Ant Man and the Wasp picked up right where the first Ant Man film left off. It continued with the mix of comedy and action. The film has two main themes, one is family and the other is redemption.

The film has three different storylines that all come together at the end. The first is Ant Man-Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) is contacted by Hank (Michael Douglas) and Hope Pym (Evangeline Lilly) who want his help to try to find their missing wife-mother Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) who was lost in the Quantum Realm. At the same time a mysterious figure known as Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) helped by Bill Foster (Laurence Fishburne) is trying to steal the Pym’s technology to try to help her with her medical issue, which is that she is losing control of her ability to phase through matter and might permanently disappear. Finally, a criminal named Sonny Burch (Walton Goggins) is trying to steal the Pym’s tech as well. These reflect the major themes of the movie. The Pyms want to re-unite their family by rescuing Janet van Dyne. As an extension of that Lang wants to reconcile with the Pyms who were angry with him for taking his suit and fighting with Cap. Last, Ghost wants redemption and to save herself. She was recruited by SHIELD to do all kinds of undercover and underhanded operations. She’s done with all that and she simply wants to be able to live her life.

Like the first Ant Man movie Luis (Michael Pena) and Hank provide the laughs. Hank is still full of witty and sarcastic one-liners mostly aimed at Lang. Luis continued with his fast paced and hectic banter and funny stories. He steals every scene he’s in.

There are plenty of other Marvel Easter Eggs in the movie as well. Ghost’s dad is Elihas Starr who was known as the villain Egghead. Bill Foster mentions that he and Hank worked on a growth serum while they were at SHIELD and he was known as Goliath. That was actually Black Goliath a great and very short lived series who would appear in various other comics throughout the years.

If you liked the first Ant Man movie you’ll like the sequel because it is just as good.
