According to the report, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantum Mania has earned over $100 million at the US box office and over $220 million worldwide in its first three days. It is the first Marvel film to hit theaters since November’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
The 31st film of Marvel Studios was eagerly awaited by the fans but the critics called it a flop before its release. Some called it marginally better than the worst Marvel movie ever, ‘Eternals’, while others called it the worst movie of the year. Despite the bad reviews, critics believe that the success of this movie is due to other filmmakers. The film has earned double the opening weekend business of the first Ant-Man film and is the 31st consecutive Marvel film to debut at the top position at the box office.
The story of ‘Quantum Mania
The story of ‘Quantum Mania’ revolves around Scott Lang and his family who, as a result of an experiment, end up in a place called the Quantum Realm, where Ant-Man’s partner The Wasp’s mother, Janet, has been separated from her father, Hank Pym, by several years. After being imprisoned, he was able to be released.
This time it’s none other than Scott Lang’s daughter Cassie who is transported to the Quantum Realm, who manages to do so with the help of Hank Pym. They have to defeat a conqueror named Kang who is trapped there after his ship breaks down.What is Kang’s relationship with Janet and why does Janet prevent them from going there? All these and more are shown in this film. The story of the film not only takes the ‘Avengers’ series forward but also ties it up with the upcoming season of the TV series ‘Loki’ in a very good way.
While Paul Rudd, who played Scott Lang and Ant-Man in the film, has done a great job, Jonathan Majors as the villain is the most powerful. He emerged as the biggest Marvel villain after Thanos, who would go on to be featured in an even bigger way in ‘Avengers: The King Dynasty’.
Other notable roles in the film include Kathryn Newton and Michelle Pfeiffer, while Bill Murray also plays a small role. The role of Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lilly in the film is relatively less compared to the previous films, but their importance is very high.
