Ant-Man Contains the First Spider-Man Reference in the MCU, Plus TWO Post-Credits Scenes

Oh, the tangled web Marvel weaves. (Sorry. I'll stop.)


Your friendly, neighborhood Spider-Man isn’t expected to appear on-screen in the MCU until Captain America: Civil War, but now that Marvel and Sony have their deal all worked out, Ant-Man is already laying the groundwork for that and more!

But that’s all in the future, and the more pressing question is, “Does Ant-Man stand on its own (six, tiny) legs?” Full reviews are still likely under embargo, as the movie won’t hit screens until July 17, but early reactions seeping out onto Twitter have been positive, says Collider. Until reviews are allowed out into the wild, the new Japanese trailer gives a decent look at how the plot unfolds:
