I grew up being the only girl in the neighborhood who read “boy” comics. Love the Dark Knight, Superman was too much of a boy scout, the X-men were my fav and I wrote my senior year term paper on Wolverine.
I now have two small boys (7 and almost 4) who love all of the comic book heroes and the live action movies that go with. As excited as we were to hear about the new Batman movie, after seeing the trailers, my husband and I thought that this movie may be too true to the Dark Knight series for our boys. It is breaking the seven year old’s heart to be told he can’t go see it.
I know it’s PG-13, we make movie decisions based on individual movies (I have actually had issue with a G rated movie before). I think it may be too much for them on the big screen, but do you, who have seen it, think that the “dark” aspect could be tamed down being shown on the TV in the comfort of their own home?
It would be great if I could tell him that he has to wait until it comes out on DVD.
