I’ve been known to admire the looks of a few of Marvel heroes, but now I’m convinced that Ant-Man is the best Dad material. While I liked the snarky humor of Ant-Man in the 2015 movie, I am so happy to see more personality in Ant-Man and the Wasp. The film opens July 6th in theaters and I’ve got your inside scoop on taking the kids.
Ant-Man and the Wasp Movie Review
What Makes Ant-Man and the Wasp Unique
In the recent Marvel line-up, we’ve seen some pretty heavy storylines. Opening the year with Black Panther having more realistic violence to the deaths in Avengers: Infinity War, we need something light. Ant-Man and the Wasp is a departure from the past few Marvel films with humor woven throughout. There were times our whole theater was laughing from the the crazy antics (pun intended).
We got to see a softer side of Ant-Man, played by Paul Rudd. Ant-Man is working hard in his family life and we get to see him as a very cool Dad. His relationship with daughter is #GOALS.
Marvel fans have also been questioning where Ant-Man and the Wasp falls into the sequence of events that happens in Infinity War – all of that is answered. Of course, they answered it in the most jaw-dropping way possible, which left me wanting more.
You’ll Fall In Love With The Wasp
I really appreciate that Marvel is making great strides to ensure we have strong female characters to admire. Evangeline Lilly’s role as The Wasp was very dynamic. She was strong, independent, and yet, she shows a vulnerable side while searching for answers about her past. I guarantee there will be tons of Wasps this Halloween. I want to be her!
Can You Take the Kids?
Absolutely! Bring the kids to see Ant-Man and the Wasp, especially if they’ve already seen Marvel’s 2018 movies thus far. There were a few “g-d dammits” thrown in, but nowadays that isn’t going to stop me from taking the family.
As for violence, it is an action movie, so there is a certain amount of violence during the action scenes. Once again, nothing like we’ve seen from previous Marvel films this year. It’s the butt-kicking action that you’d expect from any superhero. I loved seeing the fighting between Ant-Man, The Wasp and the Ghost, who plays the villain.
Overall, there isn’t a fear factor that you need to worry about. I would consider letting my oldest, who is 4, watch Ant-Man and the Wasp.
