Kicking-off the MCU’s Phase 5
Article by Brandon the Hero Guy
But was it good though?
Ant-Man and Wasp Quantumania is the 31st movie in the MCU, and the main kick off for Phase 5. It’s written by Jeff Loveless and Directed by Peyton Reed. The film stars Paul Rudd, Johnathan Majors, Kathryn Newton, Evangeline Lily, Bill Murray, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Michael Douglas.
This movie takes place after the events of Endgame. It shows Scott (Paul Rudd) being praised as a hero by the citizens of San Francisco, because of his role in The Avengers after he assisted in stopping Thanos’ attack. He’s practically a celebrity.
Scott is reconnecting with his family notably his daughter Cassie Lang (Kathryn Newton), who’s going on a rebellious streak. Scott tries to restore the father daughter bond back to what it was.
Everything changes suddenly and drastically when Cassie creates a device that takes them all into The Quantum Realm where they discover a hidden universe. This secret realm hides a terrifying secret that threatens not only The Quantum Realm, but the Multiverse itself.
The movies pacing was slow. We mostly get to see Scott during the aftermath of Endgame and it gives off a comedic tone, which The Ant-Man movies are known. One of the things I liked about this movie was the Quantum Realm and how it has a hidden universe/society. Though, I wish the movie explained how its inhabitants were able to survive in The Quantum Realm and more about its origins. Can’t help but wonder how it’ll play a role in the Multiverse Saga.
And the characters! 1st Kang the Conqueror was on point and extremely intimidating and with different attributes from his comic counterpart. Johnathan Majors did an excellent job as the character, he really showed how much of a Threat Kang is and how he’ll effect Phase 5 in future installments.
I liked his interactions with Janet Pym (Michelle Pfeiffer) which was really interesting to see. Also Paul Rudd, once again, was on point as Scott Lang. However, the character Cassie was definitely one of the flaws in this one.
She was definitely more defiant in the beginning, and tried to emasculate Scott which was completely out of character for her. The disrespect towards Hank Pym was unnecessary. They definitely downgraded him into comedy relief in this film. His character was on point in the 1st movie with similarities to his comic counterpart, but here it was just entirely different character.
As for M.O.D.O.K, what they did to him was just horrid, and honestly some comic character adaptations are better left on the page and M.O.D.O.K is a prime example. Some of the action sequences were good but the VFX definitely needed more work, which shows that Disney/ Marvel Studios need to slow down on pushing these projects out. Though the action sequences with Kang were well done at times. Ant-Man and Wasp Quantum is a good, but rocky start of Phase 5. The two end credit sequences were surprisingly good. Especially the first one, which has me looking forward to what they’ll do for future movies. They just have to take these characters and their stories more seriously, and not make them into constant jokes. So, without further ado I give Ant-Man and Wasp Quantumania 6/10.
