Ant-Man and the Wasp is a far more comedic film than any other in the Marvel Comics Universe. While it’s tough to beat James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy, I can not wait to see Drak and Ant-Man get together. Talk about David and Goliath!

When the ideas presented in this latest film jives with what Guardians of the Galaxy unveiled about these stone’s origins, the truths revealed can be mind-boggling! When a singularity from a black holes are put into a containment system, a stone, just what kind of quantum states exist in there needs to be examined. Perhaps, when all these movies from the second phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are available to purchase, one enterprising fan will make an edit of the scenes specific to this story arc into a mini documentary about the upcoming Infinity War.
