‘Ant-Man and The Wasp’: New Trailer Has Web Buzzing


Small heroes. Big buzz! The full trailer for Marvel’s Ant-Man and The Wasp just debuted online, and everyone is focused on Evangeline Lilly’s character, The Wasp.

Lilly plays Hope Van Dyne, the daughter of Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfieffer). Her parents are the original Ant-Man and Wasp.

In the first film, Hope is tasked with training thief Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) how to fight and use the Ant-Man suit’s shrinking technology to his advantage.

In the sequel, she fights alongside her trainee, having inherited her mother’s suit.

Like Ant-Man, she has the power to shrink herself. But the Wasp can also fly, which adds a whole new dimension of fun and fighting techniques.

The Wasp is the first female superhero to get mentioned by name in a Marvel Cinematic Universe title. 2019’s Captain Marvel, starring  Brie Larson, will be the first female-led film.

Ant-Man and the Wasp follows the massive MCU crossover Avengers: Infinity War, which comes out in May. The next film in the universe is Black Panther, which opens this February.

In fact, this trailer was announced during the world premiere for Black Panther. The red carpet featured a small placard, when zoomed shows the film’s logo and a message that said “trailer tomorrow.”

Ant-Man and the Wasp opens in theaters on July 6, 2018.
