Much like the original Ant-Man, the Marvel Studios sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp keeps to itself without many connections to the rest of the events in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It allows for an lighthearted, entertaining adventure that doesn’t need a bunch of connective tissue to Avengers: Infinity War or any of the other superhero franchises. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some interesting threads to follow that could have serious ramifications for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Ant-Man and the Wasp has a couple of villains who give the titular superhero duo a run for their money. One of them is Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen), who has an affliction that keeps her quantum phasing, putting her in constant pain. She needs something from Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) in order to cure her of this peculiar malady. There’s also Sonny Burch (Walton Goggins), a shady black market tech dealer who has been helping Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) and her father gather some rare tech to find her mother Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) in the quantum realm. But he tries to turn a business deal in his own favor by making a play for Pym’s shrinking technology, apparently in the name of an unknown buyer who wants to use it for innovations in quantum energy. And that’s the mystery we want to dig into.
Who is Sonny Burch’s employer? That’s the Ant-Man and the Wasp villain mystery that remains unsolved. But there might be answers just waiting for us in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Read More »
