Ant-Man | A Marvel Cinematic Universe Rewatch

The Marvel Cinematic Universe rewatch is here! Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Kevin Mahadeo (@KevMahadeo) have launched “Everything is Super,” a new superhero and comic book focused podcast on Post Show Recaps, beginning with a full deep dive into the MCU.

For the next several weeks, Josh and Kevin will focus on a different film from the MCU, in release order. Up next: Ant-Man, the final movie in the MCU’s second phase, and a production as beleaguered as any in the series. Do the woes behind the scenes greatly impact the viewing experience? Josh and Kevin have very different takes on that matter, and a whole lot more.

Coming next: Captain America: Civil War. Send your feedback for the recap by no later than July 13 by e-mailing [email protected]postshowrecaps.com.
