Next week, the upcoming MCU film Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania finally releases in theaters and fans are looking forward to seeing how Phase Five will kick off and its highly-anticipated introduction of Kang the Conqueror, the big baddie of the Multiverse Saga.
Just like any film and TV show that gets released, fans are also wondering about the quality of the upcoming movie and whether it will be as great as the previous Ant-Man films or some of the top-tier MCU films or it will be a disappointment. Now that the franchise is entering a new phase, there are a lot of hopes that it will be the former.
Last night, the film had its world premiere event in Hollywood where critics and journalists were also invited to watch it in advance and were allowed to share their social media reactions right after the event. However, they are still under embargo to share their full review until closer to its release.
Based on the first reactions that we've seen around the web so far, it looks like the film is receiving a lot of solid responses from the critics with praises towards its visuals, world-building, humor, effective science-fiction tone, favorable comparisons to Star Wars, and the performance of Jonathan Majors as Kang the Conqueror.
Some are also praising it for being a strong start to Phase Five and warned fans that there are some surprises in store, especially in the two post-credits scenes. You can check some of the tweets here:
The early responses here sound very promising and it looks like we can look forward to another entertaining MCU film. While it's not getting overwhelming rave responses like some movies in the past, it looks like it was still able to deliver for the most part which is still exciting enough.
The film's synopsis reads: "Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne return to continue their adventures as Ant-Man and the Wasp. Together, with Hope's parents Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne, the family finds themselves exploring the Quantum Realm, interacting with strange new creatures and embarking on an adventure that will push them beyond the limits of what they thought was possible."
The cast includes Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Kathryn Newton, Jonathan Majors, Bill Murray, William Jackson Harper, Corey Stoll, and David Dastmalchian. Peyton Reed directed the film.
