Before audiences have even had time to catch their breaths from Avengers: Infinity War, we already have another Marvel movie on the platter to be excited about. The first trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp dropped today and it already looks promising. Since the adventure takes place before the events of Infinity War, sadly it will not any answer questions one might have over the Avengers 4 but hey, at least it'll be spoiler free!
The film chronologically takes place after Captain America: Civil War where Scott Lang returns to be with his family as opposed to joining the bandwagon of underground superheroes. In the trailer, one can see Hope Pym, played by Evangeline Lilly and her father Hank played by Michael Douglas needing Lang to return as Ant-Man.
Hannah John-Kamen then stars as the film’s antagonist, portraying Ghost, while Michael Peña is back as Louis. Michelle Pfeiffer joins the cast as Hank’s presumed-dead wife, Janet Van Dyne and although it doesn’t properly introduce Janet, as we might have expected, the new footage does lay out the threat posed by The Ghost and offers more of the fledgeling partnership of Ant-Man and The Wasp in action.
Oh, plus, there’s Laurence Fishburne as Dr Bill Foster a.k.a Goliath, a former partner of Hank Pym, who confirms his involvement in the “Goliath project”. The trailer ends with Foster and Lang competing over who was able to grow to the largest size with Lang crossing the finish line by 44 feet! Really, that’s all anyone needs.
With Avengers: Infinity War dealing with the end of the world level events, by contrast, Ant-Man and the Wasp looks to be much more light and fun.It will be the last Marvel movie in an unusually long time, as we won't see Captain Marvel until early next year. And in all honesty, it's probably going to be a happier place to leave the MCU than Infinity War.
Helmed by Peyton Reed, written by Chris McKenna, Erik Sommers, Paul Rudd, Andrew Barrer, Gabriel Ferrari and John Hubar and also starring Walton Goggins the film opens on July 6.
