I just caught Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and for the most part I really enjoyed it.
And while I have to shoot a review where I’ll go into greater detail, I did want to mention something I saw on Fatman Beyond.
Mark didn’t particularly like the movie, but his reasons were a bit weird. For instance, much ado was made about whether or not Kang died, which is odd because during the stinger (this is a Marvel movie we’re talking about, after all) which revolved around the Council of Kangs, and one literally said that the variant that we were introduced to in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania was dead.
Mystery solved (not that there was one in the first place, but whatever).
Besides, if literally stating that he was dead weren’t enough, the truth of it is is that whether he lived or died wasn’t all that relevant in that every. Single. Kang were megalomaniacs though since he was just one Kang, as opposed to a stadium full, he was literally the lesser of many evils.
And why does his power set matter, a point which Mark dwelt on quite a bit.
Kang isn’t Superman or Spider-Man, so everything he’s capable of doesn’t need to be explained in detail, especially since this movie serves to introduce viewers to Kang as well as to display how powerful he is (technically the first Kang variant appeared in Loki, the Disney+ series but since not everyone has that streaming channel a lot of people may not know that, which is why it doesn’t necessary matter).
In other words, the exact nature of those powers wasn’t that important – though the idea that those powers emanated from his technology, his suit, is crucial.
As I said, it’s a pretty good movie and one I can’t wait to add to my collection.
