Avengers: Age Of Ultron Contains A Bit Of Bad Language


For the most part, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has kept it pretty clean when it comes to objectionable content. The Avengers had plenty of violence, to be sure, but it was mostly bloodless with the exception of Phil Coulson’s death (and he got better). The language was pretty mild as well, and there’s basically no sexual content. Will Avengers: Age of Ultron follow in its footsteps?

Not entirely, according to the rating board in the UK, which is called the British Board of Film Classification, or BBFC. That organization recently gave the film — known as Marvel Avengers: The Age of Ultron to avoid confusion with the British 60s spy show also called The Avengers — a 12A, which is for all intents and purposes the same thing as a PG-13 in the US.

You can hit the BBFC website to find the exact reasons Age of Ultron was found to be “unlikely to be suitable for children under the age of 12,” though you risk spoilers by doing so thanks to the board’s detailed explanation of its decision. One of the causes cited was a joke with some light sexual innuendo, though you might recall something similar between Tony Stark and Loki during The Avengers.

More interestingly, it seems Earth’s Mightiest Heroes might be displaying some potty mouths a little more often during the sequel. No f-bombs or anything of that nature, but the BBFC amusingly states that the words ‘bastard’, ‘shit’, ‘dick’, ‘son of a bitch’ and ‘piss’ all make it into the theatrical cut. We’ll assume it’s not Ultron responsible for the bad language, but you never know.

Those words aren’t likely to offend the vast majority of the audience members for Age of Ultron, but they’re words worth keeping in mind if you’re trying to decide on whether or not to bring kids to see the movie when it opens on May 1.
