PiercingMetal Thoughts: Well friends, we made it. We are here at the finale of Marvel Cinematic Universes Phase Two film offerings and how great it is to find Ant-Man being tossed into the mix. There is such potential for this characters future use and while we are getting the second hero to don the costume I am okay with it and very excited to see this film. Now I do not think that I am getting to see it today on its opening as I have just returned from visiting family out of state and there is a few days of catching up to do for me. However, I should see it by Monday so if you do feel like comment I ask that you post no spoilers at all under this humble narrative. I really cannot wait to see this film though because the trailers look like so much fun and since the same happened with the blockbuster “Guardians Of The Galaxy” I am going to reserve any hesitation or negative viewpoints until after I digest the release. Considering I felt that “GOTG” was one of the best Marvel films of the whole bunch I think I will be fine with Ant-Man as well. So what about you readers? Are you excited for this one or are you waiting anxiously for next years “Captain America Civil War” and “Doctor Strange”? Don’t even get me started on those two pending productions but do let me know what you think in the comments. The link below takes you to the official Wiki for the film but be careful since this is the opening day, it WILL contain major plot spoilers and most likely any teaser scene if one or two are present here.
