I cannot wait for future Marvel movies knowing that now there is a movie Marvel Universe it is simply awesome. Now if only Marvel Studios can get back the movie rights to FF, X-Men, Daredevil and Spidey then we can have the ultimate Marvel movie!! I have already seen this movie 5 times and will be heading back there this weekend with my nephews to treat them to pure movie magic. Epic classic movie.

I am a mom to two little boys who would LOVE to see these movies. I wonder if it is at all possible for the studios to have two versions of these movies - done by editing out the parts that give the films a PG-13 rating in order to put an additional version in the theaters that is PG. I do not know if that would cost more than it is worth, or if it would mess with the storyline too much, but I know of many parents who would take their kids to the PG versions and gladly return again, by themselves, for the PG-13 version.
