First Reactions for Ant-Man and The Wasp, Yes it Has 2 [SPOILERS]

First Reactions for ‘Ant-Man and The Wasp’, Yes it Has 2 [SPOILERS]

Posted by June 23, 2018 Comment

Ant-Man and The Wasp is the 19th Marvel Cinematic Universe release from Marvel Studios, and it’s got some pretty important distinctions.  It’s the first of the MCU films released to have the female hero share the title, and one of the few MCU releases to have almost the same full returning cast and director.

Okay, so that last one isn’t as important, but it’s pretty cool that both the stars Paul RuddEvangeline LillyMichael Douglas, and Michael Pena are all returning along with director Peyton Reed.

If you’ll recall, Reed took over on the first Ant-Man film after Edgar Wright parted ways with Marvel Studios and Disney, citing “creative differences” as the main reason.  He and Joe Cornish ultimately retained writing credit on the film, but it’s unclear how much of the final film came from their script.

Ant-Man and The Wasp just screened on Friday June 22nd to press in Los Angeles and other major cities, so of course the reactions are in on twitter, and with them a reveal of the end credits.  Specifically- how many post credit scenes there are.

Collider Editor-in-Chief Steven Weintraub posted his first reactions to the film, and it set a nice tone for the rest of the press comments we’ve seen thus far:

Brandon Davis of ComicBook.com had the most telling posts however:

He even goes so far as to call it “Marvel’s best sequel since Winter Soldier”:

And, the thing we were most interested in (without spoilers):

Needless to say, we’re pretty excited to see what happens when Ant-Man and The Wasp flies into theaters on July 6th 2018.
