Reed was inspired by the films After Hours, Midnight Run and What's Up, Doc? for the look and feel of Ant-Man and the Wasp. While the first film was more of a heist film, Reed described this as part action film, part romantic comedy, and wanted this one "to be a little more of like an Elmore Leonard vibe where we have villains, but we also have antagonists, and we have these roadblocks to our heroes getting to where they need to be, and getting what they need for this mission." Regarding the opportunity for character development, Reed used the actions of Lang in Civil War to fuel potential tension between him, Pym, and Van Dyne since Pym is "very clear in the first movie about how he feels about Stark and how he feels about The Avengers and being very protective of this technology that he has."

Even though I enjoyed the first one as a comedy movie itself (and not a hero movie, more like an "introduction" movie into becoming some sort of hero), it was "ok" for me the fact that they inserted a very generic, uninteresting, forgettable villain in it (by now we always expect this kind of villain in MCU introduction movies).
Well, this time they expanded the team into Ant-man + Wasp, which was nice. But that was the only main change (besides the after-credit scene).
They still managed to create the same structure of the previous movie, instead of a "hero movie"...again a comedy movie... instead of a well developed villain, again the same uninteresting and forgettable villain.
Personally I think I lost money watching it since it was again more of the same, maybe I have should waited until it was on Netflix or something.
