How The “Ant-Man” Sequel Compares To “Lost”

Story details regarding the upcoming sequel “Ant-Man and The Wasp” remain under wraps for the most part beyond only the most basic synopsis and casting details.

Now, in a new interview for Vanity Fair as part of a larger Marvel Studios feature, actress Evangeline Lilly was asked about Disney CEO Bob Iger’s comments about the MCU expanding into new areas. Her response hints at a key detail of the “Ant-Man” sequel’s plot:

“When I heard about Infinity War and the direction that they’re heading, I did have this moment of realizing, oh, wow, there’s a bit of a deja vu for me with the Lost franchise. We are hitting that (Lost) Season 4 space where everything’s about to shift, and you’re about to lose the solid ground underneath you. And (Ant-Man and the Wasp), of course, will play a part in that.)’

Those characters are experts in the quantum realm. In Ant-Man and the Wasp, they are trying everything in their power to safely enter the quantum realm and return back from it because they have evidence from the first film that Scott Lang was able to do that. If he can do it, why can’t we?

If we do succeed in ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp,’ then that does open a whole entire new multi-verse to enter into and play around in. I’m not the story creator, so I can’t tell you what they’re going to do with that. But I definitely see the potential there.”

Michelle Pfeiffer stars in the film as Janet Van Dyne, the original Wasp who was lost in the quantum realm. “Ant-Man and The Wasp” is set for a release on July 6th next year.
