Ant-Man 3 now has Marvel’s worst Rotten Tomatoes score

Ant-Man 3 – aka Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania – now has the joint worst Rotten Tomatoes score of any movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The new Ant-Man movie hit screens over the weekend, but reviews resulting last week, and they weren’t good, resulting in an initially poor Rotten Tomatoes score. Over the last few days, as more reviews have dropped, Quantumania’s score has also dropped.

We’re not surprised, as the Dexerto review was negative, awarding the film two stars out of a possible five, and stating: “Ant-Man 3 should be the best of the man-ant flicks. The stakes have been raised. The tone tweaked. And a great villain teased. But Quantumania ends up being the worst film in the trilogy, feeling less like a self-contained story, and more like two hours of setting the character of Kang up for future films.

“Trouble is, come the end of the movie, we still don’t have a sense of who Kang is, or what he wants beyond burning stuff down, which completely undermines the third act, and turns a film about time into a giant waste of it.”

Ant-Man 3 has a terrible Rotten Tomatoes score

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania now has a Rotten Tomatoes score of 47%. That is the lowest for any MCU movie ever, alongside Eternals, which is also on 47%.

Which is a long way from where the series started, with Iron Man scoring 94%. And even further away from the top MCU movie, with Black Panther topping the list on a whopping 96%.

Ant-Man 3 kicks off Phase 5 of the MCU, which doesn’t bode well for the future of the franchise. Though it should be noted that the RT score we’re referring to is the ‘Critical Consensus.’ Quantumania’s ‘Audience Score’ is much higher, currently standing at 84%.
