ANT-MAN AND THE WASP: QUANTUMANIA
REVIEW FOR NEW MOVIE
ADRIANNA LOYD, REPORTER
“Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” was released to the theaters on Feb. 17. The sequel brings back Paul Rudd as Scott Lang and his daughter Cassie, played by Kathryn Newton, who navigate the quantum realm to find their way back home. Scott must encounter a new antagonist, Kang the Conqueror, and defend not only the quantum realm but his dimension as well.
Kang the Conqueror, portrayed by Jonathan Majors, is a supervillain from another dimension whose goal is to conquer as many worlds as possible from different dimensions throughout the multiverse. This character was derived from classic marvel comics and is known for his many abilities including super strength, speed, the ability to control forms of technology, and time travel. Ant-Man and the Wasp are on a mission to return home, decide to help Kang to retrieve an energy ball that could travel the multiverse and achieve his goal in exchange for Ant-Man's daughter. After the deal goes sour, Scott decides to take down Kang all together.
This movie created a huge turning point for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The introduction of this new antagonist changes the fate of the characters and the universe they defend. Overall, this film is not exactly what you’d expect from a Marvel movie. If I were to rate this film out of five stars I’d give it a four out of five. With its odd characters, worlds, and special effects, the movie brings a lot of “Star Wars” elements to the film, making it enjoyable, fun, and a movie worth seeing.
