In just a smidge over a month, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be rocking its way into theaters and bringing back our favorite Guardians (plus adding a few new ones). And, as to be expected, it seems that Guardians 2 has officially received a PG-13 rating, just like the first movie.
Posting on Twitter, user Stitch Kingdom says “Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 Rated PG-13 for sequences of sci-fi action and violence, language, and brief suggestive content.” Stitch Kingdom is usually on top of things and so this declaration is most likely accurate, and it’s not difficult to imagine that it is given the Guardians and their typical shenanigans. You can check out the original tweet for yourself below.

10 Marvel Shows We’d Like to See Made
As the “golden age of television” continues, one genre that has been on the uptick has been superhero TV shows. The CW almost has every day on lock with many DC Comics-centric TV shows like Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, as well as shows like iZombie, and the upcoming Riverdale. Other networks such as AMC and Fox (among others) have Preacher and The Walking Dead, Gotham, and Lucifer, respectively.
Marvel has been diversifying their portfolio as well. When they first introduced Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., they only slightly-connected their television universe with their cinematic universe. While recent corporate changes in their business structure have distanced their properties from each other, they still maintain a continuity. Shows like Agent Carter as well as the many Netflix shows (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, the upcoming Iron Fist, The Punisher, and The Defenders) all have events connected to their big screen counterparts. Currently, Marvel has Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. and The Inhumans (coming next year) on ABC along with Damage Control (TBD) while Cloak and Dagger (airing on Freeform next year), and Runaways (developed for Hulu) are in development.
With such a large assortment of comic books and comic book characters, Marvel has barely scratched the surface. Here are a few comic book characters that could definitely use their own show…
