Ant-Man & The Wasp is a Huge Mistake

It's a nice idea, but they're not the heroes Marvel needs right now

I've said it before but it bears repeating: I liked Ant-Man a lot more than I expected to. For a character I had zero emotional investment in, whose history in the comics is less than stellar, and a production that seemed disorganized from the outside, this movie didn't seem like it had a lot going for it. But it ended up being one of the better superhero movies this year. People expected it to flop, and it didn't. It makes sense for Marvel to try and take advantage of this surprise success.
Then again, up against the sh!tshow that was Fantastic Four and the convoluted mess that was Age of Ultron, the odds were actually in Ant-Man's favor. The plot was neither innovative nor impressive, but it was solid (proving that Marvel's predictable formula isn't bad in and of itself).

So: Why is adding a sequel a mistake?

Does Ant-Man have a strong, passionate following?

Not really. People saw the movie because it was fun, and because frankly it sucked less than the other summer action films released this year. It was kid-friendly, and there are plenty of gadgets and costumes that can easily be converted to marketable merchandise, but that's about it.

Does the character contribute to the universe in a meaningful way?

We'll have to wait until Civil War is released to know for sure, but in terms of character... not really. We have plenty of everyman characters already (Sam Wilson, Hawkeye, Colonel Rhodes) so Scott Lang isn't adding a useful perspective in that sense.

Does adding '& The Wasp' to the title compensate for the supreme failure to include any female representation in the Marvel universe?

Short answer: absolutely not.

Marvel is delaying the release of Captain Marvel

(Again).

Just so they can fit a second Ant-Man film into their franchise. And while this will be the first time a female superhero will be getting her name in the title... eh? The first Ant-Man movie really *should* have been Ant-Man & The Wasp. Time and again over the course of the film Hope demonstrated that she was more prepared for the superheroics than Scott. She knew how to use the suit, she didn't need an extensive training montage to prepare, and she had a much more personal stake in the outcome.

Why should we settle for a character that the franchise barely seems to care about, when we could HAVE Captain Marvel?

She's incredibly popular despite extremely limited marketing because even though her solo film is literally years away fans are already excited. This is something we WANT. The Wasp in this last film was a teaser at best. At worst, it felt like everything we want but can't have for some reason was being dangled in front of us. "Oh, look at how cool and confident she is", "look at her suit, she definitely *could* be a superhero", oh wait never mind. This is an Ant-Man movie. So Hope got to sit on the sidelines while Scott took care of all the really dangerous stuff.

The Black Panther movie is getting pushed up.

The official release date is now February 16th, 2018 (It was previously July). Which is nice, but that feels like the only good news here. Marvel is reacting to the wrong things. Ant-Man's success is not a sign that they should pursue the character. It's a sign that they need to do a better job on their ensemble movies. Frankly, they need to be written better. No more half-assed character development, no more confusing plot holes, no more ignoring the previous films in favor of advertising films in the future.
Demands for a larger role for the Wasp are not a sign that they should turn her into Scott Lang's sidekick. It's a sign that fans are so tired of the minimal role of female characters that they're jumping on the most competently written one this year. Scarlet Witch? She seems cool, but we know almost nothing about her because Age of Ultron forgot to give her more character development after establishing that she loves her brother and hates Tony Stark. Black Widow? She was thrilling to watch in Winter Soldier but Age of Ultron might as well have undone all of that work with a ham-fisted romance subplot that managed to be both nonsensical and offensive.

It might sell Halloween costumes, but Ant-Man & The Wasp is no way to keep a franchise running.

I feel like this will be a huge fail.I haven't seen the Ant man yet but I can say with full confidence that I don't believe a sequel is necessary.yeah the first ant man movies was successful.great.now let's move on to bigger and better things.I just can't believe we're still having this conversation in 2015.
@purplem00n23 lol I saw a meme one time that said "its sad when you get a movie that has a talking raccoon in it before you get a movie about a female super hero".
Ughhhh how many times can I hit the like button?? Ngl but that's one of the reasons I didn't go and watch it becuase I'm so tired of getting guy after guy superhero movie and every time we ask for female superhero movies all we get is the "those types of movies don't do well" line. Or when asked about giving Black Widow her own movie its the "oh no she's invaluable and needed" line. *sigh* When will we get the movies we want and deserve???
The Wasp was the original and longest-serving Avengers founder. A movie, if it wants to be faithful to the comics, shouldn't base its characters' exposure to how much or how little of a character the current crop of fans know about him/her. The core fans, the ones that have grown up w/ Marvel history forever, are the core fans that will sustain interest, movie ticket + merchandise sales. More importantly, without them, there'd be no bridge to the next generation of fans. Their opinions should matter most, not those of newbie fans who don't really know what they're talking about.

WHAT COULD I BE TALKING ABOUT? (sorry I so excited ≧◡≦) You: WTF is this!?? Me: It is intended to be the third film in the (pronounced triple X) xXx franchise, and thereby a sequel to both the 2002 film xXx and the 2005 film xXx: State of the Union, though more directly with the first film. You: OK? Why do I need this useless information!?? *Watch video!!!* (if you haven't already ◠‿◠) Me: PLZ!!! Tell me that you saw what I saw!?? ‹•.•› PLz!!! Tell me you saw this child's face in that video too!!! ~(●‿●)~ But wait!!! Don't leave!! I confirmed for you (✿◠‿◠) Is anyone else as excited as I'm!!??? (I highly doubt it cuz when I found out, fortnightly I'm home alone, I had this high pitched squeal scream thing that scared the hell out of my dogs (¤﹏¤) I'm just freaking out making this post, I'm literally shaking too). I even checked he his Instagram and sure enough (link) there it was and I even found some pictures of Him, Vin Diesel (the bald guy for those of you who don't know), and some of the crew. Plus a video of Kris talking about the movie (12:24 long). It is said that the movie will be released January 20, 2017, so mark those calendars ʕ·ᴥ·ʔ Now I know you probably wouldn't be to over excited (or not at all) about this but you have no idea how much this movie means to me. I grew up watching the xXx movies (even though no parent should let their 3-7 year old watch them but that didn't stop my dad from letting me watch it anyway) and the fact that UB and Actors who have been not only are apart of my entire life but are a big inspiration is to me and...its just...I...UHG!! Words can't explain my feels right now (◠﹏◠) you know? OK, I'm done you can go back to your daily lives now (◠‿◠) What are your thoughts about this Movie??

How To Wash Cloth Diapers For The First Time? (Easiest Ways)
Cloth diapers are still a thing to make your baby comfortable in. When you don’t trust all the available diapers on the market, cloth diapers can be your only escape. Also, these are mostly suitable for newborn babies as they are very sensitive to deal with. However, after using the cloth diapers, there comes the washing hassle. So, if you are wondering about how to wash cloth diapers for the first time- you are in the right place. We got you covered with effective and easy ways for different cloth diapers that you will thank us later. In addition, we have shared a lot of tips and additional information to keep your baby healthy with cloth diapers. If you are a new parent hovering around for a true solution, without any further ado, jump right into it! How To Wash Cloth Diapers For The First Time? Washing cloth diapers is no big deal if you know the correct ways. Hereby, we have shared multiple ways for different cloth diapers so you can choose the washing method according to your baby’s diaper material type. Let’s get started! Method-1: For Cotton Prefolds and Cotton Fitted Diapers These are the most commonly used cloth diapers. These diapers will require 3-5 washes before these are completely suitable to use. So if you buy these for the first time, make sure to wash them at least 3 times and dry them properly before you use them. Here is the washing instruction for you: Step-1: put all the diapers inside the washing machine. If you don’t own one, pour plenty of water inside a bucket and put the diapers inside it. Lukewarm water will ensure a better outcome in this case. Step-2: now you have to use detergent, any sort will be usable here. If you want, you can use bleach in case you have microfiber diapers. But do not use any kind of fabric softeners. Step-3: at this phase, wash the diapers like your regular clothes. Step-4: thoroughly clean the diapers and dry those up. After drying, repeat the method 2-3 times more. Method-2: For Hemp or Bamboo Materials When you consider eco-friendly fibers for your child, hemp or bamboo is suitable to pick. These diapers require at least 4 washes to be prepared for use. Here comes the washing instruction if you have these fabric diapers: Step-1: put the diapers inside your washing machine or bucket. Step-2: use any sort of soft detergent, and water. The water can be lukewarm or cold, it depends on the manufacturer’s suggestion of your diaper. Step-3: wash like your regular clothes. Do not use any sort of bleach or fabric softeners here. Method-3: Synthetic Diapers These diapers are the easiest to deal with. You will not need to wash these diapers more than once to make them usable. However, the washing procedure of these diapers is pretty simple to follow as well. But once again, do not try any bleach or fabric softener upon these as well. All you have to do is to use your regular detergent and water to wash these. Afterward, dry these well. The drying procedure may take a while due to the material type, but you can use these right after drying. Method-4: Wool Interlock Fabric Diapers Hot water can damage the wools, so hereby, cold water is your only option to follow here. Let’s see the steps to follow: Step-1: put your diapers into the washing machine as wool diapers are machine washable. Make sure to put the mode into gentle or a wool cycle. In case you are hand washing, use cold water to get the work done. Step- 2: use any soft natural laundry detergent or baby shampoo to wash the diapers. Step-3: rinse them well and dry them. Wool diapers may take longer to dry off, but you can use the diapers after a single wash. Do Cloth Diapers Ruin Your Washing Machine? No, cloth diapers are compatible with machine washing. So if you want to lessen your effort and do not want to undergo hand-washing hassle, make the best use of your washing machine. However, keep your diapers separate that are made of different materials. For instance, wool diapers do not tolerate warm water, be careful about that. Also, if the diapers are not new, they might have poop or pee stuck inside. In that case, keep them separate and wash according to necessity. It is better not to wash the poop-covered diapers in the washing machine with other laundry stuff. Should I Soak Cloth Diapers Before Washing? Yes, you can soak your cloth diapers before you wash them. Even though modern diapers do not require soaking before washing, you can do it if you want to. It’s better to use warm water to do the soaking process. But in the case of wool diapers, use only cold water to soak the diapers. Is It OK To Soak Cloth Diapers Overnight? It is not a problem at all. You can soak the diapers in the water for as long as you want, even overnight. But pre-soaking the diapers for 45 minutes before washing will be fine as well. If you are in a hurry, you don’t have to wait for hours to pre-soak the diapers as it is not a necessity. Wrapping Up You cannot just use the cloth diapers right after purchasing. It is bad for your baby and may create a lot of complications including bacterial infection and rashes. So you have to be very careful about washing the diapers before you use them. Now that you know how to wash cloth diapers for the first time, hopefully, there is not any problem to face. We have given in-depth information and individual washing procedures to follow for different fabric diapers. Follow wisely and do not forget to wash cotton and synthetic diapers at least 3-4 times before you use those. Again, avoid using any sort of bleach or fabric softener while washing the diapers as they can ruin the material and cause irritation in your baby’s skin if not washed well.

Katherine Langford
Katherine Langford (born 29 April 1996) is an Australian actress. She is known for starring as Hannah Baker in the 2017 Netflix series 13 Reasons Why (2017), based on the novel of the same name, for which she received a Golden Globe Award nomination. In 2018, she appeared as Leah Burke in the romantic comedy-drama film Love, Simon (2018). Early life Langford was born in Perth and raised in Perth, Western Australia. She is the eldest daughter of Elizabeth Langford, a pediatrician, and Stephen Langford, a flying doctor and director of medical services at the Royal Flying Doctor Service Western Operations. She began voice lessons in 2005, and received classical, jazz, and contemporary vocal training. She was offered a place at Perth Modern School for her senior high years, where she studied music and drama, and was sports captain and a nationally ranked swimmer. Katherine Langford – “Le Defile L’Oreal Paris 2021” : Runway – Paris Fashion Week Initially during her time at high school, Langford was interested in medicine and politics, in addition to musical theatre. However, in 2012, when Langford was 16, she attended Lady Gaga’s concert, the Born This Way Ball, which inspired her to learn how to play the piano. She shared video of herself singing three original songs she wrote: “I’ve Got a Crush on Zoe Bosch,” “Young and Stupid,” and “3 Words.” “Young and Stupid” is an anti-suicide song she wrote in 2013 after three Perth teens took their lives. For her final year at Perth Modern, Langford stopped swimming and switched her focus to music and performance. She was successful in a number of musical eisteddfods and drama competitions. Langford appeared in the school’s production of Hotel Sorrento in 2013 and graduated that same year. After graduating high school, Langford was determined to become an actor. However, she was rejected from every acting school she applied to, on the grounds she was too young and did not have enough life experience. This led her to begin enrolling in acting classes and workshops in Perth, juggling three part-time jobs, and later finding herself an agent. From 2014 to 2015, Langford studied at the Principal Academy of Dance & Theatre Arts, majoring in Music Theatre, and appeared in a production of Godspell. She was then one of five selected to participate in the National Institute of Dramatic Arts Advanced Actors Residency in 2015. In the same year, she trained at Nicholson’s Academy of Screen Acting and portrayed the role of Juan Perón’s mistress in the 2015 production of Evita. Langford was offered a position in the Bachelor of Arts program in Acting at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts and intended to begin studies in 2016. However, she never enrolled and instead pursued professional roles. Career Langford appeared as the lead character in a small independent short film, Daughter (2016) which debuted at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. At the end of 2016, after declining the offer from Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, Langford auditioned and was asked to test for Riverdale, and Will, a television series centered on the young life of William Shakespeare. She did not get either role, which were instead given to Lili Reinhart, and Olivia DeJonge. Langford auditioned for the role in the mystery teen drama TV series 13 Reasons Why over Skype and had only 10 days to get an O-1 visa as she had not worked in the United States before. She has received critical acclaim for her portrayal of the American high school student Hannah Baker in 13 Reasons Why. Langford researched the role, speaking with a representative of the sexual assault awareness campaign “It’s On Us” and a psychiatrist who specializes in adolescence. In December 2016, she signed with the William Morris Endeavor agency. In 2018 Langford appeared in her first feature film, Love, Simon, an adaptation of the coming-of-age novel Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, by Becky Albertalli. Katherine Langford – ‘Knives Out’ European Premiere In 2019, Langford co-starred in Knives Out, a murder mystery film. The ensemble cast received critical acclaim, and she was part of various awards and nominations for the role, which included a Critics’ Choice Award nomination for Best Cast. In 2020, she starred in the film Spontaneous, a well-reviewed, dark comedy for which she received a Critics’ Choice Super Awards nomination for Best Actress in a Science Fiction/Fantasy Movie. On 12 September 2018, it was announced that Langford had been cast in the web television series Cursed. Set in an re-imagined Arthurian world, Langford portrays Nimue, a teenage girl destined to become the Lady of the Lake. It premiered on Netflix in July 2020.
