You remember 2015, right? During that year Marvel released three great films. One of those films was the highly anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron. While that was going on in the universe, Ant-man became his own un-expected hero on another side of the world. Ant-man quickly became many children’s favorite Marvel hero. His ability to shrink to molecule-like sizes introduced Marvel fans to a whole new world. Actually. It wasn’t a new world, just one we had not really noticed because it’s so small we never pay much attention to it. We could see things from an ant’s perspective and see the most mundane things in a huge and new light that fascinated everyone’s imagination.
This year, we finally got the sequel to Ant-man. With that sequel we are finally introduced to one of Marvel comic book’s most important characters, the Wasp. What many do not know is that, the Wasp is one of the longest standing characters of the Avengers comic books. She had a huge impact on the franchise itself. Many fans, including myself, were finally able to see this little super hero in a very big way. Now, without spoiling, I will say that this movie has its surprising moments, and let’s just say that many who have seen the movie will recommend you watch it to its entirety.
I was super excited as I sat through the previews awaiting the movie to begin. The movie sets a serious tone, but the overall atmosphere is a fun and enjoyable experience for the whole family to enjoy. The action was great, the story was engaging, and the I loved every minute of it. I have been following the Marvel movies very closely, especially any related to the Avengers franchise. And I can definitely say that if you are also an Avenger’s fan, Ant-man and the Wasp is a must see for its surprising connection to that franchise.
