Slated to arrive on July 6th – only eight short weeks after Joe and Anthony Russo’s Avengers sequel – the Peyton Reed-directed pic mostly centers on Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) and her quest to find her long-lost mother, Janet. Industry veteran Michelle Pfeiffer has been brought on board to play the latter Wasp which, quite frankly, is almost worth the price of admission alone.
But when it comes to the film’s titular dynamic, it’s something that we’re all eager to get a glimpse of and thankfully, we’ll be able to do just that in no time at all. That’s because the very first trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp will be with us at some point tomorrow (January 30th). Or at least, that’s what Marvel Studios was teasing on their Instagram story (seen above) earlier tonight. We’re unsure of when exactly it’ll crawl online, but between 9am – 11am EST seems like a good bet, so keep your eyes peeled!
Aside from Rudd, Lilly, Michael Peña and Michael Douglas, who are all returning for more, Ant-Man and the Wasp has fleshed out its core cast with a raft of big-name additions, including John Wick star Laurence Fishburne as Dr. Bill Foster, along with Tomb Raider duo Hannah John-Kamen (Ghost) and Walton Goggins, and Randall Park as Jimmy Woo. It’s quite the ensemble, and in just a few short hours, we’ll get to see them all in action when we get our very first look at the sequel!
Said to retain the zany humor and spectacular (and miniature!) visuals that ensured the original became a breakout success, Ant-Man and the Wasp has been positioned as Marvel’s follow-up act to Avengers: Infinity War and opens on July 6th.
