SPOILER ALERT: MCU Thread (Quantum-Ant-Man-ia)

<< < (122/122)

Just got out of Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania

First thought when watching this.... What if Marvel made a Star Wars movie, but in the Marvel Quantumverse....
and that thought stuck with me the entire movie.

Movie is entertaining for sure, but kinda suffers from the same thing every Ant-Man movie does... and that is just  something that keeps you from being all the way engrossed in it.
I don't really know how to describe it, but I feel like you know exactly what I'm talking about.

As for MODOK.... LOL
what can I say. You've seen the leaked photos. It's just as bad as you know it to be, but in live action.
It what happens when keep it True to the Comics kinda goes wrong.... in a "good" way I guess, because it was pretty funny, but so got damn silly. His assembly scene was hilarious, but the character in whole was just kinda fucking absurd comic relief. I can't believe he got as much screen time as he did looking like he did.
It kinda sucks to see him die, but I really can't imagine him moving into another movie series and the director being forced to use him, and not just walk off the fucking set throwing the clip board in the air :D

Kang was good. what their doing with Kang... well, that looks interesting.
Plays right into Loki season 1 ending.

Also there are 2 end scenes. so stick around after the black and white credits.

I heard that this was originally supposed to close out Phase 4 and end on a cliffhanger with Scott and his daughter trapped, but after the schedule shuffle they made it the Phase 5 opener and it got a rewrite that hurt the film.

Feels like the ant-man films are in these weird spots in the phases that hinder them being their own quality things in some way.

Seeing the poor box office numbers, I can assume probably no one here other than me has gone to see The Marvels?

TBH, it was a fun film. Kamala was very enjoyable, but they spoiled most of her good moments in the trailers... but that was because they had no other way of marketing the film since the actor strike only ended a day or 2 before the movie came out.

this movie is better than the B.O. would suggest, but at the same time, I don't blame anyone for not rushing out to theater to see this (or most any other movie), knowing it will be on streaming for free in a few months.

The truth of the matter is that the MCU has lost it's hook, it's sense of 'must watch it now' before I am spoiled, because End Game was the perfect climax, and nothing since has felt all that connected or like a major event that needs to be experienced NOW.

having said all that..... go watch The Marvels
so I'm not alone in here. lol
