ANT-MAN AND THE WASP - Ranking The New And Returning Lead Characters From Worst To Best - <font color=red>SPOILERS</font>

Ant-Man and The Wasp is now playing in theaters and we're taking a closer look at the sequel's new and returning characters, ranking them from worst to best in the process. Do you agree? Find out here...

Ant-Man and The Wasp is a fun sequel to one of Marvel Studios' most underrated releases and as well as bringing back plenty of fan-favourite characters, the movie puts the spotlight on some newcomers as well. However, while some of these heroes and villains are given the chance to shine, others sadly fall by the wayside or fail to make a significant enough impact to leave you wanting more of them. 

What we're looking at here then is all of the movie's main characters and ranking them from worst to best. Taking into account everything from the amount of screentime they received to just how memorable their roles in Ant-Man and The Wasp were, we think you'll find this list makes for very interesting reading. So to take a look for yourselves, just click on the "View List" button for more. 


10. Janet Van Dyne



I would never have imagined placing Janet Van Dyne so low on this list but her role in the sequel is so brief and unsatisfying, last place sadly seems most fitting. She doesn't show up until the very end of Ant-Man and The Wasp and doesn't really do much beyond healing Ghost with powers which are never explained after spending three decades in the Quantum Realm without ever offering an explanation about how she survived. The character has potential but we may not see that until Ant-Man 3.
 

9. Cassie Lang



The young Abby Ryder Fortson is really given the opportunity to show off her talents in Ant-Man and The Wasp and it's easy to imagine her having a bright future (and faring a lot better than Chloe Grace Moretz has since starring in Kick-Ass). With any luck, that's going to play out in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a lot of hints are dropped here about the possibility of Scott Lang's daughter becoming Stature, something it will obviously be very satisfying to play out on screen over the next decade. 
 

8. Sonny Burch



Walton Goggins is a fantastic actor and while he's not playing the villain many comic book fans would have liked to see (as in a true big bad who comes to blows with Scott Lang), he does exactly what's required of him as the black market arms dealer looking to secure Hank Pym's Quantum Realm tech. He's given a lot of funny lines and delivers a strong performance but it's somewhat unlikely you'll be desperate to see more of him as it's hard to imagine the character doing much more in the MCU.
 

7. X-Con



I've lumped Luis, Dave, and Kurt into the same group here because they all receive around the same amount of screentime. Dave gets almost completely overlooked but Kurt has some fun moments and it goes without saying that Luis steals the show. It's just unfortunate that after he emerged as a breakout character in Ant-Man that Marvel Studios decided against giving something more substantial to do here! With any luck, that will change if and when a third instalment of the franchise reaches theaters
 

6. Bill Foster



Bill Foster is predictably revealed as a villain of sorts in Ant-Man and The Wasp but the fact he's such a layered character really goes a long way in making him stand out from so many other secondary bad guys in the MCU. Clearly conflicted about his actions, Foster may have that one moment where he lays out his plan like a typical villain but it doesn't take long until we realise he's a good man in a very tough position. It's just a shame we never get to see him adopt his Goliath persona to fight Scott Lang. 
 

5. Ghost



Ghost isn't your typical villain because her backstory is so tragic and her actions are actually understandable seeing as she has only weeks left to live. Visually, she's a lot of fun to watch and Hannah John-Kamen delivers a solid if not quite star-making performance in the sequel. The stage is clearly being set for her to become an ally to Ant-Man and The Wasp down the line and that's obviously going to be interesting to watch play out because there's a lot which could be done with her.
 

4. Hank Pym



Despite saying that shrinking could be fatal to him in 2015's Ant-Man, Hank Pym travels to the Quantum Realm in the sequel for one of the movie's most satisfying sequences. Between his reunion with Janet Van Dyne and the way he treats Scott throughout the course of this adventure as their relationship is slowly repaired following the events of Captain America: Civil War, Michael Douglas does a lot of great work here. Now, when are we finally going to see him meet The Avengers?
 

3. Jimmy Woo



Randall Park is a great actor and always a lot of fun to watch so it probably won't surprise you to learn that he's awesome here as FBI agent Jimmy Woo. While he's not playing an entirely faithful version of his comic book counterpart, his interactions with Scott Lang prove to be a highlight and it's hard not to finish the sequel desperate to see more of the character. He's funny, hugely likeable, and Park's chemistry with Rudd is a highlight. Here's hoping he pops up before Ant-Man 3 is released in Phase 4.
 

2. Ant-Man



Paul Rudd is once again fantastic as Scott Lang and while it's a little disappointing that he's spent the past two years at home having nothing to do with Hank Pym and Hope Van Dyne, it's easy enough to understand his actions when we learn he was just putting his daughter first. His story arc is extremely satisfying but his best moments arguably come when he transforms into Giant-Man as those are just so much fun. Now, here's hoping he's given plenty to do in Avengers 4 next year, especially after that ending. 
 

1. The Wasp



Who else was it going to be? The first female superhero to receive top billing in a Marvel Studios movie, The Wasp is amazing from start to finish and she steals the show both in terms of action scenes and how things play out between her and her family. After this, it's essential that Hope Van Dyne is given the opportunity to step out of Ant-Man's shadow and be her own her in a future Avengers movie because she's absolutely brilliant and a delight to watch throughout the course of the sequel.
