Wesley Snipes Believes MCU’s Blade Reboot Can Work Perfectly With PG-13 Rating

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has always stuck with the standard PG-13 rating for its movies. This is quite understandable for commercial reasons. However, other superhero-themed productions like The Boys have embraced violence and strong language.

In this context, it is pertinent to note the Blade trilogy movies. These films had a lot of violence and strong language and were thus R-rated. Wesley Snipes starred in these films as the iconic character, Eric Brooks. Nevertheless, Snipes himself believes that such films do not need to be R-rated to do full justice to the characters. We take a closer look at what the star had to say about the ratings debate in this article.

In a recent interview with Comicbook.com, Wesley Snipes gave his take on the ratings debate. The star said: “I think those kinds of stories lend themselves to a wide range of dialogue and situations. Both adult and young adult,”. “I don’t know, it seems like the R-rating and PG-13 base is sliding now because it seems that now the 13-year-olds can speak better words than the adults can.”

Moreover, Snipes believes that if the story remains authentic and true to the subject matter, it is fine to be PG-13. “As long as it’s true and organic to the subject matter, the plot, and the world that’s created,” he adds. “If there’s consistency, I think it’s fine [to be PG-13].”
