Doctor Strange Director Has Some Fun With The Inevitable PG-13 Rating


Deadpool may have proven that there’s still plenty of life left in the R-rated superhero movie, but that doesn’t mean you can expect to see blood ‘n guts or hear any F-bombs in a Marvel Studios flick any time soon. With that in mind, Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson took to Twitter to tease/joke about his film’s inevitable PG-13 rating.

Just in case you can’t make the Tweet out, it reads:

“Rated PG-13 for kaleidoscopic galactic intensity and other dimensional psychotropic violence.”

Now, while the movie may well contain those elements, this seems like Derrickson is just having a bit of fun and guessing about some of the things that the MPAA will take issue with. We obviously won’t know for certain if the association even mentions any of those things until they release their official rating, but it’s probably safe to assume there won’t be any Astral Plane-orgies involved in the film.

Doctor Strange stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams, Mads Mikkelsen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Benedict Wong, and is set to hit theaters on November 4th.
