Scott Lang is grappling with the consequences of his choices as both a superhero and a father. Approached by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym, Lang must once again don the Ant-Man suit and fight alongside the Wasp. The urgent mission soon leads to secret revelations from the past as the dynamic duo finds itself in an epic battle against a powerful new enemy.
Overall Thoughts / Non-Spoiler Review:
Ant-Man and the Wasp is the last film of Phase 3 of the MCU, and a sequel to Ant-Man, relying heavily on the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War and mostly concurrent, timeline wise, with Infinity War Part 1 (which you should probably watch before this, though it is largely ignored in this film).
I thought the film was funny, with the humor feeling more natural and less forced than in some Marvel films (Ragnarok suffered from this, as did Black Panther at times). The cast and acting was great, and while the story was a little predictable after around 20 minutes, it was an overall really good and really fun addition to the Marvel Universe and as a movie in general.
Its also a lot less stressful than Infinity War was.

NOW I’M RANTING:
Question Marks are now ILLEGAL.
Just so we are clear.
I thought we were safe. Infinity War was ignored, it was fine.
I THOUGHT WE WERE SAFE.
But, the end credits scene… IT WAS NOT OKAY. The SCREAMING in the theater was honestly impressive.
My theory: Ant-Man is obviously important for Part 2 of Infinity War, I think the “Time Vortexes” Janet mentions might be a key to reversing the SNAP.
