Update: One day after a new poster for Ant-Man and the Wasp was released, a new trailer that sets up the next chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has arrived. Set after the events of Captain America: Civil War, Ant-Man and the Wasp looks to be on par with the first Ant-Man movie in terms of fun. The original story continues below.
Now that Avengers: Infinity War is in theaters, Marvel Studios is wasting no time in getting fans ready for the next chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Ant-Man and the Wasp is coming in just over two months, and a new poster has been released–with a trailer on the way. Warning: The rest of this story contains spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War. If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s best to stop reading right now.
It’s unclear exactly when in the MCU timeline Ant-Man and the Wasp is set–other than sometime after Ant-Man. That said, perhaps the trailer will shed a little light on whether it is being impacted by what happened in Infinity War. While it was explained that Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) cut a deal with the government to go home after Captain America: Civil War, he’s supposed to be under house arrest. There’s also that pesky thing where half of the universe turned to dust.
Still, based on the poster, it looks like those important to Scott remain intact–inducing Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), and Luis (Michael Pena). Where Hope is concerned, that’s especially important as she becomes the Wasp in this film–taking on the mantle originally held by her mother, Janet (Michelle Pfeiffer).
The poster also includes a look at the movie’s villain, Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen), as well as characters portrayed by Laurence Fishburne and Walton Goggins. Hopefully, the new trailer that’s releasing on Tuesday (May 1) will give more insight into their roles in the film.
While you won’t have to wait long for the trailer, which will hopefully include some answers, you’ll still have to wait until July 6 to see Ant-Man and the Wasp in theaters.
