ANT-MAN AND THE WASP Director Spills The Beans On Each Of The Characters In The Sequel

The last time we saw Scott Lang, he was being broken out of The Raft by Steve Rogers. So, will Captain America: Civil War have an impact on Ant-Man and The Wasp? Director Peyton Reed spills the beans.

Ant-Man exceeded expectations back in 2015 despite the fact that it lost original director Edgar Wright. Peyton Reed was chosen as his replacement and he did such a great job that Marvel Studios asked him to return for the follow-up, this August's Ant-Man and The Wasp.

During a recent chat with Empire Magazine, the filmmaker talked about each of the four lead characters in the sequel - Scott Lang, Hank Pym, Hope Van Dyne, and Janet Van Dyne - and revealed some very intriguing details about the role they all play in this movie.

He also sheds some light on how Civil War has changed the story and teases a few GIANT changes for Ant-Man. So, to find out more, simply click either of the buttons below.


Scott Lang



"The events of Captain America: Civil War gave us something clear, which is: what was Hank Pym and Hope Van Dyne's reaction to Scott having taken this technology out into the world in Civil War? We had a lot of fun playing around with that. And we play with size and scale a lot. I love the idea of Giant-Man."
 

Hank Pym



"The events of Civil War, and how Scott reacted to that, have thrown a big wrench into the works. But his curiosity has been reawakened about the Quantum Realm and whether Janet's still alive down there."
 

Janet Van Dyne



"She's a very important character. It's fair to say if someone were to have spent thirtysomething years in the Quantum Realm and survived, it would have an effect. What did she eat? All she eats is cereal called Quantum Krispies."
 

Hope Van Dyne



"This is really her coming out party as a hero. Her power set is fantastic. She and Scott both shrink, but there the flying, and the fighting style of The Wasp is different from Ant-Man's."
