Ant-Man and The Wasp Trailer
In honor of Free Comic Book Day, a new Ant-Man and The Wasp trailer was released earlier this week.
When my daughter was a preschooler, she and my husband 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.

Ant-Man and the Wasp Trailer
From what I have read, Ant-Man and the Wasp takes place before Infinity War so it is not affected by those events. There is definitely no hint of the major upheaval caused by Infinity War in the trailer. Since these characters do not appear in Infinity War, the timeline shift is not an issue.
After seeing the teaser, my daughter commented that it did not seem as funny as Ant-Man. She is happy to report that this trailer shows the humor is back.
I am still a bit disappointed that there was not a glimpse of Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet Van Dyne. Although Laurence Fishburne makes an appearance as Goliath.
