As many of you know, I was a HUGE fan of the first Ant-Man film. It came as a surprise to myself as well, as it offered a different kind of film. A superhero film with the elements of a heist movie. The world wasn't in immediate danger and there wasn't a giant blue laser shooting into the sky. It was funny, smart and refreshing. Marvel obviously thought so as well, as they started to incorporate comedy into more and more of their films, most notably Thor: Ragnarok.

Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) is back as Ant-Man, although not officially at the start as they follow up on the events of Captain America: Civil War. Yo might recall that he was captured after the airport battle and place in the maximum security facility known as "The Raft.' At the end of that film, Steve Rogers busts in to rescue everyone, but Scott opts to stay behind as he has his daughter to think of. Due to an agreement between the German government and the Department of Homeland Security, he has been returned to American soil but is on house arrest under FBI jurisdiction for two years under the strict order that he not have any contact with and of the rogue Avengers or Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), who created the Ant-Man suit. Hank and his daughter Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lily) are also on the run from the government thanks to Scott who, it turns out, stole the Ant-Man suit from them to help Cap and friends in Civil War. While on house arrest, he has a vision of when he was shrunk down in the Quantum Realm and sees a clue to the fate of Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) and calls Hank and Hope. A new villain who can phase through matter appears on the scene intent on stealing Hank Pym's latest research and more.

I don't want to give away too much more. Hopefully that was enough to interest everyone. I saw it in both 3D and 2D and loved it on both viewings. It answers several questions posed in Avengers: Infinity War, mainly where Ant-Man was while those events were happening. I initially saw it in 3D as I knew that the Quantum Realm effects would be dope-tastic and I was not disappointed.

If you enjoyed the first Ant-Man and Infinity War, I'm confident you will love this.
