Marvel’s Ant-Man and The Wasp seems underwhelming and anti-climactic after the action-packed, mind-boggling, and heart-wrenching Avengers: Infinity War, but give it a chance—it just might offer a clue into what happens in Avengers 4 and tide you over until we see the resolution of this mess Thanos made. Besides, it’s a fun movie!
According to Producer Kevin Feige, Ant-Man and The Wasp, AKA Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), are very important characters to what happens next in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Both will have a major influence in the resolution of the events in last April’s Avengers: Infinity War.
In a recent featurette released by Marvel Studios (watch it below), Feige declares, “Ant-Man and The Wasp also directly connects to Avengers 4. These characters are going to be very important going forward.”
If you’ll remember, for his participation in the epic airport brawl in Captain America: Civil War, Scott was thrown in jail, but was later liberated by Captain America. Avengers: Infinity War elaborates on this when Captain America explains that Scott took a plea deal and is living under house arrest. Gallivanting around the world as a super-outlaw and spy would have taken too much of a toll on his family, so he elected to hang up his costume.
But as he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as a superhero, Scott finds himself suiting up as Ant-Man once again when he must join forces with The Wasp on an urgent mission to uncover secrets from the past. Oh, and like with all Marvel movies, you have to watch it all the way until after the credits. That second to the last bonus scene totally made me WOAH in surprise and realization!
Ant-Man and The Wasp also stars Michael Douglas (Dr. Hank Pym), Michelle Pfeiffer (original The Wasp), Michael Peña, Walton Goggins, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Tip T.I. Harris, David Dastmalchian, Hannah John-Kamen, Abby Ryder Fortson, Randall Park, and Laurence Fishburne.
