Ant-Man was a pretty wonderful breath of fresh air in the Marvel Cinematic Universe when it landed back in 2015. The too-long and too-serious Avengers: Age of Ultron had just been released and it was considered by many to fall short of its predecessor. Then comes the quirky and inventive Ant-Man, which took so many of the tropes that they had established in the MCU and put them on their head. Hopefully we’ll see some similar storytelling in the sequel.
From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink: Ant-Man and The Wasp. In the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) 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 (Evangeline Lilly) and Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) 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 their past.
Ant-Man and the Wasp is set to open in theaters on July 6, 2018.
