The next movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe involves the smallest Superheroes ever, but their movie is actually turning out to be one the biggest things in Hollywood. Just recently, the world premiere of Ant-Man and the Wasp took place, and it seems to be getting approval from everyone who got to see the film. Yet another success story for Marvel is being written and they maintain their streak for time 20th time. No other franchise has either been this long or actually had a 100% success rate!
This movie will largely focus on the story of Ant-Man and the Wasp helping out Hank Pym in order to rescue Jane Van Dyne from the Quantum Realm, who has been stuck there for almost 2 decades. Since Ant-Man is the only one who has visited the QR and successfully returned, Pym and Hope will recruit him again to have his insight on the matter. While the three try to save Janet, they will face another threat standing in their way in the name of Ghost played by Hannah John Kamen. Along with her, we are going to see Walton Goggins as the supporting villain, Sonny Burch. We will also be seeing Bill Foster aka Goliath and the return of Luis and his team.
The movie is said to be very self-contained and it is already being called the best sequel since Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It is really smart on the villains, and it does solve the big question of Infinity War, which was “Where were Ant-Man and the Wasp?” and “What were they up to?” Since this movie successfully puts out another villain, this becomes the 6th quality villain on the trot. The first reactions of the movie were hailing the movie, and now let’s see what kind of reviews the movie is getting from various critics an websites.
Here’s what The Hollywood Reporter‘s Todd McCarthy wrote:
“The result is an effects-laden goofball comedy in which anything goes and nothing matters. Not that this is an entirely plot-free extravaganza or just an excuse for comic riffs. But the filmmakers are so cavalier about the idea that any of this is supposed to make any sense that there’s a certain liberation in not burdening two human-brained insects with the fate of the entire universe. If the filmmakers don’t pretend to take the proceedings too seriously, you don’t have to either.”
Newsday‘s Rafer Guzmán:
“‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ doesn’t really try, which — disappointing as that sounds — might be the best option. This is a stopgap movie, a midseason episode, devoted to introducing new characters and establishing dynamics. There isn’t much of a villain to give our heroes a purpose; they spend most of their time chasing keys that fit in locks that open doors that lead to the next chase. Is “Ant-Man and the Wasp” generally entertaining, with a few good chuckles and some cool ideas? Yes. Could you skip it and just wait for the next “Avengers” film? Also yes.”
IGN‘s Laura Prudom:
“Although it ventures further away from Marvel’s traditional villain formula than any film before it, after the universal threat posed by Thanos in Infinity War it’s actually a relief that Ant-Man and The Wasp keeps its stakes personal, rather than galactic. Even so, it still makes sure to never undermine the gravity of what its heroes are fighting for.”
