I'm quite excited to see Ant Man, I'm interested to see how they do with a hero with no previous movies, and (that I know of) doesn't tie in to The Avengers. That, and obviously Star Wars 7. I watched them as a kid with my father, and hope to watch them with my kids.

I could be wrong, but I'm sure I heard somewhere that Ant Man will tie in with the rest of the universe in some way. Like I said though I might be wrong. I'm also looking forward to that I think it's very underrated due to it following AoU, but I think it'll be better. AoU was definitely not one of my top Marvel movies.

    AoU was definitely not one of my top Marvel movies.

Age of Ultron could have definitely been tighter. I only saw it once, but I remember leaving the theater feeling that with a few changes here and there, the whole story could have been more compelling. In all honesty, it's my least favorite Marvel movie so far.

I have decent hopes for Ant Man, only because I enjoy stand alone stories more. Though I'm sad to hear that Edgar Wright left the project because Marvel was being too controlling, which incidentally ties in to why I tend to support creator controlled comics over Marvel's and DC's offerings.

Yeah I was upset about that as well. My friend said they had to come up with an entire new script for Ant Man after Wright left, so even if this is a great movie, he's gonna leave knowing he's' missing out on a potentially better story. But who knows really. We get what we get.
