Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania trailer introduces Kang

Ever since he moved out of HBO’s Lovecraft Country, Jonathan Majors has been having a moment. He’s clearly one of the emerging stars in Hollywood with starring turns in the upcoming Devotion and Creed III. And Majors has already made his Marvel Studios debut as He Who Remains, a variant of Kang the Conqueror who appeared in the first-season finale of Loki. Next year, Kang gets his close-up in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania as a warm-up to his showdown with the Avengers in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. Consequently, Majors has a very memorable appearance in the first trailer for Quantumania. He may even be Scott Lang’s only hope of getting home.

Paul Rudd is once again reprising his role as Scott/Ant-Man, and Marvel’s littlest hero may be getting a big head. While it’s true that Scott helped restore half the universe in Avengers: Endgame, he seems happy to ride that glory for as long as possible, much to the annoyance of his family. Unfortunately for the extended Lang and Pym clans, that means they are on a one-way trip to the Quantum Realm itself.

Michelle Pfeiffer’s Janet van Dyne was rescued from the Quantum Realm in Ant-Man and the Wasp, and that experience will surely come in handy here. But Kang isn’t the only threat awaiting this family of superheroes. And that’s why Scott may be seriously considering Kang’s offer, no matter what it costs him.

Evangeline Lilly is also reprising her role as Hope van Dyne, the second Wasp, alongside Michael Douglas as her onscreen father, Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man. Kathryn Newton is taking over the role Scott’s daughter, Cassie Lang, while Randall Park is back as FBI agent Jimmy Woo.

Peyton Reed is directing the third film in the franchise, which was written by Jeff Loveness. Marvel will release Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania on Friday, February 17, 2023.

Why you should watch The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on Netflix
Andrew Garfield in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2."

This month, Netflix has welcomed The Amazing Spider-Man 2 back to its lineup, and it has quickly become one of the most popular movies on Netflix. That makes this the perfect opportunity to tell you why you should watch The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on Netflix.

Now, we would never argue that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is the best Spider-Man film or even a great one. It's got a lot of problems, including a truly grotesque Green Goblin design, a very unconvincing performance by Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn, and a take on Electro (Jamie Foxx) that feels like it was lifted directly from Batman Forever. This film also tries so hard to set up an MCU-style Spider-Man universe that it wildly underperformed at the box office and led Sony Pictures to partner directly with Marvel Studios for the Tom Holland-led Spider-Man flicks.

The 10 most popular movies of 2023
Margot Robbie looks through a mirrorless mirror in Barbie.

The COVID-19 pandemic greatly affected the box office, to the point where many doubted it would ever return to the levels achieved pre-2020. However, 2023 has proven that audiences are ready to return to the movie theater. Yes, the movies are back, with the domestic box office exploding thanks to juggernauts like The Super Mario Bros. Movie and the Barbenheimer phenomenon.

We are halfway through 2023, and most of the year's biggest releases have already come out. Bar a few promising films like the usual Marvel and DC fare, Denis Villeneuve's sci-fi blockbuster Dune: Part Two, and (possibly) Paul King's holiday musical Wonka, chances are the films currently in the domestic Top 10 are probably the same ones we'll see at the end of the year. So what are the films that dominated the year's domestic box office? From long-running franchises to new and promising IPs and even a few auteur efforts, the most popular films of 2023 are a healthy mix of everything.

7 most disappointing 2023 movies so far
The cast of Shazam! Fury of the Gods.

We are halfway through 2023, and it's been a great year for cinema. The one-two-punch of Barbie and Oppenheimer did wonders for the box office, reminding audiences of the magic of cinema and bringing them back to the movie theaters in floods. Still, not everything has been perfect. For every Barbenheimer, there's a Shazam! Fury of the Gods.

These films aren't necessarily bad, but they are disappointing. Whether because of their lazy plots, uninspired choices, questionable acting, or a combination of all these factors, these movies didn't live up to audiences' lofty expectations. And it's a shame because some had everything they needed to go all the way, but alas, they ended up being bitter disappointments.
