Marvel’s “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” hits theaters on February 17, 2023. The social media embargo has just been lifted for the film and first reactions are already beginning to drop online.
Initial reviews are overwhelmingly positive with praise for the film’s action, humor and some calling it the MCU’s Star Wars.
Take a look at what everyone is saying below:
Had a blast with #AntManAndTheWaspQuantumania Paul Rudd has never been better & Jonathan Majors effortlessly conquers every second of screen-time he gets, BUT the real star of the film is Jeff Loveness’ script: a reminder of how beautifully strange & mysterious the MCU still is. pic.twitter.com/MYoL6WPlmU

Had an absolute blast watching #AntManAndTheWaspQuantumania. Creative, irresistibly energetic and filled with some great action sequences. Welcome Jonathan Majors -such a bad ass. The effects are superb. pic.twitter.com/KdVB7qvl2E

#AntManAndTheWaspQuantumania was good. The CGI was stunning. The Quantum Realm is seriously beautiful, but the story was a bit underwhelming. The film was entertaining & the humor was good. Michelle Pfiefer stands out from this film. #AntManAndTheWasp pic.twitter.com/FXPHKPvOVU

ANT-MAN AND THE WASP: QUANTUMANIA … trying to imagine a Marvel novice, “one ticket please,” then getting two hours of variant and multiverse talk. Jonathan Majors is great as Kang and for a good portion of the movie Michelle Pfeiffer is the main character, which is awesome

Marvel’s #AntManAndTheWaspQuantumania is a strong start to Phase 5. I now understand why it’s called #Quantumania. JonathanMajors is excellent as Kang and cannot wait to see where this all goes. 2 after the credits scenes and both are very good. pic.twitter.com/62Ch3w2O5N

ANT-MAN AND THE WASP: QUANTUMANIA is a blast, and finally answers some of the “where is the MCU going?” questions. Takes a minute to pick up, but has some great action scenes, creative visuals and a terrific villain in Kang. A solid start to Phase 5. #AntManAndTheWaspQuantumania pic.twitter.com/SaAwnZwOre

#AntManAndTheWaspQuantumania has way too much going on — it’s tough to connect emotionally to any of it. Jonathan Majors’ Kang is a charismatic, intense baddy and visually awesome, but the threat he represents is too abstract. Review @CNET on Feb. 14. pic.twitter.com/42bDJobRgc

#AntManAndTheWaspQuantumania is the best MCU film since Wakanda Forever. Majors is perfect as Kang, his comedic timing is sure to get a lot of laughs. Reed uses The Volume expertly, with the best use of visual effects I’ve ever seen. Fans should stay until the very end 🤯👀🤐 pic.twitter.com/9J5JsDhceX

#AntManAndTheWaspQuantumania is a light & psychedelic space opera à la Marvel that starts Phase 5 on a mostly good note while keeping the spirit of the previous Ant-Man films. The introduction of Kang shifts the movie in full gear and doesn’t disappoint thanks to Jonathan Majors. pic.twitter.com/puvp0cyZdC
