Marvel’s Ant-Man and The Wasp is officially out in theatres.
From Paul Rudd’s comical and often clueless Scott Lang/Ant-Man, Evangeline Lilly’s witty Hope Van Dyne/The Wasp and Hannah John-Kamen’s villainous Ghost to Michael Peña’s hilarious Luis, the film will have you giggling and on the edge of your seat for two hours.
Ant-Man and The Wasp starts off after the events of Captain America: Civil War, with Scott Lang under house arrest for his involvement in the Avengers fight that took place in Germany, against The Sokovia Accords.
He ends up getting roped into helping Dr Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Hope Van Dyne rescue Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), who is stuck in the Quantum Realm because of an incident when Hope was still a child. They succeed against all odds, with the FBI, the villain Ghost and low-level criminal Sonny Burch (Walton Goggins) gunning to stop them for various reasons.
The ending sees the Van Dyne family happily re-united, and Scott finally let off house arrest. Ant-Man and The Wasp is the first MCU film to come out after Marvel’s Avengers Infinity War, where we saw the epic Thanos snap that cut the world population in half, in an attempt to balance the universe.
No Marvel movie is complete without a post-credits scene, and Ant-Man and The Wasp is no different. In the first post-credit scene, we see Ant-Man entering the Quantum Realm, expecting Hank, Hope and Janet to pull him out soon. However, as he is ready to exit, the Thanos snap happens again, and the Van Dyne family dissolve into dust, leaving Lang stranded in the Quantum Realm.
This movie has set up a tonne of hype for the as yet untitled Avengers 4 movie that’s slated for release next summer.
“A funny story, because, you know, in Avengers 4,” said Paul Rudd, before pretending to be hit in the neck with a dart and falling out of his chair, during an interview about Scott Lang’s role in Marvel’s future films.
So the question remains: will we be seeing Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man in the Avengers 4 film?
Verdict: Highly likely.
