Ant-Man and The Wasp has been getting rave reviews left and right. First, it was the critics who got to see a screening this past weekend and then it was Guardians of the Galaxy helmer James Gunn, but we all know that the true test is what Rotten Tomatoes has to say. While it’s not always the case, Rotten Tomatoes can make or break a film. Remember that time Warner Bros. had their score delayed until after the film had already come out? Or that time Black Panther debuted with a perfect score then went on to break literally all the records? So, how did Ant-Man and the Wasp make out? Let’s see!
Well, it’s Certified Fresh with a 90%! The rating is well above the 82% that 2015’s Ant-Man received. The critic consensus on the site reads, “A lighter, brighter superhero movie powered by the effortless charisma of Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly, Ant-Man and The Wasp offers a much-needed MCU palate cleanser.”
So, where does that early score land Ant-Man and The Wasp on the list of Marvel scores from recent years? Let’s take a look!
Black Panther – 96%
Thor: Ragnarok – 92%
Spider-Man: Homecoming – 92%
Marvel’s The Avengers – 92%
Captain America: Civil War – 91%
Guardians of the Galaxy – 91%
Ant-Man and The Wasp – 90%
Doctor Strange – 89%
Avengers: Infinity War – 83%
Guardians of the Galaxy 2 – 83%.
Ant-Man – 82%
Avengers: Age of Ultron: 75%
Ant-Man and The Wasp is pretty much in the middle of the MCU pack, but any score that debuts in the 90s is certainly a win! Starring Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Pena, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfieffer, Walton Goggins and Hannah John Kamen, Ant-Man and the Wasp follows Scott Lang as he struggles to balance being both a superhero and a father. Meanwhile, Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym present an urgent new mission that finds the Ant-Man and The Wasp fighting to uncover secrets from their past.
The movie hits theaters July 6, 2018!
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
