    ★★★

    Created by Paul Norris & Mort Weisinger, Aquaman debuted in 1941's More Fun Comics #73.

    Ant-Man and the Wasp

    ★★★★

    "Evangeline Lilly is just fantastic in this role, effortlessly delivering on both sides of the action-comedy formula. She's able to exude charm, confidence, vulnerability, and emotion, making for an incredibly well-rounded and likable character that I cannot wait to see more of in 2019's Avengers: Infinity War follow-up. Likewise, Rudd makes an excellent Ant-Man, playing Scott as someone you care about; someone that when he messes up or does the wrong thing, you empathize with him, but you also can’t…
