The Marvel Universe is full of larger-than-life heroes taking part in fights across the universe(s)… but it also has its tiny heroes waging war on microscopic battlefields.
Ant-Man, played by Paul Rudd, returns in this sequel to the original Ant-Man, this time sharing the spotlight with Hope Van Dyne, aka The Wasp (portrayed by Fort Saskatchewan-born Evangeline Lilly).
In Ant-Man and the Wasp, our heroes trying to reach the Quantum realm, a sub-atomic universe, in order to rescue Janet Van Dyne, mother of Hope and the original Wasp.
But a new mysterious enemy stands in their way: the Ghost.
Where the Marvel universe is usually all about epic sagas and Earth-shattering fights, the Ant-Man movies are happy to offer light and humorous stories. Director Peyton Reed adeptly blends elements from heist movies and comedy to give us a fun movie that stands out in the Marvel Universe.
It also helps that its two stars, Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly have a great chemistry, Lilly acting as a great straight (wo)man to Paul Rudd’s comedic genius.
This chemistry between Rudd and Lilly carries the movie and makes sure that the jokes land their target… as small as it might be.
