There would have been a lot of hype around Marvel's latest superhero flick, Ant-Man and the Wasp, regardless of recent events. Its predecessor was really good, and Paul Rudd shines as a lighthearted hero (slash ex-con) that injects some levity into a comic book universe that is sometimes a bit serious.

But considering this is the first Marvel Cinematic Universe movie in a post-Avengers: Infinity War world, a lot of people have been asking: How will Ant-Man deal with the repercussions of Thanos?

**Minor spoilers ahead for Ant-Man and the Wasp, major spoilers for Infinity War, which you should really go see if you haven't already.**

'Avengers: Infinity War' assembles a massive mashup in a long film that gives you no time to breathe (A-)

The answer? Ant-Man doesn't grapple with the aftermath of "The Snap" at all, because the events of the movie take place before the third Avengers movie. 

We do see why Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) hasn't been hanging out with his superhuman buddies in the past couple of years: He's been under house arrest. But the only real reminder we have about the larger-than-comics world outside Lang's microcosm is some brief mentions of the events of Captain America: Civil War. In that movie, Ant-Man sided with Captain America during a big set-piece fight in Germany, marking him as a criminal with the U.S. Government.

There is no mention of destruction in New York, of an invasion in Wakanda or of the Avengers needing backup. Lang has his own problems to deal with from the start until the credits roll.

But you should stay after those credits.

We'll have a full review of Ant-Man and the Wasp next week.
