This week on Marvel Mondays, we were thrilled to revisit “Ant-Man” (2015), a movie that’s pure joy and the best kind of silly. It’s also one of Nicolas’ favorites in the MCU, and a breath of fresh air after the heaviness of last week’s movie, “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” Christy and Nic talk about the casting of Paul Rudd, the playful Michael Pena flashbacks and the clever use of the ant armies’ many skills. We also touch on an idea that several movies in the franchise explore: the role of technology and innovation, and whether to use them for good or evil. Also, you will hear us argue about what exactly is happening in the credits scene where Captain America and Falcon have the Winter Soldier’s arm in a vice — we just rewatched “Captain America: Civil War” for next week’s episode, so we now realize that’s what it’s from. It’s a blur! Anyway, thanks for joining us this week for our Breakfast All Day miniseries. We love doing it and we’re glad you’re here.
