You can bet Spider-Man will at least cameo in the next film, even if they use an actor who isn't Holland.

I thought the post credit scene at the prison when I saw that Arial shot, was going to be the one vulture and scorpion are being held in. Thought that would have been cool.

Sad day for all of geek fandom! RIP Stan Lee. A true pioneer of his time. He will be greatly missed.

Glad I saw Stan talk at a panel in a small ballroom back in '16. I knew I'd never get to see him again. The next year (2017), he left Friday night and the Saturday panel was cancelled. This is a real bummer.

Good teaser. More focus on Cap this time, and we'll see Hawkeye in full killer mode. But then they had to nix the serious tone with Lang at the very end. Still don't like Rudd as Lang, sorry.

Exactly my thoughts. Rudd is a throwaway and is there to make it look like Ant Man and the Wasp was important when everybody and their mother know it wasn't. Kiss-ass fan service. Glad Cap is featured. Was disappointed he wasn't used much in IW.

We're missing an entire Captain America film where he goes around doing shit as Nomad. That's why his suit was different in IW. We got so much of Stark and Parker (who they said at first would only have as much screen time as he did in Civil War).

I hope the focus on Cap is extensive. It's going to be Evans' swan song and he's the best thing about the MCU, IMO.

I think ant man I going to learn how to travel through the time portal worm hole by going subatomic to bring back all the characters. I'd say that's pretty Important.

Ant Man IS important because of his links to the Quantum Realm and time travel.

If you look at Infinity War, there were MULTIPLE times where they could have killed and stopped Thanos but he used the Infinity Stones to stop it. Loki tried to kill him. Gamora killed his illusion. They almost had the gauntlet off, but Star-lord ruined it. Thor didn't go for his head.

In the movie Thor said Thanos was too powerful with even ONE Infinity stone. So, IMO, they are going to use the Quantum realm to stop Thanos from getting the infinity stone on Xandar, which means Loki kills him, which means Gamora kills him, which means Thor kills him. In fact Thanos says Gamora almost killed him...which may be a part of all this.

So, IMO, they need to use the Quantum Realm to gather all of the different infinity stones, before Thanos gets even ONE. THEN they can have a fight where Thanos will lose. And, Thanos is going to try to stop them at every turn because he has the time stone.

I also think the battle on Xandar is going to be where a lot of the action takes place because Infinity War did not even go there...they skipped right over it to Thor and Loki.

And, BTW, I thought the first trailer was "meh".

In the interest of socks, and towels that are walking around by their own volition...these movies need to end.

Can you say over saturation? Just like the socks, and towels.

And, yes, please wash your socks.

The movie was near perfection. Only 1 thing I would change in the story that's going to affect a major character arc in the future films, and 1 stupid SJW moment I would eliminate. Very moving film. There were some very well done funny quips. Saw it with my son Thurs night, and the whole family Friday morning. Everyone loved it.
