There’s a little movie studio called Marvel Studios and they have a couple little characters — one’s named Ant-Man, the other one’s the Wasp. Together, they form the duo known simply as Ant-Man and the Wasp. Of all the films the studio currently has in production, Ant-Man and the Wasp is the last one to hit theatres, with a premiere date of July 6, 2018.
Though we’ve seen some pre-vis footage at San Diego Comic Con, been given a plot synopsis and seen a few pictures from set, we still know very little about what the actual story of the film will be. However, the intrepid minds at MCU Exchange have got their hands on a regular scoop. As they say, one of their sources has told them that the film will “take place over a very short amount of time” and will “see the leads begin the film in very different situations.” Apparently, the film “takes place after Lang’s escape from prison” where he is on house arrest.
Yes. Remember in Captain America: Civil War when he was Team Cap and they all got arrested and sent to The Raft, and then at the end Cap helps them all escape? So apparently this film takes place shortly after that with Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) spending more time with his daughter, Cassie. In fact, according to the site, Civil War has pushed Lang to decide he’ll never don the suit again.
And then there’s Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly). They are both heavily invested in rescuing Pym’s wife and Hope’s mother, Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), from the Quantum Realm. Ever since Lang proved you could go sub-atomic and come back to the normal world, they’ve been seeking a way to rescue her. According to the site, they are using “Pym Particles to keep their lab small and mobile. This is, apparently, due to the fact that Hank and Hope will “spend a good deal of the film on the run with all types of folks out for them.”
There was no information from their source on Sonny Burch (Walton Goggins), Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) or Jimmy Woo (Randall Park) roles in the film, though it can be presumed that Burch and Ghost are working together to capture Pym and The Wasp.
