    1. Both those movies you mentioned made a profit domestically and worldwide. There is a difference between a critically panned movie and a movie that bombed. Marvel movies will always do well financially at this point. It’s more about the brand now than the quality.

        1. People can be as mixed as they want, I think the point Martial H is making is that “bomb” is not an appropriate word for a movie that makes money. That term specifically refers to a movie that under-preforms at the box office.

          1. Ok, but people were saying that Ant-Man was going to be the movie, that was going to make us, think Marvel is in trouble.

  1. This is very good news for Marvel since this one was a really hard sell for general audiences. A high not to end Phase 2 on.

  2. Austin/Chubblicious

    I am cautiously optimistic about this movie, I will be seeing it tonight. Sadly one of the commercials for Ant-man spoils the cameo in the movie, but I cant imagine that will spoil the fun while watching the scene.

  3. I don’t know much about Scott Lang, but Paul Rudd felt just like Scott to me, so I don’t understand Chris’s criticism with Rudd. I thought this film was thoroughly entertaining and a very pleasant experience. I had a lot of fun with this and the credits scenes were also a nice period on this film.

    Addendum: Beau is also the only Hank Pym fan that I know, so that’s an interesting change of pace.

  4. As someone who has never been a huge Marvel person (though I have seen nearly all the movies), I must say that their universe is wearing thin. I’m sure it’d be different if comic books were my thing, but at this point I’m suffering from Marvel blockbuster burnout. However, I do plan on seeing this one in the theater. The review sold me, and I’m a sucker for quality popcorn flicks. Plus the concept of an Ant-Man movie is a difficult sell, which doesn’t make it a layup. That sparks my interest.
