Under the massive shadow of Marvel‘s two exponentially successful films, Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp has some serious shoes to fill. After the first fan viewings of the film, reactions began hurdling in via Twitter, and, in a happy turn of events, every one seemed to be impressed with the film.
People are raving about both the fun and funny aspect of the film, especially compared to the recent heavy-hitters, as well as the “dynamic action of the caper” according to CBR.
People are also off their rockers about how much they love Evangeline Lilly as the Wasp (or Hope van Dyne). She seems to be the type of female hero everyone has been looking for.
Here are some tweets reacting to the film:
Dug the heck out of #AntManAndTheWasp. Clever and charming with lots of heart. It’s a bit exposition heavy, but otherwise a damn delight. One gag had me laughing so hard I was in tears and the post-credits scene is easily one of Marvel’s best.

What a year for Marvel! Absolutely loved #AntManAndTheWasp. Stellar ensemble and the humor is spot on. (Laughed myself to tears during one sequence!) The tech is used to great effect yet again. Unique, highly entertaining ride I can’t wait to go on again.

Had a blast watching #AntManandtheWasp. It’s super funny, which is its greatest charm. Very personal, small scale story (again) and definitely focused on being light and family friendly. Evangeline Lilly is a badass, and Scott’s daughter Cassie steals the show. Also, ants 🐜 pic.twitter.com/PMAZf94gGa

Ant-Man is my favorite Marvel movie. This is the sequel I'd been hoping for. I was grinning from ear to ear from start to finish. Irresistibly good fun. As exciting as it is funny, it locks along nicely and it's visually stunning! #antmanandthewasp pic.twitter.com/7tLSv84ujb
