It’s time for another Marvel film to take over the big screen this summer. Thanks to Maximum Comics I was able to see Ant-Man before most at their special screening that took place at Town Square, Thursday, July 16th at six pm. Though I have to admit by saying I wasn’t making major plans to see Ant-Man immediately upon its release date, how can you turn down the offer to a special screening where the nerd community gets together for a movie night like one big family?
Among the crowd many wore red and yellow buttons adorned with sketch heads of Ant-Man or Yellowjacket compliments of Ninjabot. These accessory pieces were handed out upon entering the theater. Across the lobby it was easy to identify who was apart of our own colony. My evening was already promising to be one I wouldn’t regret.
After grabbing our soda (candy already long-since devoured) I sat with my friends surprised by the little display of prizes at the foot of the theater. The audience became an uproar of excitement for Maximum Comics’ ticket raffle. Winners were awarded with Ant-man themed goodies and praise.
Without giving any spoilers away I can safely say that Ant-Man is one of the funniest and strangest Marvel movies I have ever seen. The movie hit the ground running since the opening scene. We are met with familiar faces – one a personal favorite – as well as references that had the audience’s reactions me with cheers and laughter.
By the end of the night I can definitely say that this was an experience that was anything but small. As always Marvel has met up to yet another fantastic action-packed movie. Whether a person is familiar with the superhero verse or not, Marvel rolls out enough for anyone to enjoy beloved stories and characters as many have over the decades.
So. Should you see it? Definitely. Just note to stick around for two surprise scenes between the credits!
