Big surprises come in small packages.

In a teaser video, Disney made the big announcement that “Ant-Man and the Wasp” officially started shooting:


Paul Rudd reprises his role as Scott Lang a.k.a. Ant-Man while Evangeline Lilly recurs as Hope Van Dyne and will premiere as the Wasp in the movie.

The story occurs after “Captain America: Civil War,” where Ant-Man showed off his larger-than-life self as Giant-Man in the conflict between Captain America and Iron Man. Scott Lang once again juggles parenthood and being a superhero when Hope and Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) call him on a mission.

In the 2017 Comic-Con, critically acclaimed actress Michelle Pfeiffer was revealed as the Wasp’s mother, Janet Van Dyne.

Lilly was excited, to say the least:
