Marvel screened “Ant-Man and The Wasp” for the entertainment media for the first time Friday night, and they seem to have loved it.

The consensus on Twitter is that it’s hilarious, better than the original, and a really good way to follow up “Avengers: Infinity War.”

But for those of you hoping that it’ll tie directly to the wild events of “Infinity War,” it appears at least to those of us who haven’t seen it that, if it does, it does so only tangentially. But people who saw it don’t seem to mind at all — and many are positively effusive about the Peyton Reed-directed follow-up to his 2015 original.

“Perfect comic chaser to the doom and gloom of Infinity War,” said one critic. Another says it’s Marvel’s best sequel since “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”

And, well again, everyone agrees that it’s funny. You’ll see for yourself when it hits theaters on July 6.
