I'll confess to two things:

1. I have not seen the first Ant-Man.


2. I'm getting a little tired of the Marvel Superheroes franchise.

To defend the first is to address the second. There have been so many superhero movies coming out, all from the same universe, and I'm tired. I love the characters (a die-hard Hawkeye fan right here); however, the storylines--to me--are no longer interesting. That is the reason that I did not want to see the first Ant-Man. It seemed needless and annoying and frankly, like a waste of time that I could be spending watching other movies that don't suffer from franchise fatigue.

However, it is was Student Thursday at my nearby Marcus and some of my friends wanted to go see Ant-Man and the Wasp, and I was like, "Sure, why not?"

I'm so glad I did.

This movie is hilarious, but refrains from the raunchy humor that characterizes other superheroes stories (ahem--Deadpool). While a little raunchy humor can be appreciated, the humor in Ant-Man and the Wasp was varied and well-timed, echoing the style of the first Avengers movie. Watch for Stan Lee's typical cameo, a humorous comeback from his GotG2 flop (his scene, not the movie).

It has a well thought-out storyline that made sense even without seeing the previous movie and the supporting characters carry their subplots well. Hope Van Dyne outshines Ant-Man with her crazy combat moves and touching plot. There is some needless romance thrown in, but I presume that is a carryover from the first film and is better explained then. It was nice for the events of other (recently released) movies in the franchise to be mentioned but the other superheroes and their issues didn't interfere with the focus of the plot.

Seeing this movie, I will probably go back and watch the first, but it has high expectations to live up to. Heeding that, Marvel also has a lot of work to do to get back in my good graces, but this is a step. A warning, though, to those that go to watch it in theatres: stay through ALL of the credits, and I do mean ALL of them. You won't regret it.

While Ant-Man and the Wasp lacks a compelling villain, it still manages to capture the charm and humor from the first.

I find "Ant-Man" and the Wasp to be a little better than the first. Although I didn't excepted much from this movie, I find it as more fun. After "Avengers: Infinity War" welcome all the fun we get in the Marvel Universe. Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) is under house arrest, which explain why he wan't in the recent Avengers movie. The film follows he and the Wasp as they battle a compelling villain called Ghost played by Hannah John-Kaman who play her role very well. Michael Douglas plays Hawk Pym whom his wife the original Wasp disappeared many years ago. My original idea is that she went to the same world that the Incrediable Hulk visited way back to The Incredible Hulk #140, but I was wrong. Anyway, I had fun with the movie and I suggest you stay for the final credit. there is a connection to the story line the recent Avengers movie. You miss the final credits, you have yourselves to blame. I can't stress that enough.

I was a bit uneasy going into this movie, thinking that it was just going to be your typical Marvel spin-off. In this story, there is no obvious antagonist to bring the superhero down. This movie, while a good superhero movie, also teaches about the love that unites a family, no matter what. It didn't play hugely on a romance, but instead made the characters as real and relatable as possible. This is a good movie for Marvel fans and people who want a taste of the superhero movies.
