There exists a great deal of potential in Marvel Studios’ upcoming Ant-Man And The Wasp. Not only will it wind up being the company’s first film with a titular female character, and the first to feature eponymous co-leads, but there is the opportunity to build upon what worked in Ant-Man, and work to avoid what didn’t. It’s this that has spurred us on to make this list of what we want to see in the 2018 sequel.

Because the movie is so early in development, not really much is known about Ant-Man And The Wasp beyond the fact that it will bring back both Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly in their established roles. If the film winds up functioning as we would expect it to function, however, there are a total of seven things that we hope that the feature decides to include.

Ant-Man And The Wasp
More Flashbacks
The flashbacks featured in Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man were mostly used to set up the modern day-set plot – giving the audience insight into to both who Dr. Hank Pym is and who he used to be – but here’s hoping that was merely an appetizer for a full course meal in Ant-Man And The Wasp. Because there are actually two duos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe now who have gone by the nicknames featured in the title, it would truly be great to see more flashbacks in the follow-up, but for the sequel to dedicate half of its runtime to a story set in the 1970s featuring the adventures of Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne - parallel a plot featuring Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne.

It would surely be a lot of work to recreate the CGI magic of Ant-Man’s opening scene on a much larger scale – which would be necessary if young Hank Pym played a more significant part – but it would be worth it. I would love to see Marvel take a Nick and Nora Charles-esque approach to the period spy duo and fully explore an era that we really haven’t seen much of in the MCU.
