Marvel Studios is back with Ant-Man and the Wasp.
Marvel’s diminutive hero, Ant-Man, returns for his follow-up film, Ant-Man, and the Wasp. Following the events of Captain America Civil War (and before the events of Avengers Infinity War) Scott Lang, played by Paul Rudd, must deal with the repercussions of helping Captain America and is placed under house arrest. Lang must contend with his responsibilities as a father while trying to help mentor, Hank Pym. As secrets from Pym’s past come back to haunt him, Lang must once again don the mantle of Ant-Man. However, this time he is aided by Pym’s daughter Hope Van Dyne, aka The Wasp.
Ant-Man and the Wasp is the twentieth film in the long and successful Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film is directed by Peyton Reed and written by the writing teams of Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, and Paul Rudd, Andrew Barrer, and Gabriel Ferrari. It stars Rudd as Lang and Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne, alongside Michael Peña, Walton Goggins, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Tip “T.I.” Harris, David Dastmalchian, Hannah John-Kamen, Abby Ryder Fortson, Randall Park, Michelle Pfeiffer, Laurence Fishburne, and Michael Douglas.
Here is the synopsis of Marvel Studios Ant-Man and the Wasp:
As Scott Lang balances being both a Super Hero and a father, Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym present an urgent new mission that finds the Ant-Man fighting alongside The Wasp to uncover secrets from their past.
The trailer begins with Scott Lang, The Ant-Man sitting with his daughter, Cassie. She questions him about how long he has been a superhero. Cassie aspires to fight the bad guys as her dad does. During the conversation, Ant-Man is shown growing to the size of the street light. Ant-Man is hot on the heels of some crazed gunmen.
Scott reveals to Cassie that he messes things up more than anything else. Cassie suggests that maybe he just needs someone to watch his back. Wasp is then seen exploding into a car as she quickly shrinks and grows back to normal size with ease. She quickly dispatches some criminals who futile try to escape.
The trailer reintroduces Michael Pena’s Luis character who is speaking with Hank Pym. Luis crudely reveals Pym had discovered the quantum realm and that a new criminal who can walk through walls stole his tech. The villain Luis is referring to is the sequel’s villain, Ghost, played by Hannah John-Kamen. Ghost is revealed in a white Pym designed costume capable of phasing through walls. She forcefully kicks Ant-Man through a wall.
Luis is shocked to see Hank Pym turn to him and his crew in his greatest hour of need. The same crew who originally tried to steal from Pym in the first Ant-Man film. Pym divulges to Scott that the only hope he has is to team up with his daughter, Hope, to stop this new threat.
A series of action scenes are shown depicting Ant-Man and the Wasp working in unison to beat down an array of criminals. The trailer ends with Scott, Hope, and Hank meeting with Dr. Bill Foster played by Laurence Fishburne. Foster explains he used to work with Hank on a project called “Goliath.” Scott asks how big Foster got to which he responds twenty-one feet. Scott smugly responds he got to sixty-five feet. Ant-Man is then depicted rising out of a bay towering over a boat.
Ant-Man and the Wasp arrive in theaters July 6th, 2018.
