MCU Fans Can't Help But Think Ant-Man 3's Dialogue Was Written By ChatGPT

"Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" is finally out, and the reception has been ... mixed, to say the least. It's currently sitting at the second-lowest score for an MCU movie on Rotten Tomatoes (right behind "Eternals"), and the general response from fans is that it's a missed opportunity and a lackluster end to the "Ant-Man" trilogy. For every bright spot in the film, like the introduction of Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors), there are two other things fans and critics think could be improved.

If social media is anything to go off of, it appears fans have taken serious umbrage with the film's dialogue. MCU movies are known for having a copious quantity of jokes, so a few one-liners are to be expected. The franchise has also been known to become surprisingly profound, like when Vision (Paul Bettany) told Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen), "What is grief, if not love persevering?" "Quantumania" certainly has plenty of jokes, but it seems that when it comes to a good chunk of the talking, fans thought it felt out of place. 

Fans are worried about future Marvel projects

A discussion broke out on Reddit concerning "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania," and one major point of contention concerned the film's dialogue. Redditor u/123123feienr kicked things off by writing, "Some of the dialogue legit sounded like it was written by ChatGPT." Of course, ChatGPT is an AI writing system where you input a prompt, and it produces a writing sample for you. It's still in its infancy, so much of what it puts out sounds vaguely human but just a little off. Apparently, fans find that an apt description for some of the dialogue in "Quantumania."

U/ConstantineTheFrog added, "Like half of Hank's dialogue was just 'Ya know...ants!'" While some fans think the movie's script could've used another pass, it makes others worried about the future of the Marvel universe. "Quantumania" was written by Jeff Loveness, who up until this point was best known for writing on "Rick and Morty" and was even credited for the beloved "The Vat of Acid Episode." Loveness has been hired to write "Avengers: The Kang Dynasty," and that has some extremely worried.

Redditor u/BensunCFong wrote, "What's worse is that the writer has been hired to solo write The Kang Dynasty next. I wonder how much of his previous work (including The Vat of Acid Episode of R&M) might have succeeded due to uncredited contributions from around the table." It's impossible to please everyone, but hopefully, the issues people have with "Quantumania" are non-existent for something as franchise-altering as "The Kang Dynasty."
