A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
Fledgling superheroes work best when they work together; there's no incentive to teamwork quite as powerful as the threat of death and planetary destruction. Bravery and determination keep our heroes moving forward despite overwhelming odds. While there is only one female superhero, she is equally as powerful as the boys.
Violence & Scariness
As befits a story based on Marvel Comics' Avengers, the cartoon violence is nonstop and includes stomping, shooting, punching, and use of laser eyes and magic Asgardian swords.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie centers on the offspring of the original Marvel Avengers and their efforts to battle the villain who killed their parents and threatens the life of their guardian. As such there are themes of parental death and -- not surprisingly -- avenging their murders. The young superheroes battle a seemingly unstoppable Ultron, though the continuous sci-fi violence depicted is very much in keeping with comic book style.

Is It Any Good?
For fans of the comic book genre, Next Avengers is a rollicking, fast-paced tale that will entertain adults and kids hardy enough for the nonstop cartoon violence. The individual young Avengers have distinct personalities and hybrid skills handed down from their super-parents, so those familiar with the older generation of Marvel heroes should appreciate the continuity. As seriously as these young teens take themselves, they have grown up as a family and no one is above good-natured ribbing, lending a welcome comic breather to some of the more intense scenes.
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.
