The first trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp is here, and it looks like a totally different movie than the original.
Paul Rudd is back as Ant-Man and this time he has a partner. He’s joined by Evangeline Lilly’s The Wasp. Ant-Man and the Wasp, the sequel to Rudd’s solo MCU debut, centers around Scott Lang teaming up with Hope van Dyne (Lilly) to rescue the partner of original Ant-Man Hank Pym (Michael Douglass) who is Hope’s mother Janet van Dyne. The previous Wasp, played by Michelle Pfeiffer, disappeared into the Quantum Realm, and the exploits of this new microscopic generation of heroes will lead to new revelations about the multiverse.
The trailer also features a quick shot of the antagonist of the film: Ghost. Ghost will be played by Hanna John-Kamen (Killjoys, Black Mirror) which is a departure from the comics, where the character is typically portrayed as a man… whose identity we’ve never really learned, hence the name Ghost.
Ghost kinda looks like she’s from Destiny does she not?
I’m not getting original Ant-Man vibes at all from this trailer. It feels like a very different movie. I’m excited, I know I’m in the minority here by Ant-Man is one of my favorite MCU flicks. That closing knife scene is incredible and is followed by an equally kick-ass hilarious Hello Kitty Pez dispenser scene.
Ant-Man and the Wasp comes out July 6th, 2018.
