There are still two weeks left for Ant-Man and the Wasp to debut in theaters, however, Marvel Studios offered last Friday night the first feature of the film for the press. Of course, the reactions of the attendees soon arrived on Twitter.
In general, critics praised the humor of the film, a label that generally characterizes studio productions. In addition, several comments placed emphasis on the intelligent use of the abilities to change the size of the protagonists.
Here we collect some of the impressions without spoilers left by the first Ant-Man and the Wasp function.
Peter Sciretta of SlashFilm says: “Ant-Man and The Wasp is very funny. His best moment is when it’s almost a silly comedy, it’s less when he focuses on the comic moments centered on the villains. Some fantastic miniature / giant action sequences. Michael Peña is stealing the film again.”
Ant-Man and The Wasp is a lot of fun. At its best when it’s almost an over the top silly comedy, less so when it’s about the comic booky villain driven moments. Some fantastic miniature/maxature action sequences. @realmichaelpena steals the show again.

“Do not expect to get answers from Infinity War,” added Sciretta. “The movie is almost a solo movie, even more so than the first one. That said, you’re stupid if you do not sit in your seat for credits, more now than in other Marvel movies. The movie has a surprising heart, good action, lots of laughs and if you liked the first one, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the sequel.”
The movie has some surprising heart, great action, lots of laughs. If you liked the first film, you will be pleasantly surprised with this sequel.

Brandon Davis of Comicbook went further, and compared the new movie to a favorite of Marvel Studios fans. “Ant-Man and The Wasp is strong in humor, impressive in visual effects, creative in size manipulation and intelligent in his ‘villains’. Good movie, “he wrote. Ant-Man and The Wasp is the best sequel to Marvel from The Winter Soldier. Evangeline Lilly is my new favorite superhero Peyton Reed hit her outside the stadium! Tremendous movie!”

Steven Weintraub de Collider said: “In which for no one is a surprise Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man and The Wasp is very funny and had the audience laughing from start to finish. Marvel Studios has another winner. Kevin Feige makes it look simple when we all know that what he has done is close to the impossible.”
In a surprise to no one @MrPeytonReed‘s #AntManAndTheWasp is a ton of fun and had the crowd laughing beginning to end. @MarvelStudios has yet another winner. @Kevfeige makes it look so easy when we all know what he’s done is next to impossible. pic.twitter.com/coixY7LG40

Drew Taylor of Moviefone said: “A small impression: Ant-Man and The Wasp is a total fun. Romantic, energetic and very entertaining. Peyton Reed left in freedom for his own devices is glorious, totally crazy and bright.”
A tiny take: #AntManAndTheWasp was a total blast. Romantic, energetic and a lot of fun. @MrPeytonReed left unchained and left to his own devices is glorious and totally bonkers and brilliant. pic.twitter.com/QZ8okR76eG

For Mike Ryan of Uproxx: “Ant-Man and The Wasp is surely an improvement from the first movie (I did not love the first Ant-Man). Lilly’s Wasp has at least the same amount, or probably more, action scenes than Rudd’s Ant-Man. Also Michael Peña has a scene in the middle of the movie that throws the house down.”
ANT-MAN AND THE WASP is for sure an upgrade from the first film (I didn’t love the first Ant-Man). Lilly’s Wasp has at least the same, or probably more, action scenes than Rudd’s Ant-Man.
Also: Michael Peña has a scene halfway through that brings the house down.

Wendy Lee Szany of The Movie Couple said: “I just had the pleasure of watching Ant-Man and the Wasp. It’s so fun I can not wait to see her again. I loved watching Evangeline Lilly’s Wasp in action.”

Joseph Deckelmeier of That Hashtag Show highlighted above all the humor of the film. “Amé Ant-Man and the Wasp. I do not think I’ve laughed so much in a Marvel movie even when Ragnarok exists. A nice change of tone after Infinity War The union is perfect!”, He pointed out.
I loved #AntManAndTheWasp. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so much in a Marvel movie, though Ragnarok is up there. Nice change of pace from Infinity War. The emsemble is perfect!

Finally Collider’s Haleigh Foutch warns that viewers should stay until the end of the credits in the film. “I liked Ant-Man and the Wasp too much , ” he wrote. “Intelligent and charming with a lot of heart. It’s a little charged to the explosions, but the rest is a damn delight. A joke had me laughing so much that I was crying. The post-credit scene is easily one of Marvel’s best.”
Dug the heck out of #AntManAndTheWasp. Clever and charming with lots of heart. It’s a bit exposition heavy, but otherwise a damn delight. One gag had me laughing so hard I was in tears and the post-credits scene is easily one of Marvel’s best.
