I just realised this thread discussion is still open. Anyone still interested in discussing MCU movies in here? I can't believe the thread has been dead for 8 months or so.

I have just returned to these forums this week so not sure if there are many conversations in off-topic, I like the one stop option for all my MCU rather than visiting multiple threads.

I'm personally quite sad to see Ant-Man and the Wasp making so little money (compared to other MCU films). I thought it was a fun and enjoyable romp with just a few minor complaints. I know it was a humour based film but I felt a few scenes could have worked better if they played them straight.

I haven't had a chance to see it yet but I am curious; is it set at or around the time of IW?

I'm interested in seeing it, but was told it takes place before IW. No way I am paying for theater food and tickets to see anything that predates IW at the current time. No matter how good the film is, I know I will be disappointed unless the story advances where IW left off.

The movie is set before Infinity War, it's a pretty self contained film, lots of fun. If you are worried about Infinity War spoilers make sure you leave as soon as the credits role.

Do you think you'll be disappointed just because the story doesn't advance the overall plot further? If you enjoyed the characters of the first film I think it is still worth seeing at the cinemas, just remind yourself that it isn't related to Infinity War. Will you be skipping Captain Marvel as well?

Yeah, I’ll be skipping all until the IW sequel. But not skipping altogether, just not paying to see in a theater. I’d rather just watch at home after it hits on demand. I have enjoyed pretty much all the movies, but I know myself and that I’ll be let down getting no advancement if I pay 80 for a movie and food for family that doesn’t advance the overall plot.

I saw it tonight. Pretty standard Marvel stuff, but enjoyable. It’s probably best to watch it prior to Endgame since a few things will tie in.
