If all goes well on the load shedding front, you’d be able to watch Ant-Man And The Wasp on Sunday, on M-Net Channel 101 at 20:05.

If you haven’t seen it yet, it simply has to go on your watch list, especially after the events of Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War left us all without hope for the future.

Avengers: Endgame is hitting the cinemas on 26 April and we need to be prepared. I’ve included a list of all the films to watch before D-Day arrives. Or is it A-Day?

Best quote from Ant-Man And The Wasp:

Hold on, you gave her wings?!

Scott Lang

Ant-Man And The Wasp Plot

Scott Lang is grappling with the consequences of his choices as both a superhero and a father. Approached by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym, Lang must once again don the Ant-Man suit and fight alongside the Wasp. The urgent mission soon leads to secret revelations from the past as the dynamic duo finds itself in an epic battle against a powerful new enemy.

Reviews

The critics were a bit more positive about this one, except for Dan Jolin from Empire who said it “undeniably lacks the scale and ambition of recent Marvel entries.

Sandie Angula Chen from Common Sense Media said it’s “comparatively light-hearted and optimistic,” and provides the “laughs Marvel fans may well be craving after the heartbreaking intensity of Infinity War.” Molly Freeman from Screen Rant said:

Ant-Man and the Wasp is a hilarious return to the shrinking heroes, but with elevated action and a heartfelt story, it’s a well-rounded Marvel sequel.
