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.

Decent movie

Decent movie with great graphics. The plot is a little confusing at times and I don’t think younger kids would be able to easily follow along. I think the scene at 1:02:00 is very unnecessary. Why put a physically explicit scene in a superhero movie?? The violence was probably the most graphic out of all of the Marvel movies, so be aware. There are also many swear words. I think 13+ or a mature 12 year old is ok. I recommend just skipping over the explicit scene entirely.
