Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (2023)


The first Ant-Man is one of the best Marvel movies because of its goofy charm and low stakes. This bad sequel throws out everything that made the original so likable in favor of a gloomy, weightless journey through CGI hell with a villain (Kang, played by Jonathan Majors) who has a confusing set of powers and limitations.

It’s humorless and boring, despite the presence of Bill Murray, whose arrival in the Marvel Cinematic Universe should have felt like a much bigger event.

The Thor and Captain America franchises yielded some sequels that were superior to the original. Not so with Ant-Man.
