Ant-Man And The Wasp Trailer: Here Are The Biggest Takeaways
The Ant-Man and the Wasp trailer just dropped and it gave a glimpse of loads of things to expect from the upcoming film. But here are the biggest takeaways from the clip:
Ghost, played by Game of Thrones's Hannah John-Kamen, seemed to be the primary villain in the film. By the looks of it, she has something to do with Michael Douglas' Hank Pym, and the trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp ultimately gave fans a look at how her power goes.
"She stole your tech. Now she wants to take over the world, or whatever," Michael Peña's Luis told Pym.
She can go through solid objects, so she's definitely going to make it hard for the duo. It is interesting to note that Vision (Paul Bettany) in the Avengers: Infinity War had the same power of zapping through objects. In the comics, Ghost targeted the rich and the powerful, so perhaps that would play out in the film as well.
Hope Is A Real Badass
Ant-Man's new partner, Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) aka The Wasp, is awesome to say the least. She seemed to know how to leverage her suit more than Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) does. After all, her dad is Pym so basically she had seen how the technology works. She even has wings, so basically that's something more than the other superhero.
At one point, she even told Lang, "Follow my lead." Should it be titled The Wasp and the Ant-Man? However, judging by the trailer, each has their fair share of screen time.
Hope might even trigger Ant-Man's inferiority complex even more. Early in the trailer, Lang can be seen talking with his daughter, Cassie, revealing he felt that he messes things up while trying to save the world. The kid then suggested that he needed someone who could help him in fighting bad guys, who is clearly Hope.
Height Is Might
The trailer also gave everyone a sneak-peek of Laurence Fishburne's Bill Foster, who in the comics is known as the Goliath or Black Goliath. Lang can be seen at the office talking with Foster about the biggest size they could get.
Foster claims he and Pym had partnered for a project called "Goliath." He also boasts he grew up to 21 feet. Lang, on the other hand, shared his biggest was 65 feet. Hope, who is also in the room, was clearly unamused of the two guys talking about sizes.
Luis Is Suiting Up
The jolly Luis is leveling up and leading a team from the company aptly called "X-Con Security Solutions." He is leading two former thieves during the first Ant-Man film, so they've turned into completely good guys.
What's more is that, Luis had been asked for help by Pym himself to possibly retrieve the tech that was stolen from him, which is totally unimaginable. For those who don't know, Luis was the cellmate of Lang during his jail time who was willing to lend a hand to the superhero.
Quantum Realm's Extended Screen Time
Quantum Realm has already been mentioned in the first Ant-Man film but this time, the place is given a little bit more exposure. Fans will now get to see a reddish-orangey world as a people aboard a tiny ship can be seen in the place as well, hinting that there would be a whole lot of world they have yet to discover.
Coincidentally, it is where Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), Pym's wife, got trapped many years ago. That said, could the ship be for rescue? The trailer did not give any clue whether they'll be able to get her and if that happens, will she ever be the same again?
Also, Ant-Man was seen at the place when something green and has wings flew past him. Could this be Janet, the original Wasp? Nothing's sure, except that this creature seemed to be glowing and is incredibly fast.
Ant-Man and the Wasp opens on July 6.
