Hey, friends and fellow superhero aficionados. Today, the new trailer for the upcoming Marvel film Ant-Man and the Wasp dropped. Naturally, this is kind of a big deal for those of us who are Marvel film nuts or those of us who liked 2015’s Ant-Man, and have (not-so-patiently) been waiting on its sequel. Here’s a look at the teaser synopsis for Ant-Man and the Wasp.
Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a Super Hero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) and Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside The Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from their past. – Marvel
FILM REVIEW | ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ – An Epic End in the New Beginning
Ironically, when Ant-Man was promoted, it actually wasn’t a Marvel film I was interested in. I knew I’d see it eventually, but the rush (unlike with Thor, Avengers or my favorite, Captain America) wasn’t there. When finally I did sit down to watch the first movie, it was a kick-myself-for-waiting so long kind of reaction. I loved it. The humor, the cast and the “simpler” story line was exactly what the franchise needed.
The sequel for this follow-up sequel looks to amp up the action, and features Ant-Man and his team on the run. Returning cast includes Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Michael Peña and of course, Paul Rudd in the titular role. Despite the appearance of bigger action (I hope this isn’t to the extreme as this trend often ruins good action films), the signature humor remains in place, and leads me to hope what we loved most about the film is intact: its heart.
Ant-Man and the Wasp hits theaters July 6th!
