Does Endgame finally give us the much needed satisfaction we deserve? Or has it fallen under the weight of its own hype?

Ant-Man crawled onto the scene in 2015, 10 years after it was first announced. Having lost fan-favorite director Edgar Wright, the movie was a mystery to movie-goers. Would it have the same charm they'd imagined for 10 years? Had Marvel finally brought about their first flop? Would it even work at all? Find out as we shrink down into the Quantum Realm and discuss Ant-Man!

Having two lukewarm films the previous year, how could a new Captain America movie right the ship? Does the character hold any weight in the modern setting or does he fall flat as a flag-waving boy scout? And, above all, does his costume look better than it did in The Avengers? Jump to the modern day with us as we discuss all this and more in Captain America: The Winter Soldier!
