The third Ant-Man movie is titled Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania‘s Plot

Marvel released the movie’s synopsis at San Diego Comic-Con, along with an exclusive tease for the convention audience. The synopsis states:

Super Hero partners Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) return to continue their adventures as Ant-Man and The Wasp. Together, with Hope’s parents Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), the family finds themselves exploring the Quantum Realm, interacting with strange new creatures and embarking on an adventure that will push them beyond the limits of what they thought was possible.

The footage at Comic-Con showed that Scott wrote a book called Look Out for the Little Guy! He’s apparently not been quiet about how he helped save the world.

We get to see a little bit into Scott Lang’s Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania life in the first official trailer for the movie. And we also get sucked right into Quantum Realm, where we encounter all manner of interesting things… Including Kang the Conquerer.
