Remember that gimmick with the tank in Ant-Man that made no sense because an object doesn't lose density when it loses mass? Get ready for a whole hell of a lot more of that gag in Ant-Man and the Wasp. I kid, I kid. There's actually some really cool uses of that device in this first trailer for this July's highly anticipated sequel.
For me, Ant-Man is a tale of the film that never was. Edgar Wright left the project a little over a year before it was due in theaters and the film we got was a pretty watered down version of whatever he was gonna do with the property. Thankfully, the sequel looks to be moving in its own direction and not relying so heavily on leftover bits of story from a different film.
It's hard to hate Paul Rudd though. In fact, it's pretty much impossible. I think he and Evangeline Lilly and cunnilingus-related cancer survivor Michael Douglas all had good rapport in the first film, and that looks to continue here.
One interesting addition to the cast is Hannah John-Kamen as Ghost, a villain in the Marvel universe with ties to Tony Stark and Sam Rockwell's Justin Hammer—BRING HIM BACK ALREADY DAMN IT! My guess is she's the big bad this time around, or potentially a Boba Fett-esque character designed to look super cool and do little to nothing to affect the plot.
Another interesting thing will be the fact that this is the first Marvel movie coming out post-Infinity War. I'm curious to see if this film gets a boost from the excitement over that flick earlier in the summer or, on the outside chance it's a disappointment, suffers residual backlash. Either way, it's bound to do better than the first flick at the box office. Ant-Man and the Wasp opens on July 6.
