You're in luck, you'll be able to see more of Black Panther, at the very least in the live action films. He is played by Chadwick Boseman in the shortly upcoming Captain America: Civil War and is supposed be have his own movie to come out in 2018.

My Thoughts:

While I am familiar with the character... I never seen much on Ant-Man before seeing this movie. I never read much comics and the shows I watched as a kid from the '60s - '80s never showed much of him. But I must say... I enjoyed the film very much. I liked all the cast and the character they played. It is a good origin story that is both informative and entertaining. It has plenty of action as well as a few laughs here and there. Definitely recommended.

While I haven't seen Ant-Man, I have seen Deadpool. Most other superhero films are falling into the trap to try to be bigger and louder, but then forget to back it up with story. That is why I started to get superhero fatigue last year (Avengers: Age of Ultron) and have no interest in seeing Batman v Superman now (all review I trust say it's mediocre, at best...). However, Ant-Man and Deadpool seem to tell much smaller stories without the need to outdo what came before and as such can concentrate on telling their story much more, resulting in a more focused movie.

I will try to catch Ant-Man sometime soon...
