'Ant-Man and the Wasp': Marvel Takes a Break From the End of the World

(Marvel Studios)

"Ant-Man and the Wasp" (out now on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital) is the sequel to 2015's "Ant-Man" and a relatively low-stakes affair after the world ended in "Avengers: Infinity War."

Scott Lang has been sidelined as part of a plea agreement after the Berlin incident from "Captain America: Civil War." Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) are on the run since Scott used their Ant-Man suit in Berlin. Everything happening in this movie is occurring at the same time as all the "Infinity War" drama.

Sonny Burch (Walton Goggins) is the regular bad guy and Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) is a suitably terrifying and misunderstood supervillain. Luis (Michael Peña), Dave (T.I.) and Kurt (David Dastmalchian) are back as Scott's crew, now partners in a security agency called X-Con.

There's a great car chase that will appeal to all first-generation Hot Wheels owners, especially ones who used the original carrying case.

The post-movie credits scene will be of great interest to Marvel fans: there's a hint that there may be a solution to the "Infinity War" disaster in next spring's Avengers movie.

There's a good number of extras, including deleted scenes, gag reel and a documentary "10 Years of Marvel Studios: The Art of the Marvel Cinematic Universe."
