    Didn't he shrink an actual tabk before putting it on his key ring? Then he used the growth particles to make it normal size again.

    If it was a toy they wouldn't have been able to drive it.

    In the comics Pym had control over what he could shrink or grow through touch.

    They didn't show how he shrinked his car and tank in the movie but I imagine he probably used the discs or a version of the shrink ray that Cross had but could get to work properly.

    I never said it was a toy. I know it was a real tank shrunk down. I asked how exactly he made it grow again and whether he used those discs.

    Ah, then yeah I just assumed he used one of those discs to grow it to normal size again. I get why they didn't show it and just cut straight to it busting out of the building.

    Could Cross's version of the Pym Particles end up in an Agents of Shield storyline? Martin Donovan who played the character Mitchell Carson in Ant-Man will be playing the same character on Agents Of Shield in 2016. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0233027/?ref_=tt_cl_t15

    While plausible, do you have a better source than IMDB?

    No I don't have any other source than IMDB.

    IMDB really is worth absolutely nothing as a source. Anybody can edit it, and there's no real enforcement of citation.

    Finally watched this again on BD, it's one of the MCU movies where the humour really works on every level as the movie has a ton of heart and soul and the humour just adds to that. This isn't evident in all of the MCU movies but it certainly is in Ant Man. This is possibly my favourite MCU origin movie.

    And of all the solo movies I also think it has the best action, and there is not one moment of spotty CGI in the movie when there usually is with any blockbuster. Can't wait for the sequel.

    The CG in this really was exceptional.

    It was, there is not one spotty moment, and usually every blockbuster has one, even the other MCU movies have them. But in Ant Man it's all spot on.

    The CGI works extremely well in Ant-Man because they used them correctly and most of the miniature environments are real.

    Yep, they used CGI in the right way and went practical as much as possible. If into more movies would do this.

    And it's actually a pretty positive review of Ant-Man, despite the obligatory silliness involved in an Honest Trailer.

    That's why, in general, I prefer Honest Trailer's over CinemaSins. Even when they're nitpicky, it (usually) is still in a kind of silly way and it makes for a fun/funny video to watch even when you might not agree with some of the things they point out, and they'll openly admit when it's actually a good movie (this, The Winter Soldier).

    CinemaSins on the other hand....:whatever:

    lol, I'm kinda surprised they didn't take pot shots at Douglas looking like KFC's Colonel Sanders.

    CinemaSins is only nitpicking, and 7, 8, 9 minutes of it these days too - 18 minutes for Tomorrowland! I don't have time for that.

    I still enjoy HiSHE and Honest Trailers.
