A lot has happened since we last left the main characters in 2015’s Ant-Man. Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) went off and fought in Captain America: Civil War, only to be arrested and subsequently broken out of prison. He’s a fugitive, again, only this time an international one.

Obviously, Scott’s global status as a wanted man is going to have an impact on the other characters in Ant-Man and the Wasp, but they’re also busy with their own pursuits. Director Peyton Reed recently discussed how each of the main cast members enter the story with Empire.

Ant-Man/Scott Lang
“The events of Captain America: Civil War gave us something clear, which is: what was Hank Pym and Hope Van Dyne’s reaction to Scott having taken this technology out into the world in Civil War? We had a lot of fun playing around with that. And we play with size and scale a lot. I love the idea of Giant-Man.”

Wasp/Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly)
“This is really her coming out party as a hero. Her power set is fantastic. She and Scott both shrink, but there the flying, and the fighting style of The Wasp is different from Ant-Man’s.”

Hank Pym (Michael Douglas)
“The events of Civil War, and how Scott reacted to that, have thrown a big wrench into the works. But his curiosity has been reawakened about the Quantum Realm and whether Janet’s still alive down there.”

Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer)
“She’s a very important character. It’s fair to say if someone were to have spent thirty-something years in the Quantum Realm and survived, it would have an effect. What did she eat? All she eats is cereal called Quantum Krispies.”

Please let there be a product tie-in for some Quantum Krispies in 2018. Better than that, though, is the news about Wasp’s power set. Ant-Man can do a lot of cool things, but he always has to hitch a ride for flight. It will be great to see Wasp flying around and incorporating that into combat.

Ant-Man and the Wasp, Marvel Studios’ 20th feature film, arrives in theaters July 6, 2018.
