For the second year on the trot, 2018 will herald three marquee additions to the MCU: Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Ant-Man and the Wasp, which shoots for theaters on July 6th. Peyton Reed is once again calling the shots from behind the lens and he’ll be directing from a script penned by Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari, who were hired to flesh out the initial treatment from Adam McKay.
Currently filming in San Francisco, a new set video has emerged online today which shows off a rather awesome car stunt. The context of the scene is unknown, but fans are theorizing that it could be Giant Man kicking the vehicle over, hence the flip we see here. Chalk that up as speculation for now, but give the video a watch up above and see what you think. Just don’t expect to catch a glimpse of either Ant-Man or the Wasp, as they’re nowhere to be found.
Brought to life by Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly, respectively, the titular duo is poised to join forces in the forthcoming sequel – and not a moment too soon. Having spent much of the original wasting away on the sidelines, Marvel fans have longed for the moment when Lilly’s character suits up as the Wasp, adopting her father’s cutting-edge shrinking technology in the process.
Meanwhile, by the time Ant-Man and the Wasp opens in July, Scott Lang will have enjoyed (endured?) two dalliances with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes thanks to Captain America: Civil War and next year’s Avengers: Infinity War, which brings together all of the many costumed crusaders that have helped define the MCU thus far.
Also starring Laurence Fishburne, Michelle Pfeiffer and Tomb Raider duo Walton Goggins and Hannah John-Kamen (Ghost, potentially?), Ant-Man and the Wasp is expected to scurry into theaters on July 6th, 2018. Next up for the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the release of Thor: Ragnarok in November of this year, and Taika Waititi’s galactic threequel has been described as an ode to the great Jack Kirby.
