Marvel released the first trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp today after months of teasing set photos and glances at new costumes.
This is the first in-depth look we’ve seen of the Ant-Man sequel since it was first announced in October 2015. Marvel has steadily teased out aspects of the film, using banners at Disney’s biennial D23 conference to showcase the Wasp’s costume and a gag reel at San Diego Comic-Con to keep fans on their toes. Director Peyton Reed first teased the trailer on Twitter last night.
Ant-Man and the Wasp acts as the first, major introduction for Evangeline’s Lilly Hope van Dyne as a qualified superhero. Lilly’s van Dyne will take up the heroic role played by her mother so long ago, donning the Wasp’s costume and standing side by side with Ant-Man. Academy Award-nominated actress Michelle Pfeiffer will star in the movie as Janet van Dyne, Hope’s mother and the first Wasp. We briefly got a glimpse of Janet van Dyne through a flashback in the first movie.
Ant-Man and the Wasp, which sees Paul Rudd return as the titular hero, will be released in the U.S. on July 6.
