Big news for the movie about the little guy – we have a trailer and a poster for Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp, due to be released on July 6, 2018.
We open with a conversation between Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) about her willingness to assist the Avengers and Captain America’s team (presumably regarding the events in Captain America: Civil War) if he had asked, and her answer is simple, straightforward, and utterly badass: “I guess we’ll never know… but if you had, you’d have never been caught.”
From there, it’s a pastiche of awesome action and special effects (Hank Pym shrinking a building to the size of a rolling suitcase! Wasp walking on the blade of a knife! Oversized Pez dispensers in midair!) with a hint of the plot (looks like we’re going subatomic again, presumably to bring back Hope’s mother, the original Wasp), and a side of jealousy of who got wings and blasters, and who didn’t. And yes, music fans – that is “Ants Invasion” by Adam and the Ants you’re hearing, which director Peyton Reed confirmed on Twitter this morning.
We get a few dispersed shots of Hannah John-Kamen as the masked menace Ghost, and a single shot of Laurence Fishburne as Bill Foster, who seems to be involved in her creation. There’s also only one shot of everyone’s favorite storyteller Luis (Michael Pena) but he is confirmed for the cast list – and maybe the next trailer will just be him describing the action. (I’ll watch it.)
I was excited for a Marvel movie to come out for my birthday weekend, and based on this trailer, I couldn’t ask for a better present.
Check out the poster below and let us know your thoughts in the comments!
