to sit through a 3 hour+ movie!
- Come prepared to cry, laugh and cheer. The Marvel movies are always FUN but it helps when you see it in a theater with a fun audience. The movie was packed with jokes – I laughed out loud many times. There was an amazing moment halfway through the movie where the whole audience cheered and clapped. I also cried – several times and I wasn’t alone. There were grown men sobbing at the movie! If you have a sensitive child who doesn’t want to see their heroes hurt – or even die – think about seeing the movie beforehand to prep them. My 10 year old was extremely upset at the events of Avengers: Infinity War so he had me spoil Endgame today. He wanted to mentally prepare himself for any of the sad scenes that happen in Endgame.
- There’s some bad language. Yes, there’s always been some “language” in Marvel movies (Cue the Captain America reference!) but I was surprised at the amount of language. It was so noticeable that I leaned over and whispered to my husband how surprised I was. You’ll hear sh!t several times, d!ckhead, a$$ and b!tch. Just a heads up if you’ll be bringing younger kids with you.
- The violence that is in Avengers: Endgame is similar to what we saw in Avengers: Infinity War. You’ll see fights with scary creatures and fights using guns, swords, hammers and shields. There is a gruesome scene with Hawkeye that I’ll probably cover my 11 year old’s eyes when we watch it since I know it’s coming now.
Should I take my kids?
If your kids have seen the other Marvel movies including Infinity War, I would say take them because they are going to be begging you anyway. Avengers: Endgame is rated PG-13 for language and violence. I would say the movie is definitely for kids 12 and up but I’ll be taking my 11 year old to see it – after I prepped him, of course!
If you’re a fan of fun movies and you’ve seen a few of the Marvel movies, you’re going to really like Avengers: Endgame. If you’ve seen every Marvel movie several times and geek out over them, you’re going to LOVE Avengers: Endgame. This movie is a satisfying end to 10 years of Marvel movies and as my husband called it – perfection. Out of 14,000,605 possible versions of Avengers: endgame, this was it. This was how it was supposed to end.
