It seems that excitement just doesn’t end for Marvel fans out there! This year’s Comic-Con has come and gone, and despite all the big reveals, there still seems to be more news in store.
“From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink: “Ant-Man and The Wasp.” In the aftermath of “Captain America: Civil War,” Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a Super Hero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) and Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) 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 their past.”
This will be the first film to follow Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, and while it isn’t mentioned in the film’s plot summary, it will be interesting to see if Scott Lang is at all impacted by the events of Marvel’s superhero ensemble.
Also, while it doesn’t get into specifics, it may be safe to assume that the Marvel sequel will take influence from other super hero films like Spider-Man 2 or Iron Man 2, in which the main character has to wrestle with the responsibilities of not only being a hero, but also being human.
Certainly, that’s a tall task. Unless you’re Ant-Man. Then maybe it’s a small one. We don’t know. Probably difficult either way.
Ant Man and the Wasp hits theaters on July 6, 2018.
