The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is primarily made up of content rated PG-13 and TV-14. The MCU generally targets a pretty wide audience including children, teens, families, and adults.
Since it is less likely that the same young viewers watching, for example, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. would watch a TV-MA show, I'm just curious as to how Marvel came to the decision.
To clarify, I'm not saying they can't cater to different demographics. It makes sense that Marvel, wanting to make as much money as possible, would make TV shows for all sorts of audiences:
- cartoon shows for younger viewers
- TV-14 shows for teens and families
- TV-MA shows for mature audiences
So, purely out of curiosity, has Marvel shared their reasoning for having TV-MA content in the MCU?
Note: this is not opinion-based since I am asking for any reasons Marvel has offered to back up their decision.
