New this week Suggested correction: Not to be confrontational, but has this actually been confirmed? As in, did any of the filmmakers say that they were inspired by "Star Trek: Voyager"? The fact that the word "Endgame" appears in both titles doesn't mean that one was inspired by the other.

New this month Trivia: Prior to the film's release, there was a tongue-in-cheek fan theory that speculated the Avengers would defeat Thanos by having Ant-Man shrink down, crawl into Thanos' anus, and then expand. This theory became so widespread that the Russo brothers and even Neil deGrasse Tyson commented on it and why it wouldn't work.

Trivia: One of the time-travel movies referenced by Ant-Man is "Hot Tub Time Machine", which featured Sebastian Stan, who plays Bucky in the MCU. In fact several of the films or franchises mentioned during the scene feature MCU stars. "Star Trek" had Chris Hemsworth in a small role in the 2009 film (If Inhumans still counts as MCU, then Anson Mount has been on Star Trek Discovery). Scott mentions 'Die Hard, ' which had Samuel L. Jackson in the third film. And Bill and Ted star Keanu Reeves is reportedly being tapped for a role in future MCU film 'The Eternals.' Interestingly, they don't mention Doctor Who, which has featured myriad MCU actors over the years, including Karen Gillan (Nebula), Christopher Eccleston (Malaketh the Dark Elf), and David Tenant (The Purple Man).

Trivia: The scene with Steve on the elevator with the agents of Shield (Hydra) is a callback to The Winter Soldier, with the obvious flip that this time he deceives them and avoids a fight.

Continuity mistake: In the final battle, Wasp and Ant-Man are in the van trying to get the quantum tunnel operational. We cut back to the fight and we can see Ant-Man there too, fighting in his giant form.

Suggested correction: He needed to hot-wire the van. It's quite possible he could have left the van for parts (he's seen slamming a Leviathan to the ground) or to protect it. It also could have been an illusion by one of Dr. Strange's people.

Sorry but the suggested correction makes no sense. For one Dr Strange's people have no idea what Ant-Man looks like, and secondly Ant-Man would have no idea where to get parts from in the middle of a battlefield, let alone know if alien technology would be compatible. Also the time frame given when the scene plays out allows no time for him to leave the van, this is a legitimate mistake.

Dr. Strange's people don't know what Ant-Man looks like? He entered the battle with them long before they went to the van. Earth has had access to the same Leviathan parts since the original Avengers. If Toomes can make wings out of it in Spider-man Homecoming, it's possible he can figure something out. Clint had passed the glove to Black Panther before Ant-Man is seen in the background. There was plenty of time. He also could have been defending the van while they brought the glove.

New this month There is plenty of time for Ant-Man to have left the van and returned to it. As the scenes play out, Ant-Man and Wasp are in the front of the van trying to hot wire it. The film then cuts to the battle for several minutes, as we see the passing off the gauntlet, which includes the brief shot of Giant-Man in the background. A few minutes later the film cuts back to the van and we see Scott opening the rear door of the van. So there's plenty of time for him to have gotten out of the van, saw potential trouble with the Leviathan, turned into Giant-Man to stop it while letting Hope finish activating the tunnel, and then returning to check the final settings. Now, all this raises another question that has to do with the apparent ease Giant-Man has in traversing the battlefield, as in why not just give Scott the gauntlet, have him turn into Giant-Man, take a few steps over to the van, and then shrink back down to take the stones back in time?
