Now that Avengers: Infinity War has finally been released, I think it’s safe to say that we’re all feeling a bit emotional. Don’t worry, there won’t be any spoilers for that movie here but let’s just say that you should be prepared for that ending.
Lucky for us, the next film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a bit more lighthearted and is here to boost our spirits. Ant-Man And The Wasp released its second trailer on May 1st, and it looks to be the same sort of fun, superhero adventure that the first Ant-Man movie was. Ant-Man proved to be a nice twist on the superhero genre, serving more as a heist type film rather than a traditional “supervillain wants to destroy the world” type trope that these types of movies have become known for.
Starring Paul Rudd as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man, Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne aka The Wasp, Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet Van Dyne, and Hannah John-Kamen as Ghost, the plot of Ant-Man & The Wasp is as follows:
Set between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, Scott Lang, now under house arrest after the events of Civil War, tries to balance his home life as a father with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, when Hope van Dyne and Hank Pym present him with a new mission to bring to light secrets from their past, teaming up with Van Dyne as the new Wasp.
Following the release of Infinity War it remains to be seen how Ant-Man and The Wasp will fit into the Universe, but seeing that it is set before Infinity War’s events, don’t be surprised if it ends just as Infinity War begins.
