Here’s what we know about the story so far:
In the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang, aka Ant-Man (Rudd) is left facing the consequences of his actions as both a superhero and a father. When he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne (Lilly) and Dr. Hank Pym (Douglas) with an urgent new mission, Scott must once again put on his Ant-Man suit and learn to fight alongside The Wasp. As the team works together, they’ll uncover secrets from their past.

The director of photography is Dante Spinotti. The visual effects supervisor is Doctor Strange’s Stephane Ceretti. And the special effects supervisor is Dan Sudick, who worked on Captain America: Civil War and is a seven-time Academy Award nominee!
