SPOILER WARNING: If these theories turn out to be true! Oh, and spoiler's for Infinity War- I mean, it's been out for like 2 months now so where have you been, go and see it NOW!
Since the brutal ending to this summer's Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel fans have been scratching their heads as to how Ant-Man and the Wasp will fit into the MCU timeline, and whether it will finish much like the events of Avengers 3- at least there won't be too much dust to wipe up.
We've been told in multiple press releases and presumed from the trailers that the events of Ant-Man and the Wasp will be set between Captain America: Civil War (2016) and Avengers: Infinity War (2018), but how close to the snapping of the fingers will our two tiny friends get? Who will bite the dust? Let's discuss.
The sequel to 2015's Ant-Man (Out on 6th July 2018 in US, 3rd August 2018 in UK- yes, it's crazy), takes place in San Francisco, away from the major action of 'Infinity War' and leaving Scott (Paul Rudd) and Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), also known as the Wasp, more or less scot free- see what I did there? We have some sense of what that might be: First, we know from casting information that the plot of the film will concern the search for the original Wasp, Janet van Dyne, who will be played by Michelle Pfeiffer. Fans will recall that in 'Ant-Man', Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) told the story about how Janet was lost in the “Quantum Realm” — the space between molecules and somewhere we could be revisiting in Avengers 4. In order to stop a missile from hitting the U.S, Janet removed the regulator from her suit, which put a limit on how small she would shrink, and became so small she was able to fit between the molecules of the missile.
Janet disarmed the missile, but without her regulator she was unable to return to her normal size. As Pym explained it, she was lost in the Quantum Realm, shrinking forever and unable to escape that strange, tiny universe. But Scott managed to shrink down to the Quantum Realm during the climax of “Ant-Man,” and proved it was possible to return from it. And with Pfeiffer cast as a present day Janet, it seems she’ll be returning from there too.
Based upon filming pictures, Ant Man definitely survives the events of his second solo outing, and it seems he will get a much bigger role in Avengers 4 as he spends time on set with the survivors of the snap. However, in recent concept art released/leaked (see below), for the upcoming Avengers movie, only Ant Man appears- where is his female counterpart? Could she be the victim of Thanos? It would certainly provide for a great ending and a perfect reason for Scott to become more involved with the original characters left behind. Only time will tell.

Bad Times at the El Royale
This is a film that some fans have dreamed off for ages, and some fans never wanted. Star Wars is currently going through a rough patch due to the divide after 'The Last Jedi' and this film is no different, dividing the fan base yet again. It is an enjoyable movie, bringing the fun back to Star Wars after becoming really serious after 'The Force Awakens' and 'The Last Jedi.'
The film starts off rocky, due to the pacing being off, as it starts off slow, then jumps straight into a chase which doesn't fit at that point of the movie. The film doesn't really know how to set up the start of the story, and certain parts aren't explained very well. You are thrown into a relationship straight of the bat and expected to care about it even though you haven't been introduced to the characters properly yet.
The Stand out character for act one was Chewy for me. I really liked the way they introduced the character and how his relationship with Han developed. Personally the film started to improve when he was introduced as it made Han more complete, like the character we know from the original trilogy, as it didn't feel right while he was on his own.
Act Two is when the film started to find its footing. The objective of the film is revealed and we meet Paul Bettany's villainous Dryden Vos and the Crimson Dawn. Lando is introduced in the best possible through a game of Sabacc. This is also where we meet Phoebe Waller-Bridge's L3-37. Seeing the Millenium Falcon pristine is so satisfying and watching Lando at the helm is exciting. The problem with act two is that it focused on development of certain characters over others which retracted from emotional value later on in the film. Solo's relationship with Qi'ra seems forced and there isn't as much chemistry between them as there should be considering how long they have known each other, there was more chemistry between L3-37 and Lando than there was Solo and Qi'ra.
The stand out character in act two is Lando. Donald Glover does a great job as the smooth talking smuggler. Lando hasn't been on our screens since Return of the Jedi in 1983 and after this film we want more from him. He is the most consistent character throughout the film being tremendous all the way through. The sparks of the great relationship between Han and Lando start off in this film, and hopefully it is not the last we see of him.
The third and final act was the best one. The film really came into its own as the film ties everything together. There are shocks and turns which people won't see coming. Beckett's(Woody Harrelson) mentoring of Han throughout the film shows as the character's development changes a lot from the start of the film. Enfys Nest is a really interesting character that is explored and has some really badass moments. The film ends off as the beginning of something special, and with a scene nobody could have expected, hopefully there are more great interconnected anthology movies on there way, with the speculated Obi Wan movie and confirmed Boba Fett movie we could see some character interactions we never knew happened.
The stand out character in the third act was Han Solo. Alden really grew into the role really well, Solo's unique mannerisms were there and pulled of spectacularly. At first we were hesitant of Alden's casting but it turned out for the better. There would have been backlash with whoever they cast as younger Han, so all Alden could of done was his best, and did did it brilliantly towards the end of the film.
Thank you so much for reading our Solo spoiler free review, why not check out John Williams 'The adventures of Han' which is really well composed for this film! Please share your thoughts in the comments and we would appreciate it if you returned for our next post! :)
