The third film in Peyton Reed’s “Ant-Man” franchise has sustained some of the most hostile reviews yet in Marvel’s post-“Iron Man” age, which is weird because it is, in fact, a joy. According to Variety, the target of Marvel’s ire is the r/MarvelStudiosSpoilers subreddit, where the 63 pages of “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” was allegedly posted on January 20, 2023. A spokesperson for Reddit stated the company “is committed to protecting our users’ privacy. We have rigorous processes in place to assess legal requests and object when appropriate.”

Marvel has also subpoenaed Google, which hosted the transcript for a time via Google Docs.

Given that this is a dialogue transcript, this sounds like a leak from a closed-captioning facility, which should be very easy to ferret out. As someone who’s been on the other side of this equation, I can assure you this isn’t a game worth playing. The house always wins, and you have nothing to gain in the first place. Enjoy movies. Don’t be a dick. And observe the gospel of Aaron Altman: “Keep it to yourself.”
