The Marvel Cinematic Universe shows no signs of slowing down, and either does my excitement for their movies.
Sequels have recently been giving me an eye-rolling reaction (like the 20th installment of certain vroom-vroom car movies), but each installment of the ever growing MCU fills me with excitement and awe.
Ant-Man and The Wasp brings back Paul Rudd’s lovable ex-con turned superhero Ant-Man, and in a feat that Marvel Comics struggles with, the story builds upon his adventure in Captain America: Civil War while also continuing the story laid-out in the first Ant-Man movie. Wow, crossovers hardly ever play into the main narrative of a character in the comic books but in Ant-Man and The Wasp it looks to use the major cross-over from Civil War as a fantastic jump-off point.
Enough of my talking, here’s the fantastic trailer….
All of the feats of size alteration look fun and amazing AND Evangeline Lilly’s Wasp looks amazing. Damn, Black Panther is right around the corner…now this, can’t wait!
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.
