Ant-Man and the Wasp Rumor Hints At Civil War Aftermath

Should a new report prove to be true, the question of how Ant-Man and his fellow heroes were freed from prison after Captain America: Civil War will be addressed -- somewhat -- in 2018's Ant-Man and the Wasp.

When we last saw Paul Rudd's Scott Lang, he'd been imprisoned upon the raft following the events of Civil War. Although we never see Cap's team make their escape, it's presumed that Steve ROgers helped them all break free, leaving many to question exactly what happened after Cap made his return to the Raft for the others.

A new report from MCU Excange offers a potentially better understanding of the timeline of Ant-Man and the Wasp and how Scott's time in Germany and aboard the Raft will come into play. It appears the sequel will take place shortly after Scott breaks out from the Raft and will see the hero on house arrest early on, although it's currently unknown how he managed to get away with only house arrest following the events in Germany.

While Scott deals with his situation, Hope and her father Hank are said to be trying to figure out a way to bring the original Wasp, Janet van Dyne, back from the Quantum Realm. This, of course, is something fans expected when Marvel Studios announced Michelle Pfeiffer had been cast in the role. Apparently, they'd been in the midst of their research when Lang took off to help Cap face off against Iron Man, leaving the duo frustrated.

Perhaps even more intriguing is that Hope and Hank, who are using Pym Particles to keep their mobile lab small, are said to be on the run for a majority of the film. Given credence to this rumor are the set images we've seen thus far, showing Hope on the go and facing off against the Ghost on at least one occasion. Of course, it's only a matter of time before Scott and Hope re-team to take down one of the film's villain -- if not both.
