Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania Review
Paul Rudd has delivered another entertaining performance, as he did in the previous two Ant-Man films. His comedic timing is excellent. The Wasp, played by Evangeline Lilly, is adequate but has less stage time.
Janet and Cassie are the characters who receive the most screen time. Janet’s role is crucial among them because she is the only one who is completely familiar with the worlds of worlds in the Quantum Realm. Ant-Man and The Wasp is a good watch, thanks to her subtle performance and Cassie’s charm.
Jeff Loveness writes a mediocre story that is easily predicted. The superhero film also lacks the appropriate emotions that we typically see in Marvel films. The father-daughter (Scott Lang-Cassie) duo could have been given more emotional treatment by the author.
On the other hand, the antagonist and his villainy should have received more attention. In Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, however, the director reveals little about Kang: The Conqueror, a variant of He Who Remains (from Loki series).
Kang is said to be the most powerful and dangerous villain, even killing Avengers in an alternate universe, but he was shown to be less powerful in Ant-Man 3. This may disappoint Marvel fans who had high expectations for the film.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania Review: Final Verdict
In conclusion, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is not up the hype that the film has generated. The storyline could have been a lot better to make this film crispier and more entertaining. There is nothing much that comes out of the film except of the surprise that appears in the post-credit scene. Only watch it in the theatres if your are a hardcore Marvel fan.
