Armed with a super-suit with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, cat burglar Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
Edgar Wright wanted the film to be completely stand-alone, with no references to the other films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This plan did not match the studio plan for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This, among other factors, led to Wright leaving.
Howard Stark: He doesn't seem happy. Hello, Hank. You're supposed to be in Moscow.
Hank Pym: I took a detour... Through your defense lab.

The first time Scott shrinks himself, he shrinks upwards, so that his newly miniaturized body is roughly where his head was originally. This causes him to fall 5-6 feet down into the tub.

SPOILER: Mid credits scene: Hank Pym talks to his daughter, showing her a secret room in his basement, containing a prototype Wasp suit that was never completed. The two decide to resume work on it for her use.
