    I wish I had the opportunity to get Spider-Man powers when I went to high school.

    I did but I ain't want no great responsibility. I can't even handle regular responsibility.

    I gained the proportions and build of Peter B Parker, just sans powers.

    I got my fat gut the hard way without powers !

    i think the unrealistic part of the far from home field trip is that peter can afford it

    there's a hundred handwavy answers for how he can, but that will deffo be tied into my dislike of mcu spider-man being very have your cake and eat it too

    Just watched Ant-Man and Wasp. The first act has some super sweaty plotting with some pretty clunky exposition.

    But even despite that once it gets in gear it is super god dang fun. We’ll see how the cards land but this is probably one of my favorite Marvel movies. Also Ghost has one of the best costumes in all of these.

    Also get Ant-Man’s Ultraman looking ass fighting a Fin Fang Foom or something

    I'm hoping Ant-Man 3 will go hard into the Microverse stuff and give us Ant-Man and Wasp fighting tiny weirdo alien monsters inside of a single atom in, like, Hank Pym's gall bladder or something

    I think the microverse stuff is neat but my favorite thing about the Ant-Man movies is how they use extremely normal settings as a weird playground. I'd rather see someone get dramatically run over by a toy train only to zoom out and show the actual scale of the fight. No other superhero movie can really do that, and a lot of them can have the heroes fighting CG monsters in an alien landscape

    Scott Lang honestly might be my favorite MCU character

    Only one that really comes close is Steve Rogers

    He is just such a fun dude to watch and has so much heart while also being an ex-con single dad who loves his daughter and is on good terms with his ex and her husband

    He rules and I love him

    Plus, y'know, Paul Rudd is the most charming man alive

    One of my favorite things on rewatch of Antman and the Wasp
    When they are bugging Scott when he's little in the van about a juice box and cookie. He looks so earnest when he asks if they actually have them

    Spider-Man trailer looks dope.

    Also, a public high school class trip to fucking Italy is the most unrealistic part of any of these movies.

    My sister and I went to the same high school in south florida. She went to Russia in like 89, and I went to Madrid, Paris, and London in 93. EF Tours, man. Take a foreign language, lol.

    Yeah, I went to a school that was nothing special but overseas tours were definitely a thing. I never went anywhere too far but many of my friends did. I think it's even more ubiquitous these days.

    I took 3 years of Latin in high school and got to go to Italy and Greece. My parents of course had to pay for it, but it was rad our Latin teacher did that. It was just a normal high school, and I don't think other language teachers did any trips? Our teacher was just really cool. Shout out to Miss Brantley!

    I think travel abroad opportunities is common enough in high school that it’s not far-fetched for Peter to have that opportunity in the movie, and that they would have assistanc eopportunities for the students who could not afford it.

    At the same time, as we talk about our own experiences, it was/is still very varied based on the schools you went to, the economic support those schools had, and the social class you fall into, that it should not be assumed that everyone had that option. My school didn’t have the support nor did my family make enough money for me to be able to do it ourselves or through some program.

    I don't think anybody is assuming that. Somebody said that overseas highschool trips was super unbelievable and people are just saying that it's a very common thing. I'm not sure why anybody would take umbrage from that.

    because the post you replied to suggested that people missed out on the opportunity simply because they didn't take the right subjects, with a "lol" on the end as though it was laughably easy if they'd just chosen better? Like if someone did "take a foreign language, lol" and still could not go on trips because their family couldn't afford it, that's going to feel kind of shitty. it's tone deaf at best, callous at worst.

    In other news, Ms. Marvel was really good this week, with a very cute story. While I’m very interested in what Saladin Ahmed does with her, I’m real bummed that we’re almost to the end of G. Willow Wilson’s tenure on the book.

    In my school at least, you didn't get to do the foreign trip associated with a language unless you made it to year four or five as well.

    My Latin teacher told me that my grades weren't good enough and I should drop after year three of it, so I never got a chance to do their Italy trip.

    Which obviously isn't a likely problem for Peter Parker, but the idea that these trips were just available if you took the right classes ignores that a lot of students weren't able to take those classes, either due to academic performance or other commitments.

    My school only had 2 big trips when I was there (I believe they have more now). One was a spring break trip to London that was open to any who could afford it. The second was a class on rain forest ecology that required attending an evening class one night per week for about 8 weeks and then going on the trip to Costa Rica over the summer, for an entire year's worth of science credit. There was some financial assistance available for the science trip. They also worked with anyone with a sports commitment that might interfere with the evening class to make things work out.

    So, there wasn't a lot being offered but theoretically any student could have attended a trip.

    It sounds like the second title will be a Ms. Marvel or Miles Morales issue as Saladin Ahmed is very heavily hinting at writing it and they are his only current ongoings with any company
