Rumored Plot Details For Ant-Man And The Wasp Hint At Another Trip Into The Quantum Realm


A host of alleged plot details for Ant-Man and the Wasp have surfaced from the Quantum Realm (read: MCU Exchange), and it looks like the titular duo will be on the hunt for Janet van Dyne come 2019.

First teased in Peyton Reed’s rip-roaring sleeper hit, in MCU canon, Janet van Dyne is the unsung hero of 1987, when she plunged into the Quantum Realm in order to disarm a Soviet ICBM (Intercontinental Ballistic Missile). Heartbroken, Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) later told the young Hope (Evangeline Lilly) that her mother was killed in a plane crash, and it wasn’t until the advent of Scott Lang, along with his climactic showdown with Darren Cross/Yellow Jacket, that Hank Pym began to question his wife’s disappearance. Because you know what they say about going sub-atomic…

Still, Marvel has since cast Michelle Pfeiffer in the role of Janet van Dyne, which tells us that the original Wasp will have a fairly significant part to play when Ant-Man and the Wasp swings into theaters. Now, that rumored story arc has been backed up by MCU Exchange’s findings.

Citing a source close to production, the outlet claims Peyton Reed’s follow-up begins with Scott Lang on house arrest. Still reeling from the events of Civil War – remember, just like Spider-Man: Homecoming before it, Ant-Man 2 will seemingly take place in the fallout of Marvel’s 2016 crossover – Paul Rudd’s hero is said to be enjoying more time with his daughter Cassie, though is quickly pulled back into the fray once he catches wind of Hope and Hank’s mission.

It’s one that involves venturing into the Quantum Realm in order to retrieve the wayward Janet. Hunted by “all types of folks,” Hope and Hank are able to keep a low profile thanks to Pym Particles, which shrinks their base of operations down to an infinitesimal level.

No further details were disclosed regarding Walton Goggin’s Sonny Burch, Hannah John-Kaman’s Ghost nor Randall Park’s Jimmy Woo, but this report stresses that Ant-Man and the Wasp will unfold across a “very short” space of time. Think of how The Defenders all took place within a single week and you’ll begin to get an idea of the alleged time frame.

As with all Marvel rumors, we’d advise treating this conspiracy as just that. But we can at least look forward to the sequel’s release on July 6th, 2018, just after Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War.
