    Got our IMAX tickets for the second weekend.

    Looking forward to it. Ant-Man is a lot of fun.

    In perhaps the most bizarre but also the most wonderful character comparisons, screenplay writer Jeff Loveness has this to say about MODOK, per SFX Magazine (via GamesRadar):

    I’ll just say he was inspired by Kevin Kline in A Fish Called Wanda and Frank Grimes in an old Simpsons episode — This really put-upon, selfish, entitled but then also deeply sad, insecure man who knows that he got a s*** deal in life and is trying to make the best of it. [...] His ego will crumble the second he’s challenged but then also like Kevin Kline in A Fish Called Wanda, he’s pretty good at killing people! He’s a real loose cannon character and I had a great amount of fun with him. That was almost day one in the room — we cracked MODOK as a character and the movie just became so fun.
    Since I love both of those characters, I'm very curious to see this version of MODOK.

    Also, this sounds like MODOK isn't Darren Cross, or at least "our" Darren Cross. Assuming MODOK is actually being played by Corey Stoll, which I haven't seen officially confirmed anywhere (ComicBook.com doesn't count because it's pure supposition on their part).

    "It's like camping."

    "We've never been camping!"

    "But we've always talked about it."

    I'm curious about the context of that exchange, whether it's about the Quantum Realm or something more specific. :lol:
