The Wasp becomes the second superhero title in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to be passed from parent to child. The first was Black Panther. See more »
Throughout the movie the lab is shrunk and moved, it is also moved haphazardly yet when the building is enlarged again at a new location, it automatically has electricity, plumbing, and nothing seems out of place when it was pretty much in an earthquake. However we are given explanations for these in the movie. Firstly, the lab is entirely self contained, and powered by the giant AA batteries we see. Second, they arm "gyroscopic stabilizers" before they shrink the lab, to protect its contents. See more »

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 »
I love what Marvel have done in the creation of their "Universe" it's an overwhelming triumph and despite my fears they managed to slot Antman in there perfectly back in 2015.
A heavily comedic character is was heavy on charm, humour and elevated by a fantastic charm. Truth be told I found myself really hyped for the second movie, more than any other (Except GotG).
With every cast member both big and small returning a fantastic villian and the one and only Laurence Fishburne, the stars were aligning for another fantastic addition to the universe. And it is................kind of.
Regarding the previous films I've enjoyed them all with the exception of two. I didn't see the appeal in Dr Strange and thought that Black Panther was one of the most overrated movies in the history of the industry.
Antman 2 delivers, it does just not to the extent I hoped. Rudd, Lilly and Douglas are excellent once again and the story is fantastic though I think much of the impact of some of the story is highly lacking.
Our new villian delivered more than I'd ever expected, Pfeiffer was a great addition and Pena managed to annoy me less than usual!
The first movie got a solid 7/10 from me and this sequel is recieving the same. What that means is I consider it a good film, it's just not exactly groundbreaking stuff. I feel the movie played it a tad safe and didn't meet its potential.
Regardless it's funny, it's action packed and it's likeable and therefore it's another Marvel success in my book.
Fits into the universe well
I still don't like Pena
Some of the impact was lost
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Lilly is a very clever actress who picks her roles well
Someone still needs to explain to me how they do that age regression thing sfx
Walton Goggins has friends in high places
The size shifting has all kinds of bedroom possibilities
Truth serum IS a thing
