I'm looking forward to this.  The first one was really fun (with the exception of T.I.  He sucked). 

Michelle Pheiffer as Janet Van Dyne should be really interesting.  

Word has it that this movie ties to Dr. Strange (on a multi-dimensional level). "Onward....to the Microverse!

Edited to add a spoiler warning in the thread title~Matt

Marvel should have remained faithful to the comics by making the first movie with Hank Pym and doing everything in their power to ensure it flopped, then had Hank as co-founder with Jan in the first Avengers, then rebooted him as Giant Man in another flop, then give him mental illness in a subplot in Infinity War before relegating the character to cameos wearing a lab coat while his hero identities and MO get passed around like a bong. I'm not sure where slapping Jan would fit in -- perhaps on a Netflix show? Sounds like a case for Jessica Jones!

Those chairs are far too big for Ant-Man and the Wasp! :)

At this point, I just need to give Disney my account number. 

Please tell me Fishburne is playing Bill Foster in this.

Hope he isn't killed off like he was in Mark Millar's CIVIL WAR. (We're Marvel! We care about diversity! That's why we kill off our black male characters!)

After all the superhero films that have come out in the past few years, the first ANT-MAN is my son's all-time favorite Marvel movie.

The science and logic still make no consistent sense whatsoever, but we'll be there opening weekend.  Looks like a great, fun time!

I would be outraged if the science and logic made consistent sense. Bring the incoherence!

Yeah, a man can't really fly, either . It's the fantasy, with only doses of realism thrown in to make it seem like it could be "real", is what makes superhero stories fun.

Come on, Matt, you know you'd love to see an Ant Man movie where he can't move or breath when he's small or a Giant Man film where his bones snap when he puts weight on them. I mean, they'd be short films...

There's no square-cube law in superhero stories, OK? There just isn't. Or maybe there is but Really Brilliant Scientists found a way to get around said law.

Anyway this movie does look like fun.

Pym particles have tiny Heisenberg Compensators built into them. 

Which I think means you can use them to manufacture really high-grade meth...

Ant-Man - the character that used a rubber band to propel him across New York, who seemed to be the size of an ant yet looked much bigger when placed next to a hand.

And I loved every issue of him - he was one of my favourites.

So let's just ignore the handle in the building please and just sit, smile and be content that Pym shrunk the building and it has a handle in it to pull along like luggage. That is so Stan Lee!

Yes yes, I of course know there's plenty of suspension-of-disbelief to be had with any superhero film, but from the very first moment that Paul Rudd puts on the costume in ANT-MAN, he shrinks down into the bathtub and is apparently light enough to be swept right out of the tub by the running water... yet when he hits the bathroom floor, he lands with a huge crack in the tiles.  And the filmmakers don't make this discrepancy any more clear throughout the remainder of the movie!

That's more than just a, "Oh hey, just go with it" moment... that's a full-on plothole, as far as I can tell!

But... no real worries for me.  The original was still a lot of fun, and like I said, my son absolutely loves Ant-Man (above all others, for some reason!)... there's no way I'm not taking him to see this sequel!

Shaun, as a kid in particular,  I really liked Ant-Man.  Maybe it's a kid thing, but I remember especially liking a power where you could grow really small and hide and surprise people. So, I can kind of understand your son's fascination with the character.

(Oh yeah, I understand the fascination, Matt... I'm just amused--in a good way!--that with all of the spectacle of the other Marvel films, featuring such "big guns" as Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk, Captain America, Spidey, et al, it's been ANT-MAN that he chooses to watch about 3 or 4 times every year!)

Shaun, I took the inconsistencies in the bathroom scene to be less plot holes and more of an establishing statement about just how lax the ground rules were gonna be.

My main issue with the bathroom scene was why did his mate turn the shower on in the first place? Pym knew it was coming as he is describing what is going to happen.

The rest? Comic book physics.
