CB: Despite numerous fun connections and references to the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe, Ant-Man still stands on its own two exoskeleton feet as one of Marvel's most unique films to date.
Ant-Man is likely to be the most fun movie of the summer. In a genre which is becoming quite saturated, Ant-Man sets itself apart from any super hero film before it. While it packs the same comedy and wit audiences love from Marvel Studios films, it creates a plot different from any other with elements unseen from any of its predecessors. That includes Iron Man, Thor, and even DC's The Dark Knight trilogy.
