Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), daughter of original Ant-Man Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), is given the mantle of Wasp, a superhero who posses a similar suit as Ant-Man but with wings. They also revisit talks about the quantum realm, which will most likely play a major role in this next movie (and maybe even Infinity War?).

But as McFeely's writing partner Markus pointed out, Ant-Man the character just didn't jibe with the ultimately dark and serious outcome of Infinity War - especially with the character;s cheery sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp, opening just a few months later.
Of course, it makes more sense to leave those details vague, so as not to give away any plot twists that occurred in Infinity War.
Marvel Studios is ridiculously self-aware, and they have been planning these movies out for quite some time. As the trailer reveals, the sequel's set shortly after the events of Captain America: Civil War, and its story deals with Scott Lang facing the consequences of going against the Sokovia Accords. Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Abby Ryder Fortson, Tip "T.I". I mean the movie probably won't be awful (these are Marvel movies we're talking about), but I doubt the kids will be tugging on their parents' shirts to get tickets for the midnight screening of....the Ant-Man sequel.
