Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania is poised to launch Phase 5 of the MCU into the depths of the Multiverse Saga full throttle as Scott Lang/Ant-Man and Hope Van Dyne/The Wasp look to take on the next big bad of the MCU, Kang the Conqueror; a role that marks the first appearance of Jonathan Majors as the Multiverse Saga’s big bad, but also the second appearance of Majors in a Kang-related role’ with the first being a Kang variant, He Who Remains, as seen in the season finale of “Loki” Season One.
Last night Marvel Studios held its red carpet world premiere for the upcoming film which saw the film’s stars, filmmakers, producers, celebrity guests, and TikTok stars grace the floor for photo ops with themselves and the hundreds of fans who were there to greet the stars. Those in attendance also got to see the film quite early and were able to provide their initial reactions and sentiments on social media shortly after the film concluded.
While not all journalists or press representatives got to see the film, those who did, brought forth a mixed bag of reactions to the launch of Phase 5 of the MCU, which by the looks of the sentiments we have posted below, many expectations were met while others were not. One thing’s for certain is that Jonathan Majors’ debut as Kang the Conqueror has wowed critics already, with many praising the hot actor as the film’s standout, which we were all expecting. If you weren’t expecting that, we highly recommend that you watch more films.
