Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is an upcoming American superhero film based on Marvel Comics featuring Scott Lang / Ant-Man and Hope Pym / Wasp. Produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, it is intended to be the sequel to Ant-Man (2015) and Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) and the 32nd film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The film is directed by Peyton Reed from a screenplay by Jeff Loveness. It stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang and Evangeline Lilly as Hope van Dyne, alongside Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Kathryn Newton, and Jonathan Majors.
After the events of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang grapples with how to responsibly use his new ant-sized form while fighting crime in San Francisco. As Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym present him with a new suit he has shrunk down to ant size for emergencies, Wasp warns that it isn’t ready yet and is more dangerous for the user than intended.
Ant-man goes into a quantum realm to save Janet van Dyne, who has been lost in there for thirty years—or maybe just hours or seconds (it’s unclear). However, when he does return, it turns out that he was gone for days while only moments passed on Earth. It becomes clear that ant-man gave up his daughter and his wife so they can be together forever without ever having to age. He gives her a goodbye kiss which she accepts but then gets angry at him because of how long it took him to come back with no explanation about why or what happened in those 25 years only minutes had passed here on earth.
