Marvel officially closed off their Phase 2 this weekend past with the release of Ant-Man, a movie that may have had a troubled production but ended up being pretty great. It’s a substantial change of pace for Marvel, eschewing the crazy big cosmos-shaking ramifications that has underpinned all their recent fare for a story that’s much smaller in scope (and no, I’m just talking about Paul Rudd’s shrinking hero).

As I mentioned in my 4/5-star review though, while the action may be smaller, the fun factor is anything but. Director Peyton Reed and his cast – especially the scene-stealing Michael Pena – give us one of the most purely fun Marvel movies since Guardians of the Galaxy, and also adopt a similar offbeat to the space-based hit.

Well, at least that’s what I thought… Do you guys agree, or do you think that this insect should get squashed?
