Ant-Man And The Wasp Go Back To Back On New Promo Art
While we may be counting down the days until April 27 – which is when Avengers: Infinity War arrives in cinemas – it’s important we not forget that Marvel Studios have one more offering coming in 2018, that being Ant-Man and the Wasp. And though the latter probably won’t smash box office records like the former, it’s safe to say that it’ll still sell more than a few tickets.
Headed up by director Peyton Reed, who found great success with the original Ant-Man back in 2015, this pint-sized sequel has all the makings of the perfect, light-hearted tonic to Marvel’s super-serious and apocalyptic Infinity War. And it’s now quickly approaching its July 6th release date.
Understandably enough, the studio’s still keeping most of the spotlight on the aforementioned event movie, but we’re starting to see more and more from Ant-Man and the Wasp as time wears on and today brings with it some new promo art. Though not terribly revealing, it shows the two titular characters standing back to back, giving us a great look at their upgraded costumes and teasing what’s sure to be a dynamic new duo in the MCU.
Of course, what most fans are excited to see here is the Wasp finally taking flight. Make no mistake about it, after spending much, if not all of the original movie rooted to the sidelines, Evangeline Lilly’s diminutive character has graduated from supporting player into a bona fide lead, which is why it was so important for Peyton Reed that her alter-ego was included in the final title for the pic.
“It was important to me, in this movie called Ant-Man and the Wasp, that she’s not a supporting character. She’s a lead character. She’s become a fully-formed hero,” said the director.
Ant-Man and the Wasp is expected to take flight on July 6th, and all signs point to a deep dive into the Quantum Realm to locate and potentially rescue the long-lost Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), who was once known as the original Wasp before her daughter, Hope (Lilly), got her wings three years ago.
