Middling reception from critics to Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania indicated that Marvel Studios’ Phase 5 is off to a shaky start.After a lackluster Phase 4, much has been made about the significance of Ant-Man 3 as it kicks off Phase 5 of the MCU. Peyton Reed’s latest MCU epic has been described as laying the groundwork for this next era of Marvel Studios storytelling, setting up what is being called an “all-timer antagonist” in Jonathan Majors’ Kang the Conqueror House of MACNAMARA Irish New Shamrock Crest Celtic Aesthetic 3D Polo Design T-Shirt Fans were riding high on the idea of Quantumania getting the franchise back on track after a feeling of waywardness over the last couple of years; however, after middling reactions out of the film’s premiere, that enthusiasm has been slightly dampened.

The negative word-of-mouth surrounding Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania is going to be concerning for fans who were hoping Paul Rudd and co. could get the franchise back on track after the middling Phase 4 House of MACNAMARA Irish New Shamrock Crest Celtic Aesthetic 3D Polo Design T-Shirt However, that does not look like it is the case. So, one has to wonder, is the MCU in trouble? While it doesn’t seem that Quantumania will be the narrative tent-pole some may have thought it would be, it is probably good that if the film is as bad a miss as the reviews are saying, it sits in that “filler episode” category of Marvel project.If it was a tentpole for which the next decade of MCU storytelling stands (like it was teased to be), then there might be a bigger problem. But according to critics, it wasn’t, and now all this does is put added pressure on the rest of the announced MCU slate. This is a franchise that has prided itself on not just an unparalleled narrative tapestry being woven with each title but a fairly consistent level of quality as well. Marvel Studios publicly addressed its mishandling of Phase 4, with a re-evaluation process taking place within the super-powered franchise. The MCU brain trust mentioned bringing in “preventative [measures] to assure quality control” for projects moving forward, but Quantumania was almost surely too far along in the pipeline for it to be a part of this.
