No, it's not Ant-Man flying on Hawkeyes' arrow, or turning into Giant-Man. Marvel's mightiest hero, Scott Lang, will be front and center this spring in [Captain America: Civil War](tag:994409)! It makes sense the ex-con would want to stay off the government's radar. Sadly, Evangeline Lily's Wasp won't be making an appearance due to her being pregnant at the time of filming. Before I jump into telling you why Ant-Man could make Marvel's MCU even more spectacular, let's first take a look at what we might see in Ant-Man and The Wasp!
If Paul Rudd wasn't so damn like-able, then I would just want a solo movie about Hope Van Dyne. If the movie doesn't cover the disappearance of her mother, then I am going to be disappointed. The main villain should be Egghead. Marvel has a vast array of villains to choose from, but we want one with ties to Hank's life as Ant-Man; this will allow us to further explore his and Janet's relationship without relying heavily on exposition.
Plus, his genius-level-intellect could give us way more information on the Quantum Realm (Micro-verse). Marvel would be a fool to waste an opportunity to have Hank and Egghead work together to try to bring Janet back. This allows for an emotional story and it would be really cool to see the two heroes fight whatever they have in store.
Speaking of the Quantum Realm...
We've all seen Ant-Man traveled into the great beyond (?) in his solo movie. We saw a glimpse of The Wasp and this piqued our curiosity. This is far too interesting of a subject to leave untouched. What has Ant-Man been doing until the events of Civil War? Check out what Kevin Feige said to THR in this interview:
FEIGE It really is the movie that closes out Phase Two. Phase One ended with Avengers. So some people thought that Phase Two would end with an Avengers film. But the truth is, there is so much in Ant-Man: introducing a new hero, introducing a very important part of technology in the Marvel universe, the Pym particles. Ant-Man getting on the Avengers' radar in this film and even – this is the weirdest part, you shouldn't really talk about it because it won't be apparent for years – but the whole notion of the quantum realm and the whole notion of going to places that are so out there, they are almost mind-bendingly hard to fathom. It all plays into Phase Three. It became very clear that Ant-Man is the pinnacle and finale of Phase Two and Captain America: Civil War [May 6] is the start of Phase Three.
This Quantum Realm could also be used as somewhat of a tool! Wait, what? Do you watch Guardians of the Galaxy on Disney XD? Rocket has a pocket-verse tool that he uses to store various weapons to have with him at a moments notice. I suggest how cool would it be to have each individual Avenger carry one of these for whatever they needed. After the events of Age of Ultron, Hank Pym made a comment about The Avengers dropping cities from the sky. This means that the MCU follows relatively the same time-frame as we the audience. So, what has Scott and Hope been up to since the events of Ant-Man? Probably trying to figure out how to get Janet back from that dog-gone realm! With one of their experiments leading to the creation of this tool!
Imagine Spider-Man can carry his Iron Spider suit in this pocket-realm and use it whenever he deems fit (I know he's on Team Stark, but it would still be cool!). This could open-up a lot of doors for our heroes and it would make things a lot sweeter. But I doubt it that we'll see it in Civil War. I'm pretty sure we'll see it later in Marvel's MCU though!
