After the collective trauma caused by the end of Infinity War, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is back with Ant-Man And The Wasp, and all the answers you hope to get out of this film. It will be this week, it debuts the film directed by Peyton Reed and starring Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and Michael Douglas.
The first part of the franchise was a genuine surprise that it managed to raise nearly 520 unexpected millions of dollars in box office around the world (Deapdool made 783 billion, to give you an idea) and now for the second part it is estimated that this will improve quite a bit, especially for its connections with the Avengers and the imminent future delivery, whose name was reportedly revealed last week.
So, in addition to the mixture of humor and action that made Ant-Man a branch powerful of Marvel, we may also collect several pieces of the puzzle heading to Avengers 4, that is why our brothers and sisters of Chilango helped us with this guide to the 8 things you need to know before you go to see the film.
1. How is accommodated in the timeline of Avengers?
Since we told them that would happen before or during Infinity War, as we have more details. More be linked with the last movie of the Avengers, this film is more a kind of sequel to Civil War, because though it begins two years after, addresses the issue of how to deal with the results of the agreements of Sokovia. This does not mean that you will not have any link, or reference with Infinity War, in fact, to see what will be the most interesting.
2. Where was Ant-Man?
One of the maximum questions to the Infinity War is what happened with Ant-Man and Hawkeye. Here we will know the destiny of the first. Sad house arrest, that is why, during the approach of the new film will see him trying to be a good father and citizen, as it is very close to finishing their sentence. However, you have to break the law when Hank and Hope to ask him for his help.

3. Fugitives from justice
The agreements Sokovia and that Scott made public to Ant-Man not only brought problems to him. Hank Pym and Hope are also persecuted by the authorities because they consider the technology Pym as something that enters into agreements. That means you could only use them when the government allows them to do so.
Hank is very angry that Scott put them in the public eye, because it’s not asked for advice to help the Cap, and because they must now flee the government. But something will happen that Hank is forced to look at Scott and ask his help.
4. Who is the bad?
The villain of this movie is called Ghost. You probably already saw in the posters and trailers, but in reality we know very little of this character that will make Hope and Hank require the help of Scott.
In the comic book is a character more linked to Iron-Man and his great skill is that he created a technology that is capable of becoming intangible and invisible, like a ghost. However, in Ant-Man and the Wasp this character will have big changes. The most obvious is that it will be a woman by the name of Ava.
5. The rescue of Michelle Pfeiffer
The beautiful actress of 60 years is the one who will embody Janet van Dyne, the Wasp original. Since the first part is secured to the breast of Hope he had been lost in the Realm of the Quantum with no possibility of rescue, until now. In this movie, Hank and Hope will receive a signal that convinces you that Janet is still alive. However, spending so many years there was able to affect you mentally to Janet and we don’t know how it will affect that to our heroes.
6 And to all this, what is the Kingdom of the Quantum?
The Realm of the Quantum is practically a subatomic realm in which the laws of space-time break. This place we had already seen in Ant-Man and Doctor Strange. In Ant-Man and the Wasp will be addressed more in the Realm of the Quantum, and we recommend to pay attention to everything that is said of him. Especially because Kevin Present —president of Marvel Studios— he remarked that it will be very important for the following Marvel movies and is connected with Captain Marvel.
7. Bill Foster comes to the MCU
This is for connoisseurs. In the comic book Ant-Man Bill Foster is a central character, who also bears the alias of Goliath. Now they bring this element to the franchise film in the skin of Lawrence Fishburne (who by the way is joins the select group of actors that have appeared in the universe of film from Marvel and DC). In the comics, worked for a time as assistant of Hank Pym, and by the trailers we can see that that party will remain in the film. His power is to increase its size as Ant-Man in Civil War, but on a smaller scale.
8. The post-credits scene
It is already a tradition to wait comfortably in your seat in the room when they finish the Marvel movies. In the case of Ant-Man And The Wasp will be two scenes, post-credits. It is not known yet what they will, but it is likely that they are related with future deliveries as Captain Marvel or Avengers 4. As we will see.
