Well, here we are in the wake of the shocking ending of “Avengers: Infinity War,” already looking to the future to maybe, hopefully, get some clues about how the Avengers are gonna get themselves out of this extremely tough pickle. “Ant-Man and the Wasp” is the next movie up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe this July, and Marvel released an eye-opening new trailer Tuesday morning to emphasize that it ain’t no boring irrelevant side trip.

“Ant-Man and the Wasp,’ out July 6, tells the story of the quest by Ant-Man, Hope Van Dyne aka the Wasp and Hank Pym to find Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), who shrunk herself so small she disappeared into the so-called “Quantum Realm” 40 years ago.

The new trailer did not shed any new light on how “Ant-Man and the Wasp” will relate to the current completely mad and awesome chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so we still have, of course, many questions about that — questions that almost certainly won’t be answered until we actually see the movie in a couple months. But that hasn’t stopped us from speculating about it! You can read our examination of how exactly the events of “Ant-Man and the Wasp” will not just tie into but also be extremely important to the Avengers’ battle against Thanos right here.
