WARNING: The next article comprises spoilers for Marvel’s Ant-Man and The Wasp, in theaters now.
Regardless of its low stakes, there’s lots happening in director Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man and The Wasp. Whether or not it’s a tie to Avengers: Infinity Battle or a promise made in 2015’s Ant-Man and made good on right here, the film has a lot to supply followers searching for a bit extra beneath the floor. And what if a type of little particulars was a sneak peek at the way forward for the Marvel Cinematic Universe — one with the Younger Avengers?
It’s no secret that Scott Lang’s daughter, Cassie, is a giant a part of why he does what he does. She pushes Scott to reside and do higher, whether or not it’s in his private life or as a size-changing superhero. Cassie (performed by Abby Ryder Fortson) stays on the middle of the plot, whether or not it’s as a result of an evil CEO desires to make use of her to pay money for some Pym Particles or as a result of she’s masking for father so he doesn’t go to jail (once more).
Cassie’s nice, so it solely is sensible that the MCU would observe her comedian e-book trajectory and switch her into the size-changing Younger Avengers member Stature. And there’s a small trace at that potential in Ant-Man and The Wasp.
It occurs in the midst of the movie, when Scott returns to his house and narrowly dodges being caught breaking the phrases of his home arrest. He’s sits on the ground with Cassie, and the 2 speak about Scott’s return to the uniform. She mainly provides him a pep discuss after which says, “Perhaps you want a associate watching your again?”
The apparent reply to that is, in fact, Janet van Dyne, The Wasp, and Scott says as a lot. However Cassie then appears to be like a bit dejected, telling her dad that she actually meant herself. For the common viewer, it is a enjoyable, lovely second between father and daughter. However for extra eagle-eyed comedian e-book followers, it’s a possible look of what’s to return.
