Perhaps worse, though, is that so … [Read more...] about We debate the pros and cons of Destiny 2’s current season pass
Rogers has long been acquainted with Stark and Bruce Banner, but Ant-Man didn't come into the picture until Civil War. They even made a joke scene about Ant-Man being awkward when the two of them met for the first time. So what's he doing here, and why is Stark wearing a jacket with the SHIELD logo on it?
