Considering its incredibly troubled production history (Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish bailing on Marvel due to those pesky creative differences after they’d completed huge amounts of work on the project) 2015’s Ant-Man turned out to be way more fun than it had any right to be.
Now the sequel, again helmed by Peyton Reed, looks set to continue in the same vein, if the newly released trailer is anything to go by.
Nicely picking up the story of Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) as left dangling in Captain America: Civil War, Ant Man & The Wasp now sees the diminutive (sometimes not-so-diminutive) hero partnered with, as the title suggests, Evangeline Lily’s Hope van Dyne, A.K.A. The Wasp.
The trailer is incredibly breezy and suggests the producers have retained the previous film’s smart move to keep things more (sorry) small scale.
Ant-Man & The Wasp opens July 6th, not long after the studio’s much anticipated double-punch of Black Panther, followed by Avengers: Infinity War.
