Review – Ant-Man and the Wasp

Ant-Man and the Wasp, directed by Peyton Reed, is the epitome of a plain Marvel movie. This film comes packaged with all the issues that plague the majority of MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) films, only the other films usually have a handful of qualities that still make them memorable or entertaining, whereas Ant-Man and the Wasp has nothing.
