Ant-Man was kind of a surprise hit.
Of course, Paul Rudd is charismatic as all hell, but after the Edgar Wright fiasco (I still wish we got that movie) no one was quite sure how it would turn out. $180 million domestically with 519 million worldwide, and it turned out alright. Black Panther comes out in 2 weeks with the Avengers: Infinity War film after that one, and one question everyone had was where is the Ant-Man trailer, and why isn’t he in the Infinity War trailer?
Well we can answer one of those questions today. ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ first trailer was dropped today, and it’s going to be fun. Scott Lang aka Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) gets out of jail with some FBI monitoring, and Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) are on the run as well. Luckily with Pym tech and the ability to shrink things, that’s a little easier. We are also introduced to Hope’s superhero character “The Wasp” with all the abilities of Ant-Man plus flight and blasters. The trailer has questions, like what is the vehicle that shrinks, and a short glimpse of the main villain. Thomas the Tank Engine may not be in this movie, but a giant Hello Kitty Pez dispenser is, and that has us excited.
‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ releases July 6, 2018.
