Ant-Man and The Wasp has had it’s first trailer released and it’s looking pretty damn solid. With Black Panther out in a few weeks time, Infinity war on the way in April (May for America, suck it!), it’s going to be a huge year for Marvel. Starting with a few references to Scott Lang’s (Paul Rudd) last MCU appearance in Captain America: Civil War, it picks up shortly after being broken out of prison by Steve Rogers. Despite now having a FBI sanctioned monitor on his ankle, he’s continuing his escapades as the tiny hero but now he has Evangeline Lilly’s Hope van Dyne / The Wasp by his side after her suit was teased at the end of the first Ant-Man. It’s not clear what the plot is exactly however there are moments from their past about to be uncovered after Ant-Man is assigned an urgent mission by Pym.
Returning are Rudd and Lilly, as well as Michael Douglas as Dr. Hank Pym, Michael Peña as the superbly hilarious Luis and Judy Greer as Maggie Lang. Joining the ironically large cast are Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet van Dyne, Laurence Fishburne as Dr. Bill Foster / Goliath (an ally of Hank Pym’s) and Hannah John-Kamen as Ghost. Peyton Reed, who did a great job in the time he had with the previous film has returned to direct, with Paul Rudd once again getting a writing credit, as well as Chris McKenna, Erik Sommers, Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari. Ant-Man and The Wasp is due for release in July and it will be the MCU’s 20th film. That’s certainly nothing small. Check out the trailer below:
Keep. It. Reel.
