MCU Filmathon: Ant-Man
But first we will start with Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) who is the man in the suit. At first audiences
Other great casting comments go to Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, the man responsible for the Ant-Man suit and for putting Scott in it. He has a certain level of authority about him but also a playful side which allows the audience to connect with him on a certain level as well.
Other elements of this film work well to keep the audience engaged, like the growing threat of the main antagonist Darren Cross, Scott's daughter being his motive, his engagement with his friend Luis
I feel like I'm saying this too much but a lack of Darren Cross in this film led to a lot of hate being felt for the antagonist without any justification. This bugged me for a little while but after he
The films comedy is definitely on point. Not just being quick and snappy it is also relevant and enjoyable to follow. One example would be the lip sync scenes with Luis voicing over what everyone is saying, it is perfectly timed, unique and turns serious situations with a lot of information into funny moments and they are easy to follow!
I hope I didn't miss anything out with this film, even with the simple story there is a lot of information in it and definitely a strong Marvel movie. Although in my opinion one of the better MCU movies as it never seems to escape reality, almost everything in this film seems like something that can happen in real life (I hope it isn't just me that thinks that) and I like that about this film!
I Salute you for reading! :)
