While there are still 2 Marvel movies slated for theatrical release before July, the first Ant-Man and the Wasp teaser trailer was released yesterday.
As a preschooler, my husband and daughter enjoyed the animated series The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes (2010-2012). Her favorite character was Wasp. When Ant-Man (2015) was released, she was hoping for a glimpse of Wasp. While Hope Van Dyne featured throughout the movie, the only glimpse of Wasp was her costume in a post-credits scene. The wait for Wasp ends with the release of Ant-Man and the Wasp on July 6, 2018.
About Ant-Man and the Wasp
From Disney/Marvel Studios:
From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes ANT-MAN AND THE WASP, a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink. In the aftermath of CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, Scott Lang 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 and Dr. Hank Pym 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 the past.
ANT-MAN AND THE WASP is directed by Peyton Reed and stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Pena, Walton Goggins, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Tip “T.I.” Harris, David Dastmalchian, Hannah John Kamen, Abby Ryder-Fortson, Randall Park, with Michelle Pfeiffer, with Laurence Fishburne and Michael Douglas.
Marvel Studios’ ANT-MAN AND THE WASP opens in theaters everywhere on July 6th!
Ant-Man and the Wasp Teaser Trailer
My daughter commented that a Hello Kitty Pez dispenser is like the toy Thomas the Tank Engine in the first movie. They both get made giant sized. (On that note, Ant-Man also resumes as Giant Man like he did in Captain America: Civil War).
The events of Captain America: Civil War are referenced in the teaser. Even though that movie happened 2 years ago. At least in the trailer, there is no reference to Infinity War which is being released in May (two months in advance of Ant-Man and the Wasp). Ant-Man will appear in Infinity War, but it seems that Wasp does not.
My daughter said that the trailer is less funny than the prior movie was. She’s hoping that the humor returns. I am sure that it will. I don’t recall the teaser trailer for Ant-Man being overly funny.
Unfortunately, I did not catch a glimpse of Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet Van Dyne.
The promise of seeing the trailer helped my daughter get ready for school quickly this morning!
