In this second film, finally, the answer to the fans’ question will be revealed: Why didn’t Ant-Man and The Wasp appear when Thanos wiped out half the universe?
Although Ant-Man and The Wasp did not appear in Avengers: Infinity War, in an interview, producer Kevin Feige confirmed that they would still have an important role in the Avengers 4 film, which, according to the plan, will be released next year. In the final trailer for Ant-Man and The Wasp, which was released last May, there was indeed a hint about it. One of them is a scene that displays the Quantum Realm. Namely, a mysterious subatomic space.
FYI, as explained in the first Ant-Man film, no human can shrink to subatomic size and then return safely from the Quantum Realm. Hope’s mother (Evangeline Lilly), Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), is believed to have disappeared within the Quantum Realm when she became The Wasp.
To enter the Quantum Realm is indeed a very difficult thing. The first is to use magical energy and perform mystical transportation. Like Doctor Strange (2016). Then, the second, can reduce the body to a subatomic size. With Pym Particles technology. It was created by Hank Pym (Michael Douglas).
After his wife, Janet Van Dyne, disappears in the Quantum Realm, Hank Pym, who used to be Ant-Man, becomes obsessed with searching for him. He was sure that Janet was still alive. In there. And can still be saved. The obsession, in the end, throws Hank’s life into chaos. He then lost the Pym Tech company he founded. His relationship with the princess was damaged. Hope Van Dyne blames Hank for the tragedy that befell his mother.
However, after 30 years, as seen in the first Ant-Man film, Hope Van Dyne and Hank Pym’s relationship began to improve. One of them, thanks to the presence of Scott Lang. Which, in the end, Hank chose to be the new Ant-Man. Hank uses this moment to complete his long-standing obsession: Finding Janet Van Dyne. Inside the Quantum Realm. However, this time, it was not he who had to enter the subatomic space himself, but Hope and Scott.
Hank Pym then made a new Hope Van Dyne costume for The Wasp. Which is far more sophisticated than her mother’s. Scott Lang, finally, decided to join Hope to complete the mission to find Janet Van Dyne. By entering the Quantum Realm. And at the same time uncover the secrets of the Pym Family’s past.
However, even so, in the last trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp, which was released by Marvel Studios, as soon as Quantum Realm opened, a new threat appeared from a mysterious villain. The one named Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen). Who tried to steal the Pym Particles technology.
Meanwhile, on the other hand, Ant-Man, which has shrunk to the size of a subatomic scale, seems capable of venturing into the Quantum Realm in search of Janet Van Dyne’s whereabouts. If the mystery of the Quantum Realm is solved, it is very possible, it can be used to help Captain America and friends fight Thanos in the Avengers 4 film later.
