Here’s our first official look at Ant-Man and The Wasp.
Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lily have finally suited up for the upcoming Ant-Man sequel… and for the first time, we get to see the super-powered duo appear side-by-side.
This new image shows Scott Lang (played by Paul Rudd) alongside Hope Van Dyne (played by Evangeline Lily) in their super-suits for the first time. But it’s not all action – clearly, they find themselves confined to the laboratory for the time being as they don the shrinking suits, complete with googles, helmets and breathing apparatus.
And they look simply awesome.
Ant-Man and The Wasp will see the two iconic Marvel heroes joining forces for the first time as a crime-fighting duo… with Hope Van Dyne taking up the mantle of The Wasp, following in the footsteps of her long-lost mother, Janet Van Dyne.
And with Michelle Pfeiffer starring as the original Wasp, it looks as though the upcoming Ant-Man sequel is going to be even more of a family affair than the first movie.
That said, Marvel has been a bit cagey about the original Wasp’s role.
Here’s the official synopsis:
“From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes Ant-Man and The Wasp, a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink. In the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a super hero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym 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 the past.”
Quite how Janet Van Dyne fits into things remains to be seen.
But it sounds as though Ant-Man and The Wasp make a pretty awesome team.
Ant-Man and The Wasp stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lily, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Laurence Fishburne.
Peyton Reed will direct, based on a script by Chris McKenna, Erik Sommers, Andrew Barrer, Gabriel Ferrari, and Paul Rudd.
Ant-Man and The Wasp heads to cinemas on 3 August 2018.
