Oh don't get me wrong. I enjoyed it. But it's like you said, it's enjoyable because it is a smaller movie. Neither Ant-Man is ever going to be my favorite comic book movie, but I'll always be up for watching them. And yes Woo was great, I hope he got the hang of those magic card tricks.

And just like with Spider-man I like that nobody was worrying about saving the entire world...

Also, even though we’d have to wait a long time until she’s an adult, I want the kid playing Cassie here to play Cassie as Stature. Not only was she the best kid in a Marvel movie she might be the best kid in a live action movie like this in a long time...usually all the best kid actors are in “serious” Oscar buzzy films. She felt like the right mix of moppet and real kid that I really loved. Like she did and said things my own daughter actually does or did lol

Oh Cassie is the best and I dug her dreaming about being a hero like her dad as a Stature nod. I could see an eventual MCU film doing like a future sneak-peek like we got with the DoFP movie where Cassie has become Stature.

Again bro, I'm not dissing the movie for being a smaller, more personal threat. Homecoming was great for that as it was the story of Spider-Man stepping up his game. But with the vast array of comic book movies we have, it's a mid-card act. And there's nothing wrong with that. It ranks above many movies.

Unfortunately, not every cute little kid goes through a smooth adolescence.

I was waiting for Cassie to say her hero name should be Stature. Also, completely agree, I enjoyed Woo and told my friends about Angents of Atlas.

She's probably more likely to be choose Stinger given that's what she's known as in both MC2 and now in 616, also IMHO I feel the name just 'fits better' alongside Ant-Man and Wasp.

Finally got around to seeing this. Lots of good little scenes but I had the same feeling as Wade, it just feels a bit misplaced after Infinity War. Even as a sort of more light-hearted palette cleanser in-between serious movies. I did appreciate the smaller stakes though and that there's no real cackling villain or anything (aside from Walton Goggins but he's just a gangster).

It finally comes out in the UK this week, the internet has pretty much spoiled the big plot points for me already but I'm still psyched for this.

I'm amazed it took so long to come out over there. That's really shocking.

It was the World Cup and a few films get rescheduled because I log it. Ridiculous.

I didn't know that's the reason why, ridiculous indeed!

Anyway fun film like others have said. Cassie was adorable, interesting and sympathetic villain, Bill Foster was good and glad to see Wasp get in on the action. Would have liked to see more of original Wasp, but I did like that despite being trapped in microworld (or whatever they call it) that she was still very positive and happy person.

I predict that over the years, AM&W will get 3-5x more views on the streaming services than A4.

This is a fun movie with lots of potential for re-watching over the years. It may not have the strength to become a classic like Back to the Future, but it fits right into that class of film, and has just as much potential for a long life.

A4 on the other hand, has nearly zero re-watch potential, IMO. All spectacle and no character. The only reason to re-watch it is to fill a spot in the continuity of the MCU as you watch all the others in order. Even then, it’s pretty skippable so long as you know the end. I’m as likely to re-watch A4 as I am to re-watch the first Transformers movie.

Sometimes it feels like we’re like a yin and yang nuD lol...although I really like A&W, I’ve seen A4 3 times already...and I’m not the only person i know that’s seen it multiple times. Of course that’s anecdotal, just illustrates how differently these things are lol

Right, A3. That’s what I meant.
