6 Things I Want to See in Ant-Man 4
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is taking a big hit at the box office and in the fandom. Despite it being a very entertaining movie that many people enjoyed — myself included — it’s got one of the lowest Rotten Tomatoes scores of an MCU film, and it’s box office take isn’t going to reach Giant Man heights anytime soon. That’s a real shame. Does this mean we’ll never get an Ant-Man 4? Is this the end of Scott Lang’s adventures in the MCU? I sure hope not!
As great superhero movies have said, you either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become a villain. Had the MCU ended at Avengers: Endgame, it would be hailed as a masterpiece for all time. But movies are a business, and why quit when you’re ahead? I fully applaud Disney and Marvel was trying out new projects, new characters, new creators and the like. I’ve enjoyed Phase 4, including all the TV shows. Another great superhero movie also said, “They found you amusing for a while, the people of this city. But the one thing they love more than a hero is to see a hero fail, fall, die trying.” There are plenty of people ready to celebrate a failure in the MCU, and I’m not one of them. I look forward to future Ant-Man films, as long as Marvel and the actors are game.

Ant-Man Isn’t Doing Well at the Box Office, But He Still Looks Cool Animated
I enjoyed Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, but it’s getting picked apart at the box office and in critical reviews. Alas. I’m a huge Marvel fanboy, but I can definitely see the cracks in the film, though I still insist it’s an enjoyable and entertaining watch. People are just eager for Marvel Studios to fail. Live long enough to see yourself become the villain, eh?
Anyway, Ant-Man is the latest subject of Tell It Animated, and this video is another banger!
I love this dude’s videos! I hope he’s been very successful. Ant-Man is my favorite Avenger largely because of the cool look of his modern costumes. And Ant-Man’s costumes are some of my favorite in the MCU. So this was a super fun video!
And, as always, the next video he should make is Robin!
6 Thoughts on Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania
Ant-Man is my favorite Avenger. He’s probably not my favorite franchise in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but he’s my favorite Avengers hero, largely because Paul Rudd is simply awesome. So I’m totally on board for more Ant-Man movies. I like the first two, I like all the characters; let’s have a good time! And Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is a good time. It’s not a great movie, and I can see why it’s getting middling reviews, but I had a blast at the theater. I hope this isn’t the last movie in the Ant-Man and Wasp series.
Movie Rating: 8/10 – Very Good
Part of the problem, I think, is that movie critics are done with the MCU. I’ve read a couple of reviews, read a lot of the online discussion, and I think people are just not as excited anymore. I get it. I understand. I’m not one of them, of course. I’ll be a Marvel fanboy for life. I’m gladly watching everything Marvel puts out. But I think the public sentiment has shifted. Marvel and Disney weren’t about to stop after Avengers: Endgame. They can’t. They’re a business. So they expanded into TV shows, expanded into new characters and new franchises. And perhaps the quality has suffered due to the quantity. I can see it. And I’m confident Kevin Feige is smart enough to learn and pivot.
I enjoyed Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, some parts more than others .Join me after the jump for my thoughts/review of the film. Expect FULL SPOILERS for the whole movie.Read the rest of this entry
The New Ant-Man Trailer Goes Heavy on the Kang
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is only about a month away from arriving in theaters and I’m very excited! Ant-Man is my favorite Avenger and I’ve enjoyed his films. And the next one is gonna be big and bombastic! It’s also gonna introduce a proper Kang the Conqueror as the new big bad.
And the new trailer, debuting last night, really goes heavy on Kang action!
Fun trailer! Not as jovial as the first one, but it definitely shows off the action very well. We’ve got lots of Scott Langs, we’ve got some quality drama attached to his daughter, Cassie, and we’ve got a metric ton of danger associated with Kang the Conqueror! Sounds good to me. And yes, those are our first official looks at MODOK! How nifty!
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania comes to theaters on Feb. 17!
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania Looks Cool!
The Marvel movie machine continues to roll along, much to all our enjoyment. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is due out in a couple of weeks, so we’ve got the first trailer for the next movie after that, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. I love all of these things, and I love this trailer.
Looks great! We got Ant-Man, we got the Wasp, it definitely looks like Cassie Lang is going to suit up in this one. And Jonathan Majors as Kang is really cool. I look forward to him being a huge menace. If I’m being entirely honest, I’m not yet sold on the Quantum Realm being so identical to the worlds of the Guardians of the Galaxy, but we’ll see how that turn sout.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania arrives in theaters on Feb. 17, which is closer than you think.
