Marvel has been on quite the hit streak. I mean, I didn’t grow up reading comics, so being somewhat of a new Fan Girl, I have now become one of those people that anticipates the next film. I will say though, with the chatter of Ant-Man possibly being the first to disappoint, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Since visiting the set and interviewing Paul Rudd, Judy Greer, and Director Peyton Reed, I was a little worried about the early talk. Well I can put the rumor to rest, for after screening it, I can say in full confidence that Ant-Man continues in that Marvel pool of fantastic films.
Ant-Man: Marvel Does it Again
First of all it’s REALLY funny. Paul Rudd brings magic to the film with his perfect comedic timing with some really great lines. If you found Chris Pratt funny in Guardians of the Galaxy, think that sorta humor. He’s very likable and with a really great storyline, including a relationship he’s working on with his daughter Cassie, played by Abby Ryder Fortson, it’s easy to like his character. But don’t worry, it still is full of the excitement you want and expect from a Marvel film.
Next, let’s talk Michael Douglas. I mean the man is a legend in the world of acting and in this role, he’s really funny as well, keeping the movie entertaining, and scenes with he and Paul are such a treat. Even after all these years, the man has still got it.
Evangeline Lilly not only is just gorgeous on the screen, but she’s another great example in the Marvel world of a strong woman. Something I love to see in films for it’s such a great message for young girls, as well as making this movie appealing to all ages and genders.
Ant-Man is a perfect summer movie for the whole family! Make sure to stay for TWO special clips in the credits. 🙂
