I try to avoid watching too many (if any) trailers for movies because I like to be surprised and not look for certain things in the movie or have them spoiled because I saw something in a trailer. So I didn’t really know what to expect going in. The movie itself was done fantastically. The story was fun, there was a lot of humor which you have come to expect from Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and the other cast. But what starts out as a fun bright movie, quickly gets pulled down into a dark dimension of the Quantum Realm.
From the minute they get down there (which isn’t very long into the movie) it is almost non-stop fighting and war. Kang is introduced and I feel like the second half of the movie really belongs to him. It is his introduction in to the MCU and Kang (played by Jonathan Majors) does a phenomenal job.
I felt like I was bouncing between Dr. Strange and Star Wars, and then Ant-Man, and then back to one of the others. It was an interesting mix. Paul Rudd shines as Ant-Man. I simply love him in this role and it was nice to see him “mature” in this film (for lack of a better word) towards his relationships in his life.
Overall I did like the movie, it is just not what I expected. It was a little more violence and language than I had expected for Ant-man, but I did like the story and I hope the direction it has set Phase 5 on is good as well.
There are a few movies you will want to watch ahead of time to make sure you understand what is going on and being talked about in the movie:
- (2023) “What If” series (alternate reality in the MCU)
- (2023) “Secret Invasion” series (based on a Skrull invasion)
- (2023) Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 movie
- (2023) Loki season 2 series
- (2023) Echo series (a spin-off of Hawkeye)
- (2023) The Marvels movie
- (2023) Ironheart (based on Riri from Black Panther)
- (2023) Agatha: Coven of Chaos series (a spin-off of WandaVision)
- (2024) Daredevil: Born Again series
- (2024) Captain America: New World Order movie
- (2024) Thunderbolts movie
- (2024) Blade movie
I hope you enjoy Qunatumania. It is packed with humor and action. I love that we get to see more of Hope (Evangeline Lilly), Cassie (Kathryn Newton), and Janet (Michelle Pfeiffer) in this movie and get to know more about Janet’s time in the Quantum realm. There is also a lot (more than usual) of language and violence in this one and I don’t recommend it for younger viewers. See our Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania Parents Guide below for the breakdown.

About Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania:
Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania” finds Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne continuing to explore life as a couple who also happen to be Super Heroes. Life is good: Scott has penned a book, Hope is championing humanitarian causes, and their family—Hope’s parents, Janet Van Dyne and Hank Pym, and Scott’s daughter, Cassie—is finally part of their day-to-day lives. Cassie, it turns out, shares her new family’s passion for science and technology—specifically with regard to the Quantum Realm. But her curiosity leads to an unexpected, one-way trip for them all to the vast subatomic world, where they encounter strange new creatures, a stricken society, and a master of time whose menacing undertaking has only just begun. With Scott and Cassie pulled in one direction and Hope, Janet, and Hank in another, they are lost in a world at war with no idea how or if they’ll ever find their way home again.
Kicking off Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the fast-paced, big-screen adventure features all of the heart and humor fans of the MCU expect. “The ‘Ant-Man’ movies have always been about family,” says director Peyton Reed. “In ‘Quantumania,’ we’re deepening and complicating the family dynamic while painting on a much larger canvas. We dipped our toe in the Quantum Realm in the first couple of movies, and this time, we wanted to give the movie an entirely different look: It’s an epic experience.”
The stakes are high, adds Reed—“Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania” sets the stage for several films to follow. “That, to me, was extremely exciting,” he says. 2 “Creating the Quantum Realm—it’s the ultimate act of world creation. The idea is that they go farther down into the Quantum Realm than we’ve seen in the previous movies. We not only had to create the look of these cities and civilizations, but we also had to create the internal logic and history, and then populate it with all these creatures, beings, and structures.
