It’s another day and that means it’s time for another part in my updated ranking of the MCU characters. Enjoy!
I liked Hope van Dyne in Ant-Man but I was bummed that she wasn’t getting the chance to be a superhero. That, of course, changed in the sequel where we finally got to see her don her suit, fly, and shoot blasters at foes.
While I like Wasp she’s never been one of my major favorites in the MCU, hence her spot at #30 on this list.
29. Red Guardian
I didn’t think I was going to like the Red Guardian in Black Widow but he turned out to be a fun addition to the MCU roster. Plus his jealousy, rivalry, or infatuation he has with Captain America is quite hilarious and I’m going to need Kevin Feige to have him meet Captain America eventually. I think it would be really fun.
It’s Father’s Day and that means it’s time to look at some of the greatest father figures in cinema. Enjoy!
Scott Lang a.k.a Ant-Man
There aren’t a lot of fathers in the MCU but the most prominent and consistent father/child relationship is Scott and Cassie Lang. Scott cherishes his daughter more than anything in the world and his daughter wants to be just like her dad. It’s an ultra-cute dynamic that has continued over the course of three movies (Ant-Man, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and Avengers: Endgame.)
Now, it’s very likely that the next Ant-Man film will see our first superhero father/daughter team-up which is truly an exciting prospect!
It’s Fan Art Wednesday, woo! I’m so excited to share this week’s two pieces and so with no further delay, here they are.
1. The Vanity Fair Cover Reimagined: Kylo Ren
Vanity Fair unveiled a fascinating piece for The Rise of Skywalker ahead of the film’s release and my sister reimagined the pieces in exciting ways. I can’t get enough of this cape. Oh my goodness, this cape is AMAZING!
Ant-Man and the Wasp is the latest superhero movie to arrive in theaters and with Marvel releasing a new tag team duo with Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man and Evangeline Lilly’s Wasp what is there not to love? But which of the two heroes may be your favorite? Well, that’s what I’m here to ask you all on this week’s segment of Who’s Your Favorite? Enjoy.
Ant-Man is awesome because he’s a regular dude who just so happened to become Ant-Man and it’s truly what makes him so lovable. He’s all of us and so when he does things like becomes Giant-Man or helps save the world he doesn’t handle it in a way that maybe Captain America would. He’s just as shocked at his abilities as we are and that’s why he’s such a fantastic hero.
We have seen his ups and downs (literally) but he has managed to prevail over every obstacle because he is a hero worthy of being an Avenger. And he’s hilarious too. I’m a definite Ant-Man fan. 🙂
Marvel has become a wonderful franchise that people of all ages can enjoy. Some Marvel films are catered to an older audience while others may appeal to younger fans. But which of these movies are the most kid-friendly of the bunch? That’s what I’m here to share with you. Enjoy!
While Ant-Man is catered to a younger audience with a tamer storyline, a villain that isn’t too scary, and an actual child who plays a small but very important role in the film, this movie can also have some rather shocking profanity throughout it. There’s a balance between kid-friendly themes as well as more adult-level jokes and situations but overall it’s a fun film for the whole family.
Ant-Man and the Wasp
Like Ant-Man, Ant-Man and the Wasp is a fun movie that caters heavily toward children. It isn’t dark and gloomy like some of the other Marvel films and, in fact, it has less profanity than its predecessor. It’s simply a fun movie that’ll have your kids bouncing in their seat with joy.
Marvel hasn’t had the best luck with sequels over the years. Iron Man 2 was largely considered worse than its hailed predecessor, Iron Man. Thor: The Dark World, the sequel to Thor,is so bad I’m still trying to figure out why it was even called Thor: The Dark World. And Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was a far cry less enjoyable than the critically acclaimed Guardians of the Galaxy. So, would Ant-Man and the Wasp suffer the same fate? I’m glad to announce that it didn’t.
Ant-Man and the Wasp is a small-story type of movie. There are no surprise Avengers cameos dropping in to make the movie exciting or complex situations that turn the film into a whirlwind of material. Ant-Man and the Wasp take place in one city, in three days, and with four main characters, Scott Lang, Hope van Dyne, Hank Pym, and the constant thorn in their side, Ghost. Simple as that.
It’s always a breath of fresh air to see movie creators decide that less is more. When writers try to over complicate things and make a sequel that’s bouncing all over the place seven times out of ten that movie’s going to end up becoming a confusing hodgepodge of material. Ant-Man and the Wasp does not suffer from that in the slightest.
