WATCH: Comedy and competence in ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’
Ahead of the release of the next Ant-Man adventure, Marvel has delivered a teaser showing how Ant-Man, the Wasp, and Hank Pym might work together to track new villain Ghost and, ultimately, save the world.
Daughter of the original Ant-Man, Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), becomes a superpowered hero in her own right in “Ant-Man and the Wasp”.
Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) is still in place as the title character but we see a new dynamic as he teams up with Van Dyne’s Wasp as well as Pym to track down phase-shifting villain Ghost.
Though “Ant-Man and the Wasp” is due to release July 6 in North America, the story takes place prior to the events of April release “Avengers: Infinity War”.
Technically, Ant-Man isn’t even supposed to be out and about, having got into a spot of bother in “Captain America: Civil War”, but the ever-enterprising Lang has apparently found a way.
Evangeline Lilly broke through as a core cast member of the long-running show “Lost” and since then has been involved with “The Hurt Locker” and two of “The Hobbit” movies.
Michael Douglas, a two-time Oscar winner with “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and “Wall Street”, plays Van Dyne’s inventor father Pym, while Hannah John-Kamen of “Ready Player One” and “Game of Thrones” comes in as Ghost. JB
