This week, Perry is joined by video editor and writer Eddie Thomson of Why We Watch [https://www.why-we-watch.com/] to discuss 2015's Ant-Man! We discuss the long road this movie took to getting made, from Edgar Wright's long involvement in the project, switching over to Adam McKay and eventually landing in the hands of Peyton Reed. We also talk about how the heist film aspect helps set this apart from the rest of the MCU and why not every movie needs to end in some world-ending threat.
