The first reactions for Ant-Man and the Wasp are rolling in on Twitter after the red carpet premiere, and the critics are hyped about it. So far there have been very few negative reactions to the movie; people just want to talk about how funny Paul Rudd is.
Many are saying that this is one of Marvel’s best sequels, and some have even said it rivals Winter Soldier although clearly the tones of those two movies are very different. This movie is supposedly very fun and a little bit strange. Many are crediting the uniqueness of the concept to director Peyton Reed. Reed also directed the first Ant-Man and both movies have been praised for their blend of comedy and the action.
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

The reaction from critics has been resoundingly positive, with one of the most negative comments coming from John Campea who tweeted, “Everyone seemed to love it. I liked it, but not as much as the first one.” It seems like even the critics don’t have much criticism for this sequel.
I have emerged from #AntManAndTheWasp and bring good news. This movie is a total blast. Liked it more than the original (which I dug). It’s remains self-contained in the crazy MCU of it all, which is a good thing. Doesn’t ignore its connections to that world, though.

A lot of people are commenting on the end credit scene, which raises the question, is it so great because it’s funny? Revealing? Teasing? All three? I guess we’ll have to see it to find out. Ant-Man and the Wasp will have its general release July 6 and after these tweets, I think it’s safe to say that expectations are high.
