We went to see Man of Steel tonight and I just wanted to warn you ladies that this movie is not appropriate for children. There were several small children there (in the area of 5 years old) that I worry are going to have nightmares.
*SPOILER WRITTEN IN WHITE DO NOT HIGHLIGHT IF YOU DON'T WANT A SPOILER* there is a scene where Superman is sinking into a sea of skulls. There was a kid screaming to leave but they didn't.
Even if your younger kid enjoyed The Avengers, Man of Steel is not the same type of movie it is much darker. It is more in the vein of the Dark Knight Trilogy in tone. Just wanted to give people a heads up.
