Marvel films do really well, no matter how bad the movie is in Marvel Cinematic Universe it won’t be a washout as it enjoys a huge fanbase. Ant-Man 3 marks the beginning of Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 5. Phase 4 saw some mediocre films, so there are high hopes for Phase 5. The most important thing in Phase 5 is the introduction of mega villain Kang the conqueror and his story arc leading to the Avengers; Secret Wars. Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania had a decent pre-release buzz and it looked like it will be another success story for the studio.
The Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania is the third part of the Ant-Man Film. This new film has exciting things going as compared to its predecessors, but it barely remembers what made its hero so special in the first place. Quantumania follows Scott Lang AKA Ant- Man, now a successful author, living happily with his partner Hope AKA Wasp, Hope’s parents Hank and Janet , and Scott’s daughter Cassie.
Cassie is a tech smart girl, and with her device the whole family gets unintentionally transported to the quantum realm, a dangerous place where Janet Spent years and holds dark secrets about its power mad ruler Kang. As majority of the film takes place in the quantum realm, the movie is VFX- heavy. The tone of the film is similar to Disney’s Strange World, but this film lacks material that would keep us emotionally hooked to the story. The movie runtime is only two hours, which is not enough to understand all the characters and themes because the quantum realm is a lot to take in. It seems that Director Peyton Reed have put all the efforts into building the quantum realm instead of working around dramatic urgency and conflict.
