'Ant-Man And The Wasp' Early Buzz: Another Fun, Hilarious And Self-Contained Adventure

Late Friday night, the first reactions to Marvel's latest superhero sequel hit the web.

Ant-Man and the Wasp has been screened for critics, and the first reactions from social media have started to surface. So far, the buzz is pretty damn high with many calling it fun and hilarious, praising the creative use of size (both big and small), and one reaction even thinks it's Marvel's best sequel since Captain America: The Winter Soldier. That sounds like high praise, so without further adieu, we'll let the reactions speak for themselves.

First up, here's our own Peter Sciretta with his reaction to the sequel, which is a little more subdued than the rest:

Meanwhile, the rest of those lucky enough to catch the first advanced screening are a little more thrilled:


So there you have it. Those are all the reactions that came out immediately when the social media embargo lifted. There might be more reactions on the way, so stay tuned for any additional takes on the film. As of now, this is good news for the Marvel Studios sequel. It sounds like they may have let director Peyton Reed get a little more oddball than he was allowed with the first outing for Ant-Man, and there's a chance it might rival the comedy of Thor: Ragnarok, which would be an impressive feat.

Of course, what everyone is going to be most curious about are the two post-credits scenes that Ant-Man and the Wasp has. Some of the reactions above allude to what is revealed in those credits scenes, and it certainly has my interest piqued. However, it sounds like the movie as a whole may not deal much with any connective tissue for Avengers: Infinity War. So maybe it's the post-credits scenes that create the direct connection to Avengers 4 that Kevin Feige was recently talking about in an Ant-Man and the Wasp featurette.

The full review embargo for Ant-Man and the Wasp will be up at 12pm ET/9am PT on June 27, so come back for a more extensive reaction to the sequel at that time. Otherwise, you'll just have to be patient and wait for the sequel to hit theaters on July 6, 2018.
