Ant-Man and the Wasp
Along with Hank Pym(Michael Douglas) and Janet Van Dyne(Michelle Pfeiffer), Scott Lang(Paul Rudd) and Hope Van Dyne(Evangeline Lilly) travel the Quantum Realm. There, they encounter with odd species and go on a journey that defies their preconceived notions of what is possible. Yes, Scott and his in-laws will engage on an adventure. Imagine how awkward will it be?
With Avengers: Infinity War now technically behind us, all eyes are on the next official Marvel Cinematic Universe film. In this case, Ant-Man And The Wasp. This is a big film for the MCU not because of story per se or its “timeline” relevancy (which is still up in the air), but rather, it’s the first MCU film to feature a female character in the title. And as this brand new trailer shows, Wasp definitely earns that honor.
So, after Avengers Infinity War, the next Marvel film to arrive will be Ant-Man and The Wasp. This film is significant for many reasons, including the fact that the film is the first to have a female character in the title, as well as a lead role. Given the events of the first film, and lines from the first trailer, many who have access to the film have noted that this will be “Marvel’s first romantic comedy”. Apparently, that’s not accurate.
Yesterday we speculated that Marvel’s Ant-Man And The Wasp trailer might possibly come tomorrow, which is today. Today the Ant-Man And The Wasp trailer did indeed appear, as we theorized it would yesterday. We’re good.
Tonight, the World Premiere of Black Panther happened, and at the red carpet event, a “special” teaser for one of the two other Marvel Studios movies coming this year was present. Mainly, a pint-sized teaser for Ant-Man and The Wasp. As you’ll see in the video below the “teaser” indicated that a trailer for the film is coming tomorrow, which would be a treat for sure ahead of Black Panthers release on February 16th.
The Ant-Man film was one made with much controversy. The main character wasn’t going to be Hank Pym (who is a founding member of the Avengers in the comics), but rather, Scott Lang. Then, there was the switching of directors from Edgar Wright to Peyton Reed. Despite it all, the movie did decently at the box office, and led to not only a sequel via Ant-Man And The Wasp (which comes out next year) but Ant-Man appearing in Captain America: Civil War, where many things happened.
Avengers 4 is said to open the gateway to not just new characters, but new worlds and even multiverses, something that Marvel is known for. But, it could be that one of next years Marvel films, Ant-Man and The Wasp, could truly be the start of those new universes. For one of the stars, Evangeline Lilly, spoke with Vanity Fair about what’s going to happen, and how it’s a bit familiar to her.
Ant-Man and The Wasp is going to be one of Marvel’s big movies next year, and with it comes the first Marvel film to have female lead in the name. At San Diego Comic Con, many new things were revealed about the film, including new co-stars with will include Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet Van Dyne.
When the original Ant-Man film debuted, a lot of changes were done that some fans weren’t happy about. The man in the Ant-Man suit was not Hank Pym, but rather Scott Lang, and instead of Janet Van Dyne as The Wasp, we found out she “disappeared” and Hope Van Dyne, her and Pym’s daughter was going to take the reins. Well, at the Marvel Studios panel at San Diego Comic Con, we found out that the upcoming sequel Ant-Man and The Wasp is going to have us see Janet…and it’s Michelle Pfeiffer.
Ant-Man and The Wasp is meant to be a very significant film in the MCU. First off, it’s the first film in the MCU to have a female lead in the title, and, it’s one of the few Phase 3 movies that will deal with the fallout of Civil War before Infinity War.
The desire, and possibly need, to get more female characters into the true leading spotlight for both Marvel and DC is all too apparent. DC has a small lead as they’re bringing Wonder Woman to theaters next year, and Supergirl has her own TV show. Marvel though has Agent Carter on TV, and is bringing Captain Marvel to theaters. But for Marvel, the first headline female lead will be Hope Van Dyne, aka the Wasp. Who debuted in last years Ant-Man, and will share a movie with him in 2018. When asked by IGN whether The Wasp might get her own solo film, he responded thusly:
