  • Stan Lee’s Ant Man and the Wasp cameo is a bit sad says ScreenRant

The dialogue is evidently meant to imply that Lee’s latest character believes himself to be suffering the residual effects of youthful drug abuse, but that’s not what’s likely to trouble some fans. Rather, it’s the more specific association of Lee himself with memory and/or reality-perception problems, as the beloved comics creator has recently featured in the news in a series of tragic and increasingly desperate-sounding reports of deteriorating mental health and elder abuse allegations.

  • 20 things about Ant Man the Wasp’s relationship only true fans know, according to ScreenRant

‘Originally introduced in 1963, the duo were conceived through the pages of Tales to Astonish, eventually serving as the original team that made up the Avengers.

Flash forward over 50 years into the future and the pair has been through thrilling highs and remarkable lows, leading to the first MCU co-featured superhero title.

The Ant-Man sequel follows the relationship of Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne, but original characters Hank Pym and Janet van Dyne also receive significant screen time.

The couple has the craziest history compared to anyone else who adopted the mantle of the character, and one of the most tumultuous relationships in comic book history.

Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp has subtly explained how Daredevil Season 3 could connect to the wider MCU. There have only ever been the loosest ties between the popular Marvel Netflix shows and the movies. At the moment, the increasing gulf between the Marvel TV and movie divisions is generating real frustration among viewers, who had previously bought into the idea of “It’s all connected”.

It’s important to realize, though, that the Marvel Netflix shows are currently running several years behind the movies. In fact, Jessica Jones Season 2 was the first Marvel Netflix series to be set after the events of Captain America: Civil War, with liberal mentions of the Raft, the prison for “enhanced” individuals. That’s why viewers tuning in to Luke Cage Season 2 expecting to see the impact of Avengers: Infinity War’s ending were always destined for disappointment; Luke Cage was set in late 2016 or (at the latest) early 2017, meaning there were never going to be any tie-ins to Infinity War.

Thirty-five films throughout cinema’s history have grossed more than a billion dollars, including two Marvel movies this year. But none has ever been a live-action comedy.
