Other critics who were in attendance said that Villanious Kang the Conqueror simply stole the show.

Pleased Critics are indicators of big numbers at the box office, so the oceans of praise that the film has been getting is a great start for the franchise and the studio. 

Buzzfeed's Nora Dominick praised Majors for his "chilling" performance. "I love the complexity he brings to Kang with literally a single look," she continued. "MCU really won with this casting." She wrote.

"We wanted to kick off Phase 5 with Ant-Man because he'd earned that position," he said. "To not simply be the back-up or the comic relief, but to take his position at the front of the podium of the MCU."

The movie is directed by Bill Murray and also William Jackson Harper who are both making their Marvel debut. The world can't wait to find out what the Quantum Realm has in store for us. Here's the official synopsis of Ant-Man and The Wasp Quantumania.
