We had Tomb Raider and Kill Bill, which were the ones that worked, but then we had BloodRayne and Ultraviolet and Æon Flux.

“It’s not. The truth is the phases mean a lot to me and some people but…Civil War is the start of Phase Three. It just is. And Ant-Man is a different kind of culmination of Phase Two because it very much is in the MCU.

You meet new characters and you learn about Hank Pym and his lineage with the MCU over the years. But at the same time, it also picks up the thread of Age of Ultron in terms of heroes—major heroes, Avengers—coming from unexpected places. And in that way, it connects a lot.

Also, Hank Pym’s attitude towards Avengers, towards S.H.I.E.L.D., and kind of the cinematic universe in general, is much more informed after the events of Age of Ultron, and in a certain way, before the events of Civil War.” This was the statement of Kevin Feigs when he was asked that the placement between Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War might feel like an afterthought.

Rafer Guzman from Newsday said, “the anti-Batman, all zip, and zingers. He’s also, suddenly, rather family-friendly. Some of the movie’s best moments are shared by Stark and latchkey kid Harley (Ty Simpkins), who mock their budding father-son relationship while acting it out.”

Kenneth Turan from The Los Angeles Times said, “changing this billion-dollar-plus franchise’s tone for the better while keeping the same actor as Tony Stark. There is quite a bit of Black’s trademark attitude and humor here as well, things like a throwaway reference to the sci-fi classic Westworld and a goofy character who has Tony Stark’s likeness tattooed on his forearm. Black and company throw all kinds of stuff at the audience, and though it doesn’t all work, a lot of it does and the attempt to be different and create unguessable twists is always appreciated.”

Film Postproduction
