We’ve seen a lot of big set videos and photos for Marvel’s upcoming superhero sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp. However, while we’ve seen a lot of what’s to come, we have no real idea of the context behind the photos are.

Today, we have some new plot details, courtesy of our friends over at MCU Exchange.

Obviously, if you don’t want to be spoiled by the basic plot of the film at this point, don’t read ahead.







All right, here we go.

First things first, the film reportedly begins after the events in Captain America: Civil War — though it’s unclear just how long after. After Cap broke everyone out, Ant-Man was apparently caught, and he now finds himself under house arrest (Yeah, you can destroy an airport and break out of a special prison, and apparently only get house arrest as a sentence. Guess he’s not nearly as important as the other Avengers, is he?). While this sounds like bad news, he apparently gets to spend more time with his daughter, which could be considered a net positive for him. But with him under house arrest, Ant-Man is essentially no more.

Meanwhile Hank and Hope are still working on a way to bring back Hope’s mother Jan back from the Quantum Realm (who we saw get stuck there decades prior in the first film). They are using Pym Particles to keep their lab mobile, which will be helpful in the film itself, since they’ll be on the run for a good chunk of the flick. We don’t know much about how Walton Goggins, Hannah John-Kaman, or Randall Park’s characters play into this, but they’re apparently on the hunt for the duo.

Eventually, Hope and Scott team back up — and Scott even ends up in FBI gear for some reason — and the real meat of the story begins, which will take place over a very short period of time.

Obviously, this isn’t a whole lot to start with, but it sounds like it’s setting the stage for a fun and intriguing film. For once, it’s kind of nice to see the MacGuffin of a film be the actual lead characters of the movie. That’ll make for some fun set pieces, with Hope and Scott on the run.

What do you think of all this? Does this sound like an exciting start to Ant-Man and the Wasp? Let us know down below!
