The growing Ant-Man franchise might not be the biggest money-maker for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but I still love it like all the rest! In fact, I kind of love it a little more, because Ant-Man is my favorite superhero in the MCU. And I’m so glad that his movies are so much fun!
Movie Rating: 8/10 – Very Good.
I’m a little disappointed that we’ve got to wait all the way until March for Captain Marvel. That’s a long wait! Of course, I say that knowing that years fly by like the snap of a finger in adulthood, and it will be March before we know it, and we’ll be complaining that, “Jeez, it’s already March”, and another entire year will have passed to bring me and all of us closer to the grave…
But hey! Ant-Man and the Wasp! Join me after the jump for my full review. And expect FULL SPOILERS for the movie!
Ant-Man and the Wasp comes out this week, a movie celebrating two shrinking superheroes! Being the search engine conscientious blogger that I am, I’ve decided to tap into that zeitgeist and make a List of Six about shrinking superheroes!
But not just any shrinking superheroes! This is a list about weird and obscure ones, because who needs yet another list on the Internet about superheroes we’ve already heard about? Ant-Man and the Wasp, and their various spin-offs, aren’t included on this list. I’m also leaving out the Atom at DC Comics, the other most famous shrinking superhero. If you have enough interest in comics to read my blog, I’m confident you already know all about those shrinkers.
Join me after the jump for six more shrinking superheroes that you may have never heard of before!
Part of me was curious why we didn’t get a new Ant-Man and the Wasp trailer to go before Avengers: Infinity War. Then I remembered that Marvel doesn’t want to take attention away from their current awesome movie release by focusing too much on their next awesome movie release.
So I think this fun and hilarious trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp trailer is a nice palate cleanser from the ending of Infinity War this past weekend.
Looks awesome! Ant-Man is my favorite hero in the MCU and I’m excited that he’s getting a full-on sequel, perhaps even a trilogy if this one does well. I think this movie could be a really fun thrill ride of superheroics and special effects. And giving the Wasp a big role will be great. Michael Peña is also hilarious in this trailer.
The villain, The Ghost, looks damn cool, too. And I’m glad to see Scott’s daughter coming back big time. She was a great part of the first film.
I think this is going to be set before Infinity War. And maybe the post-credits stinger will be Captain America showing up to recruit Scott and Hope for Infinity War 2.
Here’s to getting the Ant-Man gang back together on July 6!
Ant-Man is one of my favorite Marvel superhero movies, and is probably my favorite character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I like his ‘Average Joe’ style, and Paul Rudd is charmingly ordinary as he dives into the crazy world of superheroes.
So I’m thrilled that there’s a sequel in Ant-Man and the Wasp!
Looks great! Lots of action, some humor, and a really cool focus on Evangeline Lily’s Wasp! I liked the little bit about Scott not asking her to help out in Captain America: Civil War.
And the brief glimpse we get of the Ghost is pretty cool. I’m really looking forward to another solid and enjoyable Marvel superhero movie!
In honor of Jack Kirby’s 100th birthday, actor Evangeline Lilly shared the first picture of her in costume as the Wasp for the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp sequel! She looks pretty great!
I like the costume, though I think it could use a bit more color. Ant-Man is probably my favorite movie superhero costume, and its red coloring really helps it to stand out. Wasp is just black with some tiny bits of color and piping. The costume could use a touch more pizzazz, you know what I’m saying?
Still, looks great! Can’t wait for Ant-Man and the Wasp!
