With Black Panther and Infinity War to go before the release of Ant-Man and the Wasp, the latter is beginning to feel a bit like the redheaded stepchild of the MCU. However, it seems that that's all part of the plan as the MCU is going to experience a major shift following the events of Infinity War, and they need to keep certain things under wraps. 

No one knows this better than Evangeline Lilly—who will become the first female superhero in the Marvel Universe to get her character's name in a title—who has given us our first hints of what to expect from the upcoming MCU sequel. In a comprehensive article in Vanity Fair, Lilly speaks alongside many other members of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and had this to say...

"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 déjà 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."

So it looks like "going subatomic" is going to be a major part of the sequel and may eventually play some part in defeating a villain in a future Avengers movie. Cool. Ant-Man and the Wasp hits theaters on July 6, 2018.
