Huge plot hole that I just noticed


There is a Mexican astronaut in this movie. How on earth did he pass the NASA exam? He didn’t even seem intelligent in the movie either, did he con his way on board that ship?

Well, from all the bs in your post, I do agree he looks dumb, he was cast in antman as comic relief because of that

Martinez was Mexican American. He put forth the exterior of a clown. In the movie he's portrayed as an Air Force Officer and an extremely skilled pilot. So I would guess he's actually quite intelligent.
