“In Quantum we are deepening and complicating family dynamics as we paint our story on a much larger canvas. In the first two films we had started to feel the waters of the Quantum Realm and this time we wanted to give the film a completely different look: it is an epic experience”.
The word Peyton Reed, also director of the two previous films. The stakes are high, she says Reed, Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania lays the groundwork for several films to follow. “Creating the Quantum Realm is the ultimate act of creation. The idea is that our protagonists go deeper into the Quantum Realm than we’ve seen in previous films. In addition to creating the look of these cities and civilizations, we had to create an internal logic and a story, as well as populate these places with a wide variety of creatures, living beings and structures.
Look out for the Little Guy!
The prerequisites of the director are all there and basically the film has all the cards on the table to give an impactful start to the new phase Marvelafter fan criticism for the Phase 4. If this is the moodthe hope is that of a radical change in the next project, because the result that comes from this film is a family comedy in the Quantum Realm. Scott Lang finally wants to be a father, make up for the time lost with his daughter Cassie – now of age -, and enjoy good time with the family. His problem is that her life seems to have stopped when she saved the world in Avengers: Endgame and here the superhero dilemma returns. What are you willing to sacrifice to see your loved ones again, even destroy alternate timelines? The stakes are raised when space-time takes over.

The film has no time to waste and within minutes we find ourselves in the remote depths of the subatomic world. The relationship between Scott e Cassie has always been a staple in the films of Ant-Man. Throughout the film the duo Paul Rudd e Kathryn Newton it works in some moments, but the problem lies in the script which drops in intensity and pace in these two hours and five minutes. Secrets between family members and the constant unsaid are the protagonists throughout the first half of the film, where we discover a Quantum Realm entirely new.
New peoples, creatures, customs, languages and customs of beings who owe a great deal to the world of Dune, Star Wars o Mad Max. On a visual level, everything is done much better than some visual effects seen in other products Marvel (you see She-Hulk), but they are not enough to make Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania the best opening for the Phase 5. The massive design work of the Quantum Realm it is not valued enough by a purely functional direction, nor by a photography that is perhaps too dark and desaturated.
Kang the Conqueror
The great task of the film is to initiate what has been called the Dynasty in Kang. Presenting – or rather – re-presenting Kang the Conquerorfirst seen in the season finale of Loki. A tip before seeing the film: rewatch of the sixth episode.

The last episode of the first season of Loki revolutionized theMCUintroducing Kang the Conqueror. In the comics Marvel is a dangerous enemy of avengers. In the series, the one who is left is in fact a variant of this villain which warns Sylvia which will soon meet again (referring to other variants). In the comics Marvel, Kang the Conquerorwhich debuted in 1963 in The Fantastic Four (vol. 1) no. 19, frequently assumes other identities. Coming from the thirtieth century, Kang can travel through time. During some adventures he meets the Avengers: The team of heroes has repeatedly fought against the villain.
Jonathan Majors has a huge responsibility on his shoulders. In addition to his powerful physique (due to the upcoming role in Creed III), the actor must be able to detach himself from the shadow of Thanos, in the imagination of the fans Marvel still too present. The introduction of villain half succeeds and several times an end of everything is mentioned (already mentioned in Loki), time is not what we know. What arrives is a mix of stories, locations that would like to echo a spirit of wonder in style Journey to the Center of the Earth with suggestions a lot starwarsiane (the domain of Kang and troops like Darth Vader).
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania suffers from the absence of Scott Lang for the whole Phase 4. He probably needed a more intimate film like his previous ones. Thus it would have given more space to the characters and less to the horizontal plot of the universe MCU. In fact, the film stages a self-conclusive story with an ending that closes the vertical plot. All, however, to the detriment of the director’s initial purpose of “updating” characters who have not been present on the scene for some time and introduce new ones. Deepen family relationships in a different context than usual: the Quantum Realm and stop a universe-destroying conqueror.
If some previous films have been criticized for their length, in this case a few more minutes would not have been bad. We could have known more about the peoples and creatures of the subatomic world. Fascinating beings with too much interpretation family friendly which decays in the cauldron of classic criticism of the world Disney.
Ant-Man and The Wasp Quantumania, a blend of pop culture
A film that had so much potential, but that the Mickey Mouse house he braked, he didn’t dare where he could and the result can be translated into an adventure de The Incredibles. The memory of the saga di Spy Kids Of robert rodriguez has arrived. In a blend of family dynamics and witty situations, Ant-Man and the Wasp Quantuma repeats a lot pop culturebut in the end each element worked better in other circumstances, even in the recently underrated animated film Disney Strange World.
The film Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania represents pure family fun, where the characters are never really in danger. In fact, the problems dissolve with a few jokes and a deus ex machina at the Gandalf In the The two Towers. Hope is now Kang. Hopefully, more originality towards character madness will be embraced in the future. The multiple incarnations of him can be used on more original narrative registers than the one seen, perhaps in the second season of Loki. Il Marvel Cinematic Universe it’s basically just like Kangeverything and nothing where there is a very small breach in the madness – necessary – and that’s it with the curtains from sitcom that only James Gunn can handle.
