New Ant-man And The Wasp Trailer Delivers Massive Marvel Thrills

Adjust Comment Print

Set after Captain America: Civil War and before Avengers: Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp will see Scott Lang under house arrest due to siding with Steve Rogers during Civil War. They had just delivered a record-breaking box office business with last week's release Avengers: Infinity War and a few minutes ago the new trailer of their upcoming offering Ant-Man and The Wasp is here. But that hasn't stopped us from speculating about it! Even teasers released the day before this trailer pushed us to ask where Ant-Man was during Infinity War. The video begins with, "After Avengers: Infinity War, one question remains..." at which point Scarlet appears and puts forward the question. And, finally, here's our run-down on how the comic book version of these events played out. I'm not the story creator, so I can't tell you what they're going to do with that. At the very least, the action seems a lot stronger this time around with the double-team of Ant-Man and the Wasp getting more time to show off the possibilities of shrinking/growing tech. I won't get into any spoilers here, but after Infinity War, some fans may be in need of a bit of a palate cleanser. As such, it's a smart move: Appealing to those who may have been turned off by the potential loss of their favorite heroes, while also (in theory) showcasing the tonal diversity available in Marvel movies: "We can do cosmic drama and goofy comedy!"

The Plot: From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes Ant Man and the Wasp, a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink. But while Foster only got up to 21 feet, Paul Rudd's Scott Lang boasts about reaching 65 feet as Giant-Man. Fortunately, those same clever special effects are back for Ant-Man and The Wasp.

Ant-Man and the Wasp - the first Marvel movie with a female superhero in the title - opens July 6. Harris, David Dastmalchian, Hannah John-Kamen, Abby Ryder-Fortson, Randall Park, with Michelle Pfeiffer, with Laurence Fishburne, and Michael Douglas.
