Scott Lang, played by Paul Rudd, is trying to deal with the consequences of his choices as both a superhero and father. This time though, he will be teaming up with Hope van Dyne, played by Evangeline Lilly, who has her own suit that comes with cool upgrades such as blasters and a pair of wings.
It may still be surprising how popular MCU's Ant-Man was with Paul Rudd playing the titular hero undoing the perspective of weird and making it fun for audiences. Hope and Scott must learn to put their past differences behind them to become a dynamic duo. This sets up future crossover events featuring the two of them. The sequel's story revolves around Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Hope van Dyne's (Evangeline Lily) research experiments into the Quantum Realm, in the hopes of rescuing Janet van Dyne, the original Wasp. The casting of the central characters was spot-on, so that you couldn't imagine anyone else in the roles of Scott Lang and Hank Pym than Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas.

Hence, Ant-Man and the Wasp will simply be a standalone movie that tidies up a few questions left unanswered after the shrinking thief-turned-superhero chose to side with Captain America against the band of Iron Man.
Plus, we also get a look at DCEU's Laurence Fishburne playing Ben Foster-better known in the comics as Goliath. While the guitar riff heard in the trailer wasn't exactly hidden, it wasn't given too much thought until now, as director Peyton Reed has confirmed it's a very clever Easter egg.
Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, Rudd, Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari wrote the screenplay.
Ant-Man and the Wasp arrives in the United Kingdom on 8 August, a whole month behind its U.S. debut on 6 July.
