Last night was the premiere of Ant-Man & The Wasp, which means we've got early opinions from critics, ascended fans and anyone else lucky enough to get into the early showing. And he early verdict is very promising.

People are praising the movie for being funny, relatively self-contained and a wonderful light romp, which is a pretty nice counterpoint to the grimdark tragedy of Infinity War.
Just finished #AntManandTheWasp it’s funny AF, great fight scenes and the special FX are off the chain.

Ant-Man & The Wasp is crazy fun. Very self-contained, but brimming with energy, and full of cool and creative surprises. Super funny, and the entire cast is wonderful. I had a blast! pic.twitter.com/2lCeUGvzHW

Had a blast watching #AntManandtheWasp. It’s super funny, which is its greatest charm. Very personal, small scale story (again) and definitely focused on being light and family friendly. Evangeline Lilly is a badass, and Scott’s daughter Cassie steals the show. Also, ants ???? pic.twitter.com/PMAZf94gGa

WOW! #AntManAndTheWasp is a total delight! Funny, inventive, smart and full of great, irresistible energy! The cast is perfect, especially @EvangelineLilly , and the new characters fit in seamlessly. It's got huge stakes, but never loses its smirk or the BIG heart at its center.

I always have some nitpicky, snarky crap to say and I’m coming up empty with #AntManAndTheWasp. It’s a darn blast. I laughed SO much and... pshttt... where there’s a good man, there’s an even better woman ???? pic.twitter.com/nM5aOgkHdz

I loved #AntManAndTheWasp. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so much in a Marvel movie, though Ragnarok is up there. Nice change of pace from Infinity War. The emsemble is perfect!

Ant-Man and The Wasp is strong on the humor, amazing on the visual effects, creative in size manipulation, and clever in its "villains." Great movie.

ANT-MAN AND THE WASP is probably the closest Marvel will ever get to #nicecore. there’s no villain! just... mild impediments. And teamwork! I love teamwork.
everyone says “quantum” a lot, and then they joke *about* how everyone says “quantum” a lot. fun, funny, and forgettable.

What a year for Marvel! Absolutely loved #AntManAndTheWasp. Stellar ensemble and the humor is spot on. (Laughed myself to tears during one sequence!) The tech is used to great effect yet again. Unique, highly entertaining ride I can’t wait to go on again.

#AntManAndTheWasp is cool and all, but the end credit scene is the best part of the whole film and the only thing I can think about right now.

Dug the heck out of #AntManAndTheWasp. Clever and charming with lots of heart. It’s a bit exposition heavy, but otherwise a damn delight. One gag had me laughing so hard I was in tears and the post-credits scene is easily one of Marvel’s best.

Early responses are usually a bit biased toward the positive, so keep that in mind. Regardless, there are some arguments that are without reproach.
Ten minutes into #AntManAndTheWasp Paul Rudd sings karaoke so yeah you better believe it’s my favorite movie of the year
