Marvel’s Next upcoming movie is going to be none other than Ant-Man and the Wasp. This is the sequel to the solo Ant-Man movie that came out back in 2015. This movie is going to be really important for Phase 3 as it is going to explain where exactly Ant-Man and the Wasp were during Avengers: Infinity War. They will also make us dive into the intricacies of the Quantum Realm.
Since we are getting really close to the release of this movie, the marketing campaign of the movie is going on in full force. Marvel has released quite a bit of footage for the movie with new Trailers, Teasers and TV Spots that come out every now and then. As we know that The Quantum Realm is going to play a very significant role in the story of Ant-Man and the Wasp, and it will also be used a lot in Avengers 4 as it is the only way the Avengers may get to travel through time as suggested by the set photos.
Along with Ant-Man, Wasp and Hank Pym, we are going to see Team Luis return in the movie, Lawrence Fishburne has also joined the cast as Bill Foster, Michelle Pfeiffer will be playing Janet Van Dyne, Walton Goggins will be playing a minor villain named Sonny Burch and the main villain, Ghost will be played by Hannah John Kamen.
The plot of the movie will circle around team Ant-Man trying to bring back Michelle Pfeiffer’s Janet Van Dyne from the Quantum Realm. In doing so, they are going to create the big villain Ghost who in lust for more power will be after Pym tech, and that is why we have seen so many chase sequences involving Hank Pym’s luggage lab in the film’s trailers.
Recently, a TV spot came out that focussed on how Ghost gets unleashed in the movie, showing how her powers work and it also gives us a quick look at some comic moments of the movie. Here’s the spot:
Now, in the marketing stint, Ant-Man and the Wasp has also released a brand new poster for its IMAX release. Marvel movies give us the true feel when they are witnessed in IMAX as the bigger screen size and the immense clarity really helps the view of the film. Here’s the brand new IMAX Poster for Ant-Man and the Wasp:
As we saw in Captain America: Civil War, Ant-Man brought in his A-game with Giant Man and as seen in the trailers, Giant Man is going to quite the screen time. This poster also shows exactly that. Along with him, the movie is giving Wasp the centre stage this time around, as it is the first time Evangeline Lilly’s Hope Van Dyne will be donning the Wasp suit on screen. She is pretty excited about her bit in the movie and also compared it with the season 4 of hit TV series ‘Lost’.
Here’s what she said:
“When I heard about Infinity War and the direction that they’re heading, I did have this moment of realizing, oh, wow, there’s a bit of a déjà vu for me with the Lost franchise. We are hitting that Lost Season 4 space where everything’s about to shift, and you’re about to lose the solid ground underneath you. And Ant-Man and the Wasp, of course, will play a part in that. Those characters are experts in the quantum realm}. In Ant-Man and the Wasp, they are trying everything in their power to safely enter the Quantum Realm and return back from it because they have evidence from the first film that Scott Lang was able to do that. If he can do it, why can’t we? If we do succeed in Ant-Man and the Wasp, then that does open a whole entire new multi-verse to enter into and play around in. I’m not the story creator, so I can’t tell you what they’re going to do with that. But I definitely see the potential there.”
