Ant-Man and the Wasp is film based on the Marvel Comics characters Scott Lang / Ant-Man and Hope van Dyne / Wasp.


The film opens in 1987 as Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and his wife Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) are set to go on a mission, leaving their young daughter Hope in the care of their housekeeper. As Ant-Man and the Wasp, they shrink themselves to stop a Soviet nuclear missile from hitting American soil. Janet went subatomic to drop the missile into the ocean, but it left her lost in the Quantum Realm, and she was presumed dead. However, after Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), as the new Ant-Man, went sub-atomic and managed to return to normal size, Hank tells Hope (now played by Evangeline Lilly) that there might be a way to bring Janet back.
Ant-Man and the Wasp make a great team, and it’s definitely a movie that anyone can enjoy, no matter the age and how interested they are in the Marvel fandom. I loved the action, storyline, special effects stellar quality, and actor chemistry that this movie presented. While teaching a good movie about family and forming friendships with others; this movie had amazing action scenes, stunning CGI that wowed the whole audience, and a different perspective of a villain in the Marvel Universe, compared to past Marvel villains. It’s a movie you cannot miss.
