The First Reactions To Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania Are Very Mixed

A rotten grade has been assigned to the latest Marvel Studios film, Ant-Man and the Wasp in Quantumania.

As of Wednesday afternoon, out of 148 reviews, Ant-Man and the Wasp in Quantumania had received a rating of rotten from 53% of the users. Only “Eternals,” which was released in 2021 and received a 47% rating, was the only other MCU film to fall short of the 60% “fresh” criteria.

Prior Ant-Man films directed by Peyton Reed provided the MCU with a microcosmic perspective on the superhero genre. The comedic relief provided by the low-stakes adventures was much appreciated in light of the seriousness of the franchise’s larger challenges.

Disney’s Marvel machine called, and Ant-Man and the Wasp had to go. Kang, portrayed by Lovecraft Country’s Jonathan Majors, will take over as the MCU’s principal antagonist in Phase 4 and will likely remain a threat throughout Phases 5 and 6 of the Multiverse Saga.

If sources are to be believed, the Disney+ series “Loki” served as his introduction. Reviewer Lindsey Bahr for the Associated Press said, “Majors is undoubtedly scary and intriguing, but Kang seems like a mismatched antagonist for a single Ant-Man feature, and the result is a ‘Quantumania’ that is trying to be too many things.

The film’s critics applauded Majors’ portrayal, saying he brought the same gravitas and menace to the character as Josh Brolin’s Thanos. Critics claim that the story’s unique and delightful narrative, typical of Ant-side Man’s quests, was overwhelmed by Kang’s larger-than-life presence.

As per the sources, there is nothing uplifting about the movie itself. Puchko compared the dark, jumbled, and nonsensical action sequences to those in the final season of HBO’s Game of Thrones.
