‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ still has sting

Phase 4 of the Marvel Universe begins with the latest entry, “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.” This one features support actor Jonathan Majors as Kang The Conqueror, who is also at the top of the box office with his role in the third entry in the “Creed” saga with “Creed III.”
Personally, I think the Marvel brand is safe for the time being. The Marvel gravy train will undoubtedly have hits with James Gunn’s third entry of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” which will feature Dave Bautista’s final Drax appearance.
The predicament with “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” is the sci-fi mumbo jumbo running rampant throughout.
The color palette in this Marvel entry contains a myriad of rainbow colors that are splashed on the big screen throughout.
The actors appear to be having fun throughout, especially Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang, the title character. He takes everything with a grain of salt and appears so casual. He has really great chemistry with Kathryn Newton, who portrays his screen daughter Cassie.
Evangeline Lilly is back as Hope Van Dyne, aka The Wasp. She’s a joy to watch here, as she was in some of the “Hobbit” entries.
Peyton Reed has been in the director’s chair throughout the three “Ant” entries.
The “Ant” hill is in good hands with Reed, especially when these adventures are viewed on the big screen.
The latest “Ant” fantasy-yarn is establishing a benchmark, and is, in fact, a placeholder for much more to come for Marvel’s Kang Dynasty.
I liked “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” because it made me laugh. I recommend seeing this one in the theater for the ultimate experience.
