The New Ant-Man and the Wasp Trailer Flippin' Rules

Adjust Comment Print

Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), daughter of original Ant-Man Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), is given the mantle of Wasp, a superhero who posses a similar suit as Ant-Man but with wings. They also revisit talks about the quantum realm, which will most likely play a major role in this next movie (and maybe even Infinity War?). Is Ant-Man and the Wasp a fitting follow-up to Avengers: Infinity War?

Ant-Man and The Wasp hits theaters on July 6, 2018.

Ant-Man And The Wasp sees Paul Rudd return as Scott Lang, who was last seen in Captain America: Civil War where he became 65 feet tall - something which he's obviously very proud of.

In it, Luis recalls that Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) went into the Quantum Realm in the first movie. It still has Paul Rudd, sure, but he's mostly there to back up The Wasp.

But as McFeely's writing partner Markus pointed out, Ant-Man the character just didn't jibe with the ultimately dark and serious outcome of Infinity War - especially with the character;s cheery sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp, opening just a few months later.

Of course, it makes more sense to leave those details vague, so as not to give away any plot twists that occurred in Infinity War.

There was a time that Ant-Man was Marvel Studios's most in-peril property, floundering without a director just weeks before shooting (and with an unfinished script).

Marvel Studios is ridiculously self-aware, and they have been planning these movies out for quite some time. As the trailer reveals, the sequel's set shortly after the events of Captain America: Civil War, and its story deals with Scott Lang facing the consequences of going against the Sokovia Accords. Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Abby Ryder Fortson, Tip "T.I". I mean the movie probably won't be awful (these are Marvel movies we're talking about), but I doubt the kids will be tugging on their parents' shirts to get tickets for the midnight screening of....the Ant-Man sequel.
