Well these past couple days have been ones full of excitement for Marvel Studios! Last night was the world premiere of BLACK PANTHER!! Go check out the hashtag #BlackPantherEvent to see all the fun. And today, the NEW official trailer for ANT-MAN AND THE WASP hit the internet! What is even cooler is that a few of my bloggy friends went on a #SecretSetVisit to check out the film, and you can read their posts today via the hashtag #AntManAndWasp! How awesome is that?
In the ANT-MAN sequel, Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly reprise their roles to play the titled characters. The film picks up in the aftermath of CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR. We find Scott trying to balance his home life with being the superhero, Ant-Man. It’s not long before Hope and Dr. Hank Pym show up with a new mission. Only this time Ant-Man will have a new teammate… The Wasp!
So let’s get to the trailer because I’m sure that is the only reason you clicked this link!
What did you think? I LOVE all the action shots we get to see of The Wasp kicking butt and taking names! Plus Giant-Man returns!
And did you catch a glimpse of The Ghost? The Ghost rose to villainy-fame in the IRON MAN comics, and later was recruited to The Thunderbolts. However, as we know, the MCU doesn’t always stick to the comic book story-lines. The Ghost will actually be a female in this film, portrayed by Hannah John-Kamen.
However, The Ghost isn’t the only comic book “not so good guy” to appear in the film. Sonny Burch, played by Walter Goggins, is another character from the IRON MAN comics. If you recall, Sonny worked at Cross Technologies and become somewhat of a rival to Tony Stark. It will be interesting to see how he intertwines into the ANT-MAN world.
Returning for the sequel are Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lily, Academy Award® winner Michael Douglas, Michael Peña, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Abby Ryder Fortson, Tip “T.I.” Harris, and David Dastmalchian.
Joining the cast for the new film are Academy Award® nominees Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet van Dyne, the original Wasp, and Hank’s wife; and Laurence Fishburne as Bill Foster, an old friend of Hank’s who was also his assistant.
Peyton Reed returns once again to direct the latest ANT-MAN adventure, from a screenplay by Chris McKenna & Erik Sommers, Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari, and Paul Rudd.
The film, which opens in U.S. theaters on July 6, 2018.
