TV & FILM

This summer's Ant-Man and the Wasp will be the last Marvel movie until March's Captain Marvel, so it'll be your last chance in 2018 to get your Marvel fix. The only thing we know about the film so far is that it takes place in the time leading up to Thanos' attack in Infinity War, so I imagine that the snap at the end of that film will factor into this film's third act.
Now that Infinity War is starting to fade at the box office, Marvel will likely spend the next month or so ramping up excitement for their next film. However, it's hard to tell how it's going to fare at the box office. The first Ant-Man did alright, opened in the mid-50 million dollar range and legged out a pretty good multiple. Brand recognition should kick in for the sequel as well, meaning that the film's built in fanbase—which didn't really exist in 2015—should help push it to a bigger box office run.
I also imagine there's going to be a ton of set-up for the next Avengers movie here as well, since Ant-Man has been spotted in multiple set photos. Rumor has it that the quantum tech explored in this film will be used to help defeat Thanos in Avengers 4. Only time will tell, but it's one thing at a time until Ant-Man and the Wasp opens on July 6.
