Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania screenwriter Jeff Loveness has been chatting about the initial response to his first Marvel feature.
The story of the latest Marvel film, Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania, has been a mixed one. Some really like the film, some don’t. Lots went to see it on its opening weekend. Fewer went to see it on its second weekend. Marvel still has a massive hit on its hands.
However, there’s been blowback on this particular feature, and some of the less impressive reviews for a Marvel feature. One of the people reading them was the film’s screenwriter, Jeff Loveness. And he’s been confessing to The Daily Beast that “those reviews took me by surprise”, and let him in “a pretty low spot”.
He knew they weren’t good, but also, he knew that he was proud of his work on the film, his Marvel debut.
He decided to head off to watch the movie on its opening weekend, and saw the much stronger audience reactions. That put things into perspective, and as he added, “I’m pretty happy with it overall, and I think I learned how to take a punch this week. And now that I learned that it’s not too bad, I can just get on with making things”.
Which sounds like a fine plan. You can read the full piece with Loveness at The Daily Beast, here.
