Hey look, an upcoming marvel movie that may help wash away the bad taste left by their last film, “Thor: Love & Thunder”! As someone who genuinely likes the comic book characters, Thor’s latest wasn’t a happy experience. And the steady stream of mediocre television hasn’t exactly helped the MCU’s current state. And then along comes the trailer for “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” and suddenly I’m feeling a slight reason for optimism.
Both of the previous Ant-Man movies have been flawed but fine when it comes to entertainment. This third feature looks as if it has a lot more significance than what we have seen before. Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lily, Michael Douglas, and Michelle Pfeiffer all return, while MCU newcomer Kathryn Newton takes over as Cassie Lang (still not sure why, but ok). But the big attraction from the trailer is Jonathan Majors reprising his role of Kang the Conqueror. There are several other teases to be found if you look close. But most importantly, it looks like we’re finally getting a movie that (hopefully) will bring some of these MCU properties together.
“Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” hits theaters February 21st. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
