Antman and the Wasp
Antman is the best Marvel movie to watch on Netflix.

But we really don’t mind as long as they find a vent to preventing the inevitable: earth’s total destruction.
Actions in all four movies are very thick, compared to Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man and the Wasp. This one is quite light.
Following its predecessor Antman in 2015, this one coughs up plenty of intriguing moments and tries not to be bland or coated with too much humor thanks to Ant-Man.

He is unmatched even against the first Avengers like Iron Man, Black Widow, Thor, Powerful Hulk.
Hurray! It means more great MCU movies in the near future. We highly recommend this movie as it’s one of the best movies to watch on Netflix.
