It's fine, it's fun...Peña makes it worth it!

Saw this film in all of its IMAX 3D glory. It was a fun ride. Centering women as smarter, faster, and having unique access to different parallel universes was encouraging and a useful way to employ the two Wasps and Ghost. Fortunately the men get out of the way, except for Michael Peña's character which there should definitely be more of. Next time a bit more Luis please. The mid credits last scene is the most heart wrenching that MCU has come up with. Ant-Man lost in the quantum realm feels like it also offers the "solution" for the next Avengers film. Luis is gonna save the proverbial day!
