The sequel to the really fun Ant-Man, Ant-Man and The Wasp looks like it will take the size-manipulating fun of the original to a new, awesome level. Shrinking buildings, supersized Hello Kitty Pez dispensers, what more do you want? I just hope that ankle bracelet has something special about it. Otherwise, what’s the point?
Ant-Man and The Wasp takes place after Captain America: Civil War and will see Scott Lang team with Hope van Dyne and Hank Pym to uncover hidden secrets, yadda yadda yadda. We know what we’re really here for. We’re here to watch Evangeline Lilly put on the Wasp costume and kick some ass. Thankfully, this first trailer gives us not only a lot of The Wasp but focuses predominantly on her.
While I prefer the suit we saw in the original to this bland X2 black (and we’ll all have opinions on boob armor), it was still awesome to see her in action. She dances on knives, has wings and blasters, and is generally awesome. I can’t blame Scott for being jealous. I would be, too. Considering the plot will revolve in some way around rescuing her mother, I’m expecting a lot of Wasp ass-kicking in this movie.
Ant-Man and The Wasp hits theaters on July 6. Hopefully, Black Panther and Infinity War don’t suck away all of its audience, and I doubt it will. Marvel and Disney rule the world, after all.
So what do you think of our first in-action look at The Wasp? Is the costume a big deal or not? Speak up in the comments.
