The social media reactions to Ant-man and the Wasp: Quantumania are very strong. So far it seems like there’s a lot of love for the third Ant-Man movie and definitely a lot of love for the crazy plot and Jonathan Majors as Kang. As always, those outlets and critics who have had the chance to see the movie already have two embargo dates. One, for social media reactions, which cannot include any spoilers or grades, ergo, this. Then there’s a review embargo where you can do anything you like, i.e. spoiler reviews and grades.
So after trawling through Twitter reading any I can find, here are a selection of social media reactions to Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania from many names you’ve heard of. Just remember you’re only getting a small flavor of what these people thought of the movie, but there does appear to be plenty of positivity. We shall start with a very bold claim indeed and work our way downwards.
Peyton Reed’s #AntManAndTheWaspQuantumania is the best MCU has delivered since #AvengersEndgame
The film is a psychedelic roller coaster through the quantum realm that delivers moments of laughs, tears, bone crunching action and heart as the film raises the stakes pic.twitter.com/CthkkMmaQj

KANG is the best comic book movie villain EVER. Jonathan Majors will be nominated for Best Supporting Actor at Oscars 2024, with a very solid chance of winning. His performance is LEGENDARY. He truly is a conqueror.

ANT-MAN AND THE WASP QUANTUMANIA is a VISUAL FEAST packed w/ SURPRISES (big & small). A WILD RIDE from start to finish.

Definitely make sure you stay for the credits because there are significant things to 👀👀. I really dug how #AntManAndTheWaspQuantumania is both a Part 1 of Phase 5, but also a self-contained #AntMan story that’s funny & sweet & features a kick-ass Michelle Pfeiffer. Good stuff pic.twitter.com/iacKNVb9A6

Marvel’s #AntManAndTheWaspQuantumania is a strong start to Phase 5. I now understand why it’s called #Quantumania. JonathanMajors is excellent as Kang and cannot wait to see where this all goes. 2 after the credits scenes and both are very good. pic.twitter.com/62Ch3w2O5N

The best Star Wars movie since 2018 is #AntManAndTheWaspQuantumania. It’s a huge sci-fi adventure with gorgeous world building that feels almost little un-Marvel in how much world building there is. But it’s got humor, heart, Kang completely rules & Michelle Pfeiffer steals it. pic.twitter.com/vRO2Poko2s

What’s that, you want to see some that were less enthusiastic to compare? I got you, though I will say these were harder to come by than usual. Though, that’s not to say there were a mere handful. I skipped a few negative posts that didn’t give any reasons why they didn’t like it. If someone posted, ‘skip this movie, it sucks’, I ignored it. I personally think back to being taught in school. If you are going to criticize a work, you better explain well and know what you’re talking about. If someone didn’t take the time to do that, their opinion means little to me.
Here are some less than enthusiastic takes which take time to explain where they had some issues.

#AntManAndTheWaspQuantumania is a solid, yet overly ambitious start to the next phase of the MCU. Jonathan Majors is an absolute FORCE as #Kang and the NEW KING of the Multiverse. The final battle is ASTONISHING, but I really missed the comedic charm throughout. #AntMan pic.twitter.com/NRj3fzjCKa

After a frustratingly rough act 1, #AntManAndTheWaspQuantumania finally gets going, only to end where this story should’ve began. While the external stakes are clear & weighty, emotional drive felt slight (and levity even lighter). That said, Jonathan Majors rules. pic.twitter.com/qpZeKTgdUd

#AntManAndTheWaspQuantumania has way too much going on — it’s tough to connect emotionally to any of it. Jonathan Majors’ Kang is a charismatic, intense baddy and visually awesome, but the threat he represents is too abstract. Review @CNET on Feb. 14. pic.twitter.com/42bDJobRgc

#AntManAndTheWaspQuantumania is a lot of things: loud, super-sized, and constantly dialed up to 11. Too bad so little of it feels new, visually creative, or, uh, just plain interesting. Not even Jonathan Majors can save this hollow, repetitive exercise in WeIrD sTuFf HaPpEnNiNg

So there you have it folks. Keep an eye on social media as I guess there will be more and more of these popping up over the next 24 hours. As you likely already know, February 14th is the review embargo, so that’s when we’ll start to know more about how the movie is being received critically.
