Plot

'Ant-Man and the Wasp' follows the adventures of size-changing superhero Scott Lang, Ant-Man, who owes his powers to a suit created by Hank Pym (Michael Douglas). He is joined by Hank's daughter, Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), who wears a similar suit as the Wasp. The series introduced the Quantum Realm to the MCU, a realm that exists at a quantum level that allows for time-travel, which helped save the world in 'Avengers: Endgame'. The last film saw the Ant-Man team venture into the Quantum Realm, where they rescued Hank's wife and Hope's mother, Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), the original Wasp. The new film shall see the family reuinited in a post-Endgame world, and also introduce time-travelling villain Kang the Conqueror.

Based on the title, the movie is going to further explore the Quantum Realm and the possibilities it holds, of which time-travel is only one. “The third Ant-Man movie is going to be a much bigger, more sprawling movie than the first two,” director Peyton Reed has said of the film. “It's going to have a very different visual template.”
