Video: The first trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp is here, and I couldn’t be happier that Paul Rudd is sharing the spotlight with the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s latest smaller-than-life hero, Evangeline Lilly’s The Wasp.
Ant-Man and the Wasp, the sequel to Rudd’s solo MCU debut, centres around Scott Lang teaming up with Hope van Dyne (Lilly) to rescue the partner of original Ant-Man Hank Pym (Michael Douglass), who also just happens to be Hope’s mother Janet van Dyne. The previous Wasp, played by Michelle Pfeiffer, disappeared into the Quantum Realm, and the exploits of this new microscopic generation of heroes will lead to new revelations about the multiverse.
However, the best part of the trailer has to be finally seeing Lilly in action as the Wasp. That knife scene, damn. Ant-Man and the Wasp comes out July 5.
