The first and only Vice Presidential Debate occurred on Wednesday night, and viewers across the country tuned in to see Vice President Mike Pence and California Sen. Kamala Harris discuss various topics. There was no shortage of noteworthy things that happened at the debate -- but one of the most casual moments quickly took the Internet by storm. Midway through the debate, a fly landed on the Vice President's head and proceeded to stay there for several minutes. The surreal situation - and the fact that Pence seemingly didn't notice the fly's appearance - instantly captivated and confused social media. Jokes about the fly are continuing to pop up, and it looks like some Marvel fans have taken a unique approach to the moment.
In the time since the debate came to a conclusion, a slew of tweets have popped up comparing the fly to Antony, the flying ant used by Scott Lang/Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Many wondered if Rudd himself had shrunken down to participate in the debate, or if the moment would help inspire Ant-Man 3's roster of characters. Here are just a few tweets about it.
