Marvel fans were raging after the ending of Infinity Wars, unfortunately Ant-Man and the Wasp does not create a spoiler or display any answers on what continues after Thanos destruction.

It was necessary for the movie to continue after the scenes of where Civil War was left off. As we now know, Ant-Man turned himself in for siding with Captain America. Ant-Man and the Wasp continues with the scene of Scott being on house arrest, attempting to entertain his daughter.

While the sequel does give a refreshing new take for Ant-Man and the Wasp as they share the important heroic characteristics, more importantly Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) holds the title of a super hero in this movie.  Scott’s (Paul Rudd) top priority consists of  rehabilitating himself and becoming a responsible father for his daughter Cassie (Abby Ryder  Fortson).

The character of the Wasp almost creates an exciting female leading role for her momentum and Ant-Man’s character as the secondary sidekick. This is viewed in different scenes, especially since Scott attempts several times to return home, since he is on house arrest —instead of helping Hope find her mother.

Since Lilly’s character becomes primarily important in Ant-Man, her initial idea is to continue with the rumors of an all female Avengers. We might have to wait on it and see what the returning director, Peyton Reed decides.

However, we do get more familiar with the Quantum Realm— the microscopic alternate dimension where her mother, Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) has apparently been trapped for decades.

The scenes of the Quantum Realm does deserve a less tighter scene. The subatomic dimension seemed too jumbled together and very overwhelming for what the realm has to offer.

Let’s not forget the villains in this movie. Marvel fans are used to a typical evil character who fairly creates redemption. After all,  Thano’s evil seemed to have no room for redemption. Hannah John-Kamen’s role as Ghost, ventures further way from Marvel’s traditional character. Kamen plays a villain who’s purpose is to survive and release herself from the pain the kinetic energy has caused her body.

Bill Foster’s (Laurence Fishburne) who has played a marvel character before, in the early 2000s Fantastic Four, hardly portrays villain characteristics, but more of a father figure to Ghost.

Although answers after Thanos weren’t announced, a small scene after credits does give the audience a sneak peak of what is set to come.
