TV & FILM
brian-mcgee - June 18, 2018
2015's Ant-Man certainly didn't start the trend of the snarky, petty protagonist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it did give us one of its most endearing versions in Paul Rudd's Scott Lang. This new TV spot for the upcoming sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp, pokes fun at the relatively low stakes of this particular adventure coming out of Marvel's biggest-ever, world-shattering, crossover event, Infinity War.
Speaking of which, can I just say that they dug their own graves on this decision to hold back the subtitle of Avengers 4? They said it was a spoiler for the ending of Infinity War, which was spoiled for the entire world by the end of the film's first weekend. Basically, when that whole "I don't feel so good" thing became an insta-meme, the game was up.
So holding off on releasing the subtitle for Avengers 4 is only gonna backfire in this current climate where half of the people love it and half of the people hate it with the fire of a thousand suns. It was a really bad move on their part, akin to J.J. and compant lying about Khan being the villain of Into Darkness.
But I digress... Ant-Man and the Wasp looks like it's gonna be a lot of fun, and the mid-and/or post-credits scenes will likely address Thanos' snap, because they can't build that into the climax of the film lest they ruin any hope the film has at being disconnected from the universe at large. Shit, they're totally gonna do it, aren't they? We'll find out on July 6.
