Ant-Man 3 Repercussion

Since the first reviews of the film began to come out, it was already noted that he would not please everyone. On Rotten Tomatoes, the critical approval rating is only 48%.

The film that takes Scott Lang and his family to the Quantum Realm and introduces the villainous Kang, is being touted as just another generic MCU movie, which does not bring innovations nor has a clear purpose. Some say that only the two post-credits scenes have any real value.

It is worth remembering that last year Thor: Love and Thunder It is Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness had already shown significant drops, of 68% and 67% respectively, in their second weekend of collection.

Apparently, interest in superhero movies has been waning. The releases of too many series and films ended up saturating the format, and this is something that Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, has already noticed and is working to improve the situation.

Recently, the studio announced the postponement of The Marvels. The film, which was scheduled for July 2023, has been postponed to November 10 of this year.
