With each Marvel movie, they each strike a different tone, most have a somewhat serious tone with some comedic elements. But recently with films like Thor Ragnarok and Ant-Man and The Wasp, they’re more lighthearted and comedic than other MCU films.

Here’s the official synopsis for Ant-Man and The Wasp:

From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes Ant-Man and The Wasp a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink. In the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a Super Hero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside The Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from the past.

The film is action-packed, fun to watch and includes lots of details especially in the scenes where Ant-Man shrinks down. Even though a lot of this film was made in front of green screens, you can really see all the time and effort that went into creating these computer-generated backdrops.

The Ant-Man and The Wasp Blu-ray has a good amount of extras, you have the usual array of deleted scenes (of which there is only two) and a gag reel and outtakes. There is also a few making-of featurettes such as:

  • Back in the Ant Suit: Scott Lang – Hero and all-star dad Scott Lang keeps the laughs coming for the audience, cast and crew.
  • A Suit of Her Own: The Wasp – Highly trained Hope Van Dyne is now the Wasp. See how some of her craziest stunts and action-packed scenes were brought to life.
  • Subatomic Super Heroes: Hank & Janet – Hank Pym’s wife Janet was lost in the quantum realm. Trace the legacy of these characters and the iconic actors who portray them.
  • Quantum Perspective: The VFX and Production Design of “Ant-Man and The Wasp” – Explore the movie’s visual effects and production design from a whole new viewpoint, in which every micro and macro detail counts.

If you get the Digital version of Ant-Man and The Wasp, it includes two exclusives, one is about the art of the Marvel Cinematic Universe which basically gives viewers an inside look on “ the role concept artists play in bringing Super Heroes from comic book to screen.”

The other digital exclusive is called Online Close-Up Magic University, which is a “commercial will inspire you to expand your mind and maximize your full potential!”

Final Thoughts

Ant-Man and The Wasp is a great addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe that is a breath of fresh air compared to the more serious tones of Avengers: Infinity War. My only gripe is that the Blu-ray doesn’t come with that many bonus features and the doesn’t come with a DVD copy in the combo pack.

Pros

  • Fun to watch film that will make you laugh
  • Action-packed
  • Great visual

Cons

  • Severely lacking in bonus features
  • No DVD included in the Blu-ray combo pack
