Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

this is the best MCU movie of all

This movie is VERY good. It has an ok plot, it is diverse, and the end fight scene is really exiting and has really good special effects. The one problem is that 2 or 3 of the scenes are very intense in action, and a lot of the characters have guns. And one character gets really hurt. There is almost no swearing. Over all this is what i think of as the best marvel movie there is.
