'Ant-Man and the Wasp' Rotten Tomatoes Score Released

Marvel has a good track record when it comes to Rotten Tomatoes scores, and it looks like Ant-Man and The Wasp is not going to break that streak.

The anticipated Marvel film just debuted on the popular review aggregate, scoring a 91% on the Tomatometer. The Average rating stands at 7.1 out of 10, with the total reviews counted standing at 53. 49 of those were fresh while only 4 were rotten.

The film currently stands at 99% in the want to see category, and reviewers seem to be pretty happy with Marvel's latest. Overall many cited the film's humor and stylized action as high points, while the film's depth had some not as entertained. That 91% will obviously fluctuate a bit as more reviews come in, so it will be interesting to see if that goes up or down over the next few days.

The first Ant-Man was well reviewed as well, and though it was one of the lower-charting Marvel Studios films, it still did quite well, bringing in $180 million domestically and adding another $339 million overseas for a worldwide total of $519 million. At the moment Ant-Man and The Wasp is tracking to hit around $75 million in its opening weekend, which would best the original's $57 million.

Ant-Man and The Wasp stars Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Evangeline Lilly (Wasp), Michael Douglas (Hank Pym), Michelle Pfeiffer (Janet Van Dyne), Hannah John-Kamen (Ghost), Michael Pena (Luis), Laurence Fishburne (Dr. Bill Foster), Walton Goggins (Sonny Burch), Bobby Cannavale (Paxton), Judy Greer (Maggie), and T.I. (Dave).
