Recently, Ant-Man director Peyton Reed discussed some new details about the upcoming sequel to his surprise hit in a recent interview with Modern Myth Media giving some small tidbits on what to expect with the next film. Here’s what he said:
“It’s something we’re excited about. For me as a comic nerd, I always thought of Ant-Man and Wasp as a team and that’s a lot of what the second movie is really about is how they work together, what their personal and professional relationships are like. To show her finally fully formed in this movie is really exciting. We really get to introduce this character into that universe. I mean we’ve introduced the character, but we haven’t seen her with her full power set and everything, so to me she’s not a supporting character in this movie. It’s every bit as much her movie as it is Scott Lang’s.”
Seeing Evangeline Lilly kick butt like she did alongside Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man was one of the gearing parts of the film and with her character now established it makes perfect sense to expand their chemistry and stories together.
DISCLAIMER: THIS NEXT PART MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR
Ant-Man and the Wasp will take place after the events of Captain America: Civil War which had Captain America’s team held up in a max security prison after their showdown with Tony Stark’s team. At the end of the film, Captain America breaks them out which is where we last see Scott Lang. Whether they show us Wasp coming in and swooping him up and taking him home with her, it should be interesting to see where Ant-Man and the Wasp’s story goes from there.
