Spiderman, The D-Word, and Parenting. Do Better, Sony and Marvel.

Yeah I’ve got a complaint as a dad. The new Spiderman: Far From Home trailer is out. I have a ten year old. I would note that the Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse movie was able to make it the whole way through without profanity, locker room talk, etc.

But in the launch trailer for this new movie, we get to hear a character call Peter Parker a “dickwad,” unless we watch the international trailer, in which he is called a “loser.” It is notable that Sony thought dickwad was fine for American audiences and not for any other audience. It may just be that it wouldn’t translate well to international audiences. But I don’t think it is fine.

I have a ten year old who loves Spiderman. Spiderman has traditionally been many kids favorite superhero. But I don’t ever want to hear him using that language and don’t think it needs to be in the trailer he’ll want to see. I realize kids get assaulted from all sides with all sorts of language these days and I kinda do expect it in movies.

But in the family friendly trailer? I think Sony and Marvel should have kept the international trailer for everyone.
