My Favorite Scene: Ant-Man (2015) “Ant-Man vs. Falcon”

Now that we’re 12 films into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we’ve got such a large character base that literally anyone can pop up in anyone’s film.  The film universe has that connected feeling that Marvel Comics do.  The latest entry, Ant-Man, got a surprise cameo from Anthony Mackie (who just owns Falcon) when Scott had to break into the Avengers’ new digs.  Not only is it a great fight, but it’s pretty hysterical and will have repercussions for Captain America: Civil War.  This film was so much fun.Paul Rudd, Scott Lang, Ant-Man

    1. Well, nothing will affect Cap 3 or Dr. Strange. They’re too far along. Normally, I would think this kind of shake-up represents some organizational chaos, but first of all it was news to me that Kevin Feige reported to anyone at Marvel and at this point, why in the world should he? He’s been the architect of the MCU and this reorg puts him in a position now similar to that of Kathleen Kennedy on the Star Wars side. The creative council being disbanded sounds bad until you hear it was what drove Edgar Wright away from Ant-Man and drove Joss Whedon insane and caused delays and cost overruns on Avengers: Age of Ultron, which Disney is somehow counting a failure at $1.4 billion. Tomorrowland was a failure and I will be pissed it cost us Tron 3 forever. I think, on paper, this is a good thing, especially when I read the guy at Marvel he was reporting to was a 72 year old man who didn’t want to make Black Widow toys because “girls don’t read comics”.
