Expected in our theaters on February 15, “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” marks the start of Phase V of the MCU. Was this departure convincing? Answers with the first American notices.
So here is the Marvel Cinematic Universe again. And Ant-Man. Three months after the release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which served as the conclusion of Phase IV, it is Ant-Man who launches V.
On the program of the film directed by Peyton Reed (like the two previous parts of the trilogy): a family trip to the quantum world, science fiction and, above all, a new villain in the person of Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors ), who reveals the extent of his powers after an appearance in Loki’s Season 1 finale.
Expected in our theaters from February 15, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Has Quantumania convinced the American media? Elements of response with the first opinions on the Marvel film.
“THE PHASE HAS BEGUN! The new Ant-Man is a roller coaster full of creepy and hilarious oddities, plus a VERY menacing Kang. Big Star Wars vibes in the MCU at the height of its quirkiness and inventiveness. MODOK is hilarious, but it’s Jonathan Majors who captivates us. I loved the trip!”
“Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is great! And the movie answers some of the questions we have about where the MCU is going. It takes a little time to get into it. , but there are great action scenes, creative visuals and a super villain with Kang. A solid start for Phase V.”
Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ is a solid start for Phase V. Now I understand why it’s called Quantumania [le film se passe dans le monde quantique et on retrouve le nom d’Ant-Man dans le mot ‘Quantumania’, ndlr]. Jonathan Majors is great as Kang, and I can’t wait to see where it goes. There are two post-credits scenes, and they’re all great.”
A solid start for the MCU’s Phase V
“Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is the best of the trilogy. Higher stakes, danger and consequences. It also has one of the MCU’s best villains in Kang. As soon as Jonathan Majors appears, it’s his show. Kang is a big creepy multiverse villain. Also: two cool post-credits scenes.”
“After a frustrating first act, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania finally takes off, but only to end where the story should have begun. While the external stakes are clear and high, the emotional part is light (and the levity even more). That being said, Jonathan Majors delivers.”
“Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is a lively and lively dive into the strangest corners of [l’univers] Marvel. A little mixed on some choices, but the things that work have an IMPACT. The MCU is now the Jonathan Majors franchise.”
A vivid and lively dive into the strangest corners of the Marvel Universe
“Thanos was just the starter, Kang the Conqueror played by Jonathan Majors is the main course. Majors portrays Kang with a mixture of brilliance and poise, and makes him a menacing, cunning villain with a hint of charm. Kang dominates head and shoulders.”
“Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is, by far, the strangest and most goofy MCU film to date. Jonathan Majors stands out strongly. Kang pulls the film up. Majors and Paul Rudd are intense face-to-face. Lots of CGI, crazy new characters, and an exciting trajectory for the MCU saga.”
“Visually imaginative and very different from the other two Ant-Man films. The first is still the best, but this one is better than the second. frustrated. Overall good, but not great.”
Alas, Marvel focuses more on the needs of the MCU than on the heart of the stories each film tells.
“Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is basically Peyton Reed’s unproduced Star Wars, but with Ant-Man. I still can’t figure out if that’s a good thing. I love Star Wars (obviously), but I’ve been missing a lot of the elements that make the first two Ant-Mans so fun. It’s more ‘cohesive’ than most of Marvel’s later releases, and the family focus helps keep the story rooted in the ground.
There’s a moment where you can see Marvel holding back. If they had gone all the way, it would have elevated the film considerably. Alas, Marvel focuses more on the needs of the MCU than on the heart of the stories each movie tells.”
“Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is a super weird movie. And arguably the most Star Wars of all the Marvel movies. At times the humor was overly ridiculous and took me out of the movie. I think the reviews will diverge greatly on MODOK.”
“Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania goes to great lengths to present itself as one big epic sci-fi movie. A mix of Star Wars, Fifth elementof Dune and D’Avalonia. It probably won’t work for everyone, but I liked the tone. A little chaotic towards the end, but it ends well. Kang delivers.”
To make up your mind, see you on February 15 in French cinemas.
