Spoilers ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’: villains, credit scenes and ties to ‘Avengers’

Well, Marvel has made the credit scenes a staple for action films and Ant-Man and the Wasp is no exception having a mid-credits and a post-credit scene.

INFINITY WAR

The film is set to run parallel to the Infinity War events, but makes no mention of the attacks on New York or Wakanda. Don’t expect references or anything linked to those events. The mid-credit scene is it…

Scott heads into the Quantum Realm to fill a canister of this material to help Ava (Ghost). There is a mention of a “time vortex” by Hank, warning Scott to stay clear. Just as Scott completely fills the device, he loses connection to Hank, Janet and Hope.

When the camera cuts back to the outside world we see the dust of the three characters…all victims to Thanos’ finger snap.

My advice is don’t stay for the end credit scene.

During the film, the characters rig up Scott’s ankle tracker (he’s on house arrest as part of his plea deal after Civil War) to one of the large ants. The scene is the Ant playing the drums…a riff off of a gag setup earlier in the film.

AVENGERS 4

My message to Marvel….thanks for nothing.

Ant-Man and the Wasp is one great big nothing burger. If this were a comic book, it would be a 4-part mini-series titled The Wasp and NO ONE would read it or care.

The entire film is centered around saving Janet from the Quantum Realm and showcasing Hope’s skills. Both characters are taken in the Thanos move so….nothing matters?

I expected the “time vortex” move to be key and Scott would get sucked into 2012 New York somehow, maybe even setting up a cool cameo which was kept quiet.

Nope.

MISC SPOILERS

Scott can’t use his suit well at all. One some points he’s the size of a hobbit and many times he can’t transform big or small when he needs to…this gets kind of old once it matters to the story.

The humor comes and goes. Michael Pena’s flashback, which uses his voice over the characters, is fantastic. Rudd is really not funny much at all.

Hot Wheels cars add to the action sequence at the end of the film, making for an entertaining addition to the climax of the film. Luis gets to be funny and still involved and it closes out the film well.

The virtue signally of empowering these women was a bit much at time. Hey Marvel, we get that you want an All-female Avengers team, but Ant-Man is still in the film and Hank is really, REALLY smart, so reducing them in this film was strange is some ways.

Ants. Why do we need so many ants? The “Ant jokes” just don’t work as well in this first film, except for the climax which involves a flock of seagulls – that was hysterical.
