Scott Lang’s (Paul Rudd) life will never be the same after the events of Captain America: Civil War. In Ant-Man and the Wasp, our title hero finds himself in familiar territory, an ex-convict who is trying to live on the straightened arrow. Well, an ex-convict who helped Captain America commit treason. But who remembers those things. Now with a few days of house arrest left, Scott feels like he can live on the straightened arrow. That is, until, he is pulled out of his house by Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) and Hank Pym (Michael Douglas). The two bring him a new mission that could potentially rescue Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) from the Quantum Realm. But it won’t be easy, especially when you got the Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) and Sonny Burch (Walton Goggins) going after Hank’s tech.
We were fortunate enough to sit down with our fellow journalists to talk to director Peyton Reed and Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige, along with Rudd, Lilly, John-Kamen, Douglas, and Laurence Fishburne about the film, its place within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, villainy, and more. Check out what they had to say below.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is in a very interesting place right now. There is no doubt the fallout of the Avengers: Infinity War left some very deep emotional scars for fans and non-fans alike. That film took some pretty bold risks. And it paid off. Now the studio who placed their success on B-list heroes and relative unknowns can afford to make a few more gambles. Most of which will pay off anyway given the studio’s history. So it should come as no surprise that Ant-Man and the Wasp is yet another solid Marvel Studios film.
The sequel doubles down on the shrinking and growing abilities and integrates those elements into the innovative action sequences to deliver a visual feast that is big on excitement. Check out my full review below.
We are just mere weeks away from the release of the highly anticipated Ant-Man and The Wasp. We will be releasing some posts from the press junket in the next few weeks leading up to the film’s release. But in the meantime, we’ve got some featurettes for your viewing pleasure. The first takes a look at the two title heroes that make up Ant-Man and The Wasp. The second focuses on Hope Van Dyne/The Wasp, played by Evangeline Lilly. Check both featurettes out here below.
It is going to be interesting to see where the Marvel Cinematic Universe goes from here after the fallout of Avengers: Infinity War. But one thing is for sure, Ant-Man and the Wasp will be the kind of uplifting comedy we need to see after Infinity War‘s incredibly sad ending.
Disney has released a set of new character posters for the film, which reveals our first look at Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet Van Dyne. Check out all of them, below.
Marvel Studios has released the second trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp. The film follows the Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) as he re-assumes the title heroic role. Forced to deal with the consequences of his actions in Captain America: Civil War, Scott struggles to balance his life of being a superhero and a father. He is then confronted by Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) and Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) with an urgent new mission.
But this mission comes with a whole new set of dangers that include a new enemy called the Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen). Check out the latest trailer for the film, below.
