Previously, Scott Lang had shrunk into the Quantum Realm, a dimension where space and time are irrelevant. In the trailer, Ghost was shown using the dimension to “walk through walls”, according to news website Inverse. What’s more, only Ant Man and Wasp can enter the dimension. The film owes an explanation of how Ghost can enter it.
By the looks of the trailer, Scott’s pal Luis is shown as he’s promoted for a job or runs a company. His character trait also reflects on the events that occurred after ‘Captain America: Civil War’, Scott Lang getting jailed also meant he had to hang up his suit. This goes to show that the sequel’s timeline is years after Civil War.
