Because, the subatomic space is the only place that is untouched by Thanos. Perhaps, because of that, Ant-Man survived when the Mad Titan snapped his fingers and annihilated half of the universe.
According to Evangeline Lilly, who plays The Wasp, if the Ant-Man and the Wasp film is a success, a whole new multiverse could be open to enter. Marvel Studios can play around in it. In other words, it can be an opening bridge for the MCU phase 4 films. Or after Avengers 4.
Another thing that is also interesting, Ant-Man and the Wasp became the first MCU film to put a female character as the title. Producer Stephen Broussard emphasized that they deliberately took The Wasp in the story of the second Ant-Man film very seriously. He’s 100 percent co-lead. His presence is not only as a companion.
As the title implies, the story of the film Ant-Man and the Wasp is indeed about Ant-Man and The Wasp. About the two of them. It’s different from the first film. Which Hope Van Dyne portion is not too big. And he wasn’t in a costume yet either.
In the film Ant-Man and the Wasp, with the costume of The Wasp, Hope Van Dyne has the ability to change his size. Like Ant-Man. In fact, the daughter of Janet Van Dyne and Hank Pym has one advantage that Ant-Man does not have. Namely: Can fly very agile. Because Hank gave wings to his costume. And also a blaster.
When interviewed, Evangeline Lilly stated, the most difficult part in playing Hope Van Dyne is showing her emotional changes. Namely, from a daughter whose relationship with her father is not good to be warmer in the film Ant-Man and the Wasp. Repairing a broken relationship with a father, after 30 years, should have a profound effect on a person. That’s what Lilly wants to show in the character of Hope.
According to Evangeline Lilly, she wasn’t used to playing two different people from one film to the next. It took a while until, finally, Lilly found the right feeling. Which makes him feel comfortable to play the new character of Hope in the film Ant-Man and the Wasp.
In addition to highlighting female superhero characters, Ant-Man and the Wasp also introduces a new female villain. Namely: Ghosts. Played by actress Hannah John-Kamen. Who, in this film, does all the stunts himself!
In the Marvel comics version, actually, Ghost is a guy. It is said that he became the enemy of Iron Man. Not Ant-Man. According to director Peyton Reed, in fact, Ghost characters can be male, female, or whatever. However, in the end, Marvel Studios prefers to show her as a girl.
Initially, it is said, Ghost is an engineer. Who is also a hacker. Who created GhostTech. As a result, Ghost then has the ability to disappear, penetrate solid material, and create an intangible object. In addition, he can also easily break into firewalls and internet security systems. Even the most difficult.
