Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is now the joint worst-rated MCU film

Eternals previously held the record for the lowest-rated MCU film but will now share that record with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

Only a few days into its release, Marvel’s newest flick, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, has set a record the studio will have hardly desired. Ant-Man 3 has garnered a meager 47% rating on the Tomatometer, to tie the 2021 MCU film, Eternals.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania has tied 2021's Eternals as the worst-rated Marvel film ever.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is, however, performing better with audiences. The film grossed over $225 million at the box office during its opening weekend, which shows wide acceptance. Also, the film has garnered an 84% rating from over 5,000 verified reviewers. While the film’s critics’ rating is tied with that of Eternals, its audience rating is much better as Eternals only managed a 77% audience score from over 10,000 verified audience members.

Since Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania only recently premiered, there is a chance that its critic ratings can improve as more add their voices to the mix and provide their own ratings in the coming days. Besides, the film’s audience acceptance bodes well, as it suggests many people truly enjoyed it. However, the reverse could also be the case as new critics could review it negatively thereby further tanking its ratings.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is the first film of Marvel’s Phase 5 alongside The Marvels, Thunderbolts, and Captain America: New World Order. It is the 31st film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and its 47% critics rating puts it almost 50% behind the best-rated film in the franchise, Black Panther, which scored 96% from critics.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania introduces Kang the Conqueror, a villain that is reportedly worse than Thanos.

Despite the lack of critical success, Marvel Studios seem convinced about the importance of Ant-Man in the MCU. During a recent interview, Broussard revealed that they are currently discussing the possibility of another installment. Given the film’s performance at the box office, the studio might very well decide to forge ahead and make Ant-Man 4 regardless of the critics’ verdict.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is currently showing in cinemas all around the world.
