In the world of cinema, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has been a dominant force for over a decade, with numerous hit movies and a massive fan base.
However, not every film in the MCU has been a critical success, and the recently announced "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" is already receiving some early bad reviews.
Critics are questioning the direction of the film, whether the cast will be able to carry it, and whether the director can balance the film's comedic tone with the serious implications of exploring the quantum realm.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has been entertaining audiences for over a decade with its interwoven storylines, epic battles, and lovable characters. But not every Marvel film has been a hit, and the recently announced "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" has already received some early criticism.
"Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" will see the return of Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, the shrinking superhero known as Ant-Man, and Evangeline Lilly as Hope van Dyne, the Wasp. The film is set to explore the quantum realm in more detail, which was first introduced in the original "Ant-Man" movie.
The most recent installment, "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania," has received its second-ever Rotten review score on Rotten Tomatoes, a popular review aggregation website.
The film, which is set to be released later this year, has received mixed reviews from critics, with some praising its humor and action, while others have criticized its plot and pacing.
However, the most notable criticism comes from the review by "The Daily Beast" which gave the film a 36% score, the second-ever Rotten score for a Marvel movie. The only other Marvel film to receive a Rotten score was "Thor: The Dark World," which received a 67% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
While one negative review does not necessarily mean that the film will be a critical or commercial failure, it does raise some concerns for fans of the MCU. "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" is the third film in the "Ant-Man" franchise, and it is set to explore the quantum realm even further than its predecessors.
The film will also introduce a new villain, Kang the Conqueror, played by Jonathan Majors, who has already received critical acclaim for his performances in other movies and TV shows.
While some fans are excited to delve deeper into this mysterious and intriguing concept, others are skeptical about the direction the film is taking. After all, the quantum realm has already played a significant role in the MCU, with the likes of "Doctor Strange" and "Avengers: Endgame" exploring its potential.
One of the strengths of the "Ant-Man" franchise has been its excellent cast, and "Quantumania" is no exception. Along with Rudd and Lilly, the film will also see the return of Michael Douglas as Hank Pym and Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet van Dyne.
In addition, Kathryn Newton has been cast as Cassie Lang, Scott's daughter, and Jonathan Majors will play the villainous Kang the Conqueror, a character with ties to the Fantastic Four.
While the cast is impressive, some critics argue that the film is simply trying to cram too many characters into one storyline, which could ultimately weaken the impact of each individual character.
"Quantumania" will be directed by Peyton Reed, who also helmed the first two "Ant-Man" films. Reed has a proven track record when it comes to directing Marvel movies, and his comedic sensibilities have been a good fit for the lighthearted tone of the "Ant-Man" franchise.
However, some detractors argue that Reed's style is becoming stale and that "Quantumania" may suffer from a lack of fresh ideas and innovation.
Despite the mixed reviews, many fans are still excited to see "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania," and are eager to see how the film fits into the larger narrative of the MCU. The film is set to be released in theaters in July 2023, and it remains to be seen how it will be received by audiences and critics alike.
So, is "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" really the worst Marvel film yet? While it's too early to say for sure, it's clear that the film has its fair share of critics and skeptics.
Ultimately, whether or not the film is a success will depend on a variety of factors, including the strength of the script, the chemistry of the cast, and the vision of the director. Only time will tell if "Quantumania" lives up to the high standards set by the rest of the MCU.
