Ant-Man and the Wasp is finally here! And it's a hell of a lot of fun.
So how did Marvel pull off such a light film after the absolutely gutting ending of Infinity War? Well – mostly by completely ignoring it.
When Ant-Man and the Wasp begins, we learn Scott has only a few days left of house arrest. Setting the movie before the final act of Infinity War, with no reference to the battles bubbling up around the world, was a very deliberate choice by the filmmakers.
Of course, that doesn't mean Infinity War is entirely forgotten about. The mid-credits scene of Ant-Man and the Wasp, which takes place not too long after the main plot of the movie, syncs up with the end of Infinity War.
Could a time vortex in the quantum realm be the key to reversing Thanos' snap, and bringing all our faves back to life? If so, the fate of the universe is in the hands of this guy.
