Goofs

The Wasp's "suit" is RED when she initially enters the quantum zone after shrinking to fit between the molecules to deactivate the missile. When Hank Pym rescues her, she has on a shirt of some sort covering her torso, but it looks as if the suit is BLACK. If observed closely once Hank and Janet are leaving the Quantum Realm it is shown that there is a city with buildings in the realm showing there are beings who live there. It was also confirmed by the director there are civilizations in the Quantum Realm. This is probably where Janet not only had food and shelter but where she received new clothes. See more »

Crazy Credits

SPOILER: There is a scene in the closing credits: while Scott is in the Quantum Realm, the Pym family gets erased (due to Thanos's efforts in Avengers: Infinity War (2018)), leaving him trapped. This leads into Avengers: Endgame (2019).

Following this, there is a statement at the end of the closing credits: "Ant-Man and the Wasp will return?". See more »

Fun Summer Movie
18 July 2018 | by view_and_reviewSee all my reviews

Ant-Man and Wasp was a fun movie. Whereas I didn't see it strongly bolstering the MCU, it didn't harm the MCU at all. I like that they gave Ant-Man a partner (I dare not say sidekick) with similar, yet better abilities.

Now, as for what I wish would've been different/better: the nemesis, Ghost. Ghost has some excellent skills and abilities which I think they (the production team) could've/should've explored more. I mean, the ability to phase in and out almost at will thereby giving the person the ability to pass through solid matter (kinda like Kitty Pride of the X-Men)--that makes for some spectacular fight scenes and other mischief. I'm imagining a fight similar to the opening scene of X-Men 2 when Nightcrawler infiltrated the White House. I know that phasing in and out is different than teleporting but in tight quarters they can be used similarly.

That was my only gripe, which was a small one. Besides wanting more from the bad guy I thought the movie was funny and creative.
