The New Ant-Man and the Wasp Trailer Flippin' Rules


First up is Ant-Man and the Wasp, the follow up to 2015's delightful Ant-Man, which has just dropped a brand new trailer online.

Box offices around the world are now on fire thanks to Avengers: Infinity War, but the Marvel machine never sleeps, which is why the studio has already turning its eyes to the franchise next film: this summer's Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Indeed the Ant-Man sequel actually takes place before the events of Infinity War, which makes ideal sense if you've seen the Avengers sequel. Marvel Studios has already moved on from that abusive relationship and hopped into a new, more intimate and lighthearted one with Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Nonetheless, Ant-Man and the Wasp, judging by this new trailer, feels very much like an intentional antidote for, or at least alternative to, the grimness of Infinity War's downbeat ending.

Do we still care about the heroes that skipped out on "Infinity War"? It's possible this has created a domino effect where Ant-Man has had to be shifted to best maximise the two films. Michael Douglas, Michael Peña and David Dastmalchian are also back, with Peyton Reed returning to the director's chair. There's plenty of outlandish action involving both Ant-Man and Giant-Man (Lang's other, somewhat taller, identity), while Lilly's Wasp looks like she will be a great foil to Lang. But it's a lot of fun, with Paul Rudd back as Scott Lang and Evangeline Lilly getting joint-billing as Hope Pym, aka the Wasp.

"Ant-Man fought on the technically illegal side of Captain America (Chris Evans) in Civil War", says Phil Hornshaw and Phil Owen from The Wrap. Well, last month it was reported that Cassie would be appearing in Avengers 4 - however, the role won't be filled by the 10-year-old Abby Ryder Forston but by the 16-year-old Emma Fuhrmann.

They'll be joined by Michelle Pfeiffer, Laurence Fishburne, Hannah John-Kamen.

Ant-Man and the Wasp buzzes into theaters on July 6, so keep checking in with CinemaBlend for more updates on the movie.
