Hank: "and blasters."
Scott: "So I take it you didn't have that tech available for me."
Hank: "No, I did."



Antman is the comic book movie of the modern day that fully embraces it's comicbook roots.
It looks like the sequel will do the same.
I am pretty excited.

LOL. How embarrassing for that motorcycle mook to be taken out by a Hello Kitty pez dispenser!

I think I know why they dropped the trailer for the Antman and the Wasp yesterday instead of during the Superbowl.

The badguy on Flash last night shrank a building and walked off with it.

Very funny! I wonder why they decided Jan wouldn't have organic wings?

I think two reasons. First of all that's not Jan, she's Hope (the daughter of Hank and Jan). Second, because that implies a major genetical manipulation which is a very touchy subject in a world that understand it exists, but not what it entails.

It would be funny and a let down if at the end Ghost just becomes dust.

The source of Ghost's many powers is the cybernetic battlesuit so she would just be defeated by the suit no longer working, I think.
Also the character is gender-flipped: Ghost has always been male in the comics.
But good for us to see another powerful woman onscreen.

Personally I'd love to see a movie starring the Dark Horse superheroine Ghost, but that's a whole 'nother story.

I might contend that while male-looking the comic book Ghost was pretty much gender-neutral, up until the Thunderbolts run, the character was more or less defined just by its hatred for corporations.

Antman is my favorite Marvel movie.
Antman and the Wasp is now my favorite Marvel movie by far.

What chemistry these to have together.
They look and act great together both in costume and in their civies.
Plenty of action, humor and story.
They made a big movie by going small.

Kind of refreshing to see a comic book movie that had some drama and heroic action without relying on some villain trying to take over the world.

When it comes to having fun, the writers at Marvel have got it nailed. While i'll say the movie was OK.....It was pretty fun.

I give Ant-Man and the Wasp two thumbs up.

Kudos for not having it revolve around a villian.

Nice bits of Ghost and Wasp being kick-ass women.

The movie ain't Schindler's List or even disserving of a Best Picture nod, but it is pretty fun.   Hank carries around a bunch of shrunken cars in a hot wheels carrier.  They throw a giant hello kitty pez dispenser at a motorcycle!  Hank powers his lab with D Battery grown to giant size.  (Just don't think about these things very long.)

They also keep the movie moving along fairly well, tossing in enough action scenes to pep things up.  I really liked some of the Wasp fights.

They also use the de-aging CGI trick they used on Douglas in Ant-Man a few times in this (and once casting Laurence Fishburnes son to play him as a younger man).

The movie is just fun, not in the Guardians of the Galaxy I way, but it's own way that's satisfying (and  endearing in parts).  Marvel is learning to allow the movies to have their own tone and color pallette, letting the movies be more unique.  This is a good thing.  Of the last movies the only one that really felt like the old "Marvel" format was Avengers:Infinity War (and it probably should).  GotG,Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, and Ant-Man and the Wasp all do a great job of being their own thing.   It does give me hope for Captain Marvel (that at least Marvel is going to swing for something hopefully).

The other Phase Three movies, Captain America Civile War (normal marvel movie, but it really felt like another Avengers movie).  Doctor Strange had a bit of uniqueness to it, but I'd say it'd largest failing is not investing more into that.  I always felt let down that we didn't get Ditko super-colorful, psychedelic energy swirls, when we did get symbols, they were all in the same energy color and were thing electric like arcs.  Not to mention I'm pretty sure there is a Dikto panel or two showing that only sorcerors see the energy. So a Dramatic Sceen of Strange vs. someone doing this fanastic fight and then having someone normal see the two looking all stupid making the gestures with no sound/light happening for humor.  I liked Dr. Strange but I thought it could have been better.  I'd like to think that if it came after this lateset crop of movies it might have been.  Sadly, they set the world of Dr. Strange in the first movie.  I hope they pull a Thor: Ragnarok and elevete the next Dr. Strange to even higher levels.
