Marvel Movies Are More Realistic Than You Think

A lot of crazy stuff happens in those mega-popular Marvel movies. Like, the kind of stuff that just defies the laws of physics as we know them. But some of those seemingly impossible antics are actually scientifically possible, or at least plausible.

If you're interested in separating science fact from science fiction in the MCU, Jim Kakalios is the guy to ask. Kakalio is a University of Minnesota physics professor and the author of 'The Physics of Superheroes.' As it happens, INSIDER recently picked his brain to find out how scientifically accurate ten iconic scenes from Marvel movies really are. Turns out, more than half of those scenes stand up to scientific scrutiny.

So, if you've ever wanted to know if Peter Parker could actually stop a subway car with his signature webbing, or there's really anything behind Ant-Man's shrinking powers, you can check out the video below.

You might just be surprised by how many times Marvel gets the science (at least mostly) right.
