That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which checks out some facts a million years in the making with Jurassic World!
As Ant-Man opens in theaters, we’re once again reminded to keep our big superhero-loving butts in our seats throughout the duration of any comic-book movie’s closing credits. (For Ant-Man specifically, you’re going to want to stay all the way to the very end, for an extra post-credits scene.) It’s become a superhero movie staple to have a scene tacked on to the end of the film that either teases an upcoming sequel or spinoff, pays off an unresolved storyline, or just sprinkles on one last dash of humor. We’ve gone through all the superhero post-credits scenes that have ever made their way to the big screen to rank them.

This is just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which takes off with Toy Story!
Last month, Denny’s unveiled a special menu of six new items tied to Josh Trank’s upcoming reboot of Fantastic Four.

Did you know that Marvel has been working on an Ant-Man movie since the late-1980s? Stan Lee originally pitched the concept to New World Entertainment (then Marvel’s parent company), but they turned the idea down because Disney had just released Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. This is just one of the little facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which proves size matters with Ant-Man!
