It's hard to pretend it's truly all-inclusive entertainment when it's a bunch of straight white dudes hanging out and saving the day.
"lol all the CGI alien bad guys look the same lol." Sigh.
Shoehorning minorities into a film which doesn't call for any wouldn't improve things one bit, and the fact is two roles were shoehorned into the movies to expressly replace white characters (Fury, Heimdall) with black actors. Let's make them female just to get that diversity train going, eh?
