ANT-MAN AND THE WASP is a required break from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) Avengers series specially after that stressful ending of Infinity Wars.
What’s great about this film is that it got its own brand of humor and a touch of family drama too. So glad that they’ve given Cassie (Abby Ryder Fortson) the daughter of Scott Lang AKA Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) more playroom in this sequel. Her character adds more “character” on the rugged role of Rudd.
Another thing that’s great about this film is that we have two Ant-Man and Wasp to look at. You’ll see the original Ant-Man and Wasp in action – Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) as well as the new Wasp, Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) in more action scenes. I think the trailer already gave that a way.
The meat of the story is that, after Civil War, Lang agreed to be on house arrest serving his sentence faithfully so that one day he could be free to be with her daughter Cassie. Hank and Hope on the other hand was working on a way to reunite the family and look for Janet in the quantum realm.
We’ll also be seeing again some of the characters from the first film that added more color and laughter to the story like Luis (Michael Pena), Kurt (David Dastmalchian), Dave (T.I.), Jim (Bobby Canavale), Maggie (Judy Greer) and coming in fresh in Ant-Man and the Wasp is Jimmy Woo played by Randall park.
We’ll also get a glimpse of three new marvel characters that will provide some complications on the already complicated situation that will bring Hank, Hope and Scott together again.
The mysterious Ghost played by Hannah John-Kamen, Dr. Bill Foster the original Giant Man or “The Black Goliath” played by Laurence Fishburne and weapons dealer Sonny Burch played by Walton Goggins.
I like this better than the first one. Stay for the end credits to know where Ant-Man is when Thanos wiped out half the universe.
Get ready for lots of laughs, action, phasing, and a trip to the quantum realm as Ant-Man and the Wasp goes live on the BIG screen starting Wednesday (July 4) in cinemas all over the Philippines. Best viewed on IMAX!
