We’ve had some pretty funny movies in the MCU… some hilarious ones actually. But was Ant-Man and the Wasp the funniest? Spoilers Ahead!

Okay, I know that humor is subjective, but to me, Ant-Man and the Wasp just might take the cake for the funniest MCU movie ever created. It was non-stop!

The movie fired on all cylinders as far as comedy is concerned. In fact, I’m not sure if a funnier group of actors has ever been assembled in the history of superhero movies… and I’ll say it  — all movies!

It wasn’t just Paul Rudd and Michael Peña provoking laughter — everyone was on the same page! It was one of those special movies where there was a clear comedic direction and everything just clicked.

From Walton Goggins’ ridiculously consistent and hilarious disruptions accompanied by henchmen to Luis’ (Michael Peña) Ex-Con Services business with Kurt (David Dastmalchian) and Dave (T.I.) to Paxon’s (Bobby Cannavale) group hugs — everything combined for the best laughs I’ve ever had during a movie.

And I have to give a special nod to Walton Goggins. There hasn’t been a more funny mob boss ever in the history of cinema. His timing, voice inflections, gestures, and incredible arc from his opening intimidating scenes to a hilarious turnaround just can’t be topped.

What I’m trying to say is — if you need some comic relief, this is the movie to see. There have been a lot of hilarious MCU movies, but this one deserves a special place amongst the best of them.
