According to the official synopsis for Ant-Man and the Wasp it begins "in the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War" and continues through Avengers: Infinity War. Although he's considered to have been a formidable fighter, he was killed in the events that preceded Captain America: Civil War. Losing Hank Pym or Janet van Dyne would make the post-Infinity War stakes extremely personal for Scott and Hope. Today, Marvel debuted another trailer for the upcoming movie, showing off some more shrinking superhero action.
Anyways, it's great to see Michael Pena's character Luis again and here's what's in store. If we do succeed in Ant-Man and The Wasp, then that does open a whole entire new multiverse to enter into and play around in. To Scott's surprise, Hope dawns a brand new supersuit as the Wasp, which allows her to fly and shoot lasers. The movie's antagonist Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) steals Hank Pym's (Michael Douglas) tech from the quantum realm and subsequently wreaks havoc.
In the Marvel Comics, the Quantum Realm is actually known as the Microverse but Paramount has rights to the name along with the Marvel property Micronauts.
Both Ant-Man and Wasp were missing from Infinity War, a conscious decision in-part due to the fact that their own movie is coming in just a couple of months. The film is a sequel to the 2015 origins story of "Ant-Man", that ending up making more than $500 million domestically. When he mentions how he's probably going to screw it up like he always does, she suggests that maybe what he really needs is a partner.
Is "Wow!" too much of an understatement?
Cool, breezy Sunday in today's forecast, warmer temperatures reaching 80s coming soon
Rain chances return next weekend but right now the chance for widespread rain and thunderstorms looks low. Look for a cold front to swing in next Friday for Oak's Day as showers and storms look like a good bet.
What this tells us about the MCU is that there are more heroes in it than we know about.
A second trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp has arrived and it seems the superheroes have some explaining to do.
While that's a valid concern, it's important to understand that Ant-Man and The Wasp doesn't need to up the ante from what happened in Infinity War. "The people I love the most, they pay the price". Will the audience show up for a film that doesn't pick up immediately after that Infinity War cliffhanger?
