As promised, Marvel has unveiled the new trailer for this summer’s tiniest film, Ant-Man and the Wasp. Returning to direct the sequel is Peyton Reed, with the story following Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) as he teams up with Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) to not only fight an all-new threat, but enter the Quantum Realm to search for Hope’s mother, Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer).
Avengers: Infinity War has been the talk of everything lately. It’s everywhere, and rightfully so. But one of the bigger questions that has come with this film is where the hell characters like Ant-Man and Wasp are during its events. Now, it was recently revealed that Ant-Man and the Wasp does, in fact, take place before the events of Infinity War, and after watching this new trailer it makes complete sense. The are the events that are keeping these characters from joining the fight against Thanos in Infinity War, but also leads them to joining it in Avengers 4.
As for the trailer, it’s a really good time. I enjoyed the hell out of watching it, simply because it just knows how to have a good time. Not only is the music choice just fantastic, but the new set of footage shows off a number of cool action sequences, great character moments, and just a tease of the perfect humor that comes with this franchise. But the star of it all is Lilly’s Van Dyne character. She is a badass, to the core. I’ve been waiting years for this character to be introduced and I couldn’t be happier to see Lilly behind the mask because they looked to have absolutely nailed it.
Check out the new trailer below and make sure to leave your thoughts in the comments! Did you like it as I did? Why or why not? Do you wish they were included in Infinity War? How do you think this movie will tie into Avengers 4? Reed’s Ant-Man and the Wasp hits theaters on July 6th and also stars Michael Pena, Walter Goggins, Hannah John-Kamen, Michelle Pfeiffer, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, T.I., Randall Park, Laurence Fishburne and Michael Douglass.
