Man, you wanna talk about movies I’ve almost totally erased from my memory, Ant-Man and the Wasp is pretty high on that list. Despite having come out a little over two months ago, I don’t think I could tell you much of anything that happened in that movie.
Thankfully we can all refresh our memories soon when the 20th film in the MCU is released digitally on October 2 and two weeks later on DVD and Blu-ray. To prep for it, Paul Rudd is here to introduce one of the funnier sequences in the film when Scott’s suit malfunctions while at his daughter’s school and he walks around pretending to be a kid.
I don’t know if Ant-Man and the Wasp‘s problems all stem from the fact that it followed on the heels of Infinity War in theaters, but I will be curious to see how well it’s regarded five or ten years from now. Something tells me that then, as now, it will be viewed as a rather minor effort in the overall MCU.

The more I think about Deadpool 2, the more I find myself enjoying its irreverence. Yes, it’s problematic and using Vanessa’s death as a catalyst for Deadpool’s personal growth is a plot device that should’ve died decades ago. However, anytime I think about him butchering dudes to Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5” or the recurring dubstep jokes that grew on me as the film went along, I can’t help but chuckle and admire what they did.
There’s good news today for fans of the film as its star and producer Ryan Reynolds took to Twitter to announce the film’s Blu-ray and Digital release dates, both of which are much sooner than expected. The superhero sequel will be available on all major On Demand services beginning August 7, with the physical media release date following two weeks later on August 21.
There’s also going to be an extended cut of the film, which makes sense considering they were doing reshoots earlier this year and a lot of stuff was probably left on the cutting room floor. Personally, I’m hoping for more of Rob Delaney’s Peter. Dude was the best thing about the movie, and I think we’d all be happy to have more Peter in our lives…
