Earlier today, Marvel Studios revealed the new Ant-Man And The Wasp trailer, giving us our first look at both Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne in action as the titular heroes.
In the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a Super Hero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside The Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from their past.
Check out the trailer for Ant-Man And The Wasp below:
Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Peña, and Academy Award winner Michael Douglas, all return to the roles they originated in the 2015 box office hit Ant-Man. But the trailer also gives us our first look Laurence Fishburne who plays Dr. Bill Foster who becomes Gloiath, with powers similar to Hank Pym’s, increasing size and mass to gigantic proportions. Missing from the trailer is any footage of Academy-award winner Michelle Pfeffer in the role of Janet van Dyne, mother to Hope, who went missing in the Quantum Realm many years ago.
Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Abby Ryder Fortson, Tip “T.I.” Harris and David Dastmalchian also reprise their supporting roles, while Walton Goggins, and Randall Park being added to the ensemble cast. Along with newcomer Hannah John-Kamen, with whom we get our first look at in costume as Ghost.
With Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther set to debut to huge numbers in just a few weeks, and Infinity War landing in Marvel Studios’ prime early May release window, the final MCU installment of 2018 is Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man And The Wasp, being touted as the first romantic-comedy from the studio.
“The events of Captain America: Civil War gave us something clear, which is: what was Hank Pym and Hope Van Dyne’s reaction to Scott having taken this technology out into the world in Civil War?” said director Peyton Reed. “We had a lot of fun playing around with that. And we play with size and scale a lot. I love the idea of Giant-Man.” Reed added that “This is really her coming out party as a hero…Her power set is fantastic. She and Scott both shrink, but there the flying, and the fighting style of the Wasp is different from Ant-Man’s.”
Check out the super small poster for Ant-Man And The Wasp, which echoes back to the first film’s humorous motif of leaning into the comic character’s ability to shrink to microscopic size. He isn’t alone this time!
Ant-Man And The Wasp is set to open in theaters on July 6, 2018.
