MARVEL’S smallest hero returns to cinemas this week. Unlike last time, he’s not alone in saving the day.

Ant-Man and the Wasp sees - first film supporting actor - Evangelina Lily step to the fore as the titular Wasp. Slicker in costume, and able to fly, her sting is more than a match for Ant-Man himself - who is once again played by Paul Rudd.

We first met Ant-Man back in 2015 in a lightweight film that was released to act as a comic counterbalance to the more serious Avengers: Age of Ultron earlier that year.

Three years later, the role of Ant-Man and the Wasp is largely the same. After the dramatically intense Infinity War in April, the new film serves as a reminder that superhero adventures can simply be just good fun.

And good fun this is. Don’t expect to be emotionally challenged - one set piece involves a giant Hello Kitty Pez dispenser - but you can bank on jokes aplenty and high quality effects.

Michael’s Peña and Douglas both return for the sequel, whilst Michelle Pfeiffer and Lawrence Fishburne join the party. The stakes might not be so high here - some may question the film’s necessity in an overpopulated market - but genre fans will enjoy what they see. Ant-Man 2 betters its predecessor.

As ever with Marvel, you’ll want to stick around for the end of the credits; Infinity War’s shocking cliffhanger isn’t totally ignored here.

Based trailers alone, the debut feature for the animated TV series Teen Titans Go! ought to have been a fans-only affair. It looked loud. What a surprise, then, to find that most critics have responded to the film with warmth.

Originally a D.C. Comics superhero group, the Teen Titans have appeared in over two hundred television shows on Cartoon Network since their series launched in 2013.

Hugely popular on the small screen, it is no wonder that Warner Brothers wanted these comical characters on the big screen.

Typically, for a cinematic transference, the cast list is starrier in the film. Here, Nicolas Cage voices Superman, Jimmy Kimmel does Batman, whilst James Corden - whose recent turns in The Emoji Movie and Ocean’s 8 were dire - dons an accent for Balloon Man.

The animation is distinctive in style and the in-jokes and cameos link this to Marvel’s Deadpool in tone, albeit for a much - much - younger audience.
