Movie Review: Ant-Man and the Wasp Quantumania
The third film of ‘Ant-Man series’ ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ has been released. With this, the fifth phase of Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has started. The craze of MCU films, which have become very popular among youngsters in India, can be gauged from the fact that more than one lakh advance tickets have been sold for the first weekend of this film. While the advance tickets for the first weekend of Karthik Aryan’s ‘Shehzada’, which was released on Friday itself, have been sold only about 25 thousand. After ‘Avengers: Endgame’, Ant-Man is not only very senior among the remaining Avengers, but this time he is going to face a super villain. In the previous two films, Ant-Man was not confronted with any such special villain.

Review of ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp Quantumania’
Like the rest of the MCU films, the story of Ant-Man and The Wasp Quantumania is also fun. The film develops the story before interval, post interval it becomes very interesting. Especially the unique world of Quantum Realm thrills you. The climax of the film is quite intense. Especially the clash between the new super villain Kang and the Ant-Man family of MCU is vigorous. The director of the film Peyton Reed has once again done a great job. This film of about two hours keeps you hooked while introducing you to the quantum realm.
Paul Rudd is in fine form as ever. While Evangeline Lilly is also solid in the role of Wasp. Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer have also played their roles beautifully. In this film, Kathryn Newton plays the role of Ant-Man’s daughter and she is a surprise package. The life of the film is Jonathan Majors in the role of Super Villain Kang. He has completely succeeded in creating panic in the audience. The film also has some surprises in store for Avengers fans.
