The sequel to hit Ant-Man movie is around the corner and the fever is slowly reaching to its fullest. It has already been screened for a private audience with a bunch of critics praising the movie like crazy. The word of mouth has spread like wildfire and movie is tracking big numbers at the box office.
The promotion and marketing is in a different gear as only few days are left before it’s released in key markets. The cast is busy attending press junkets including interviews, events etc. But it’s getting really hard for them to hide spoilers from coming out of their very mouths.
We know that the movie is based in the aftermath of Civil War events where Ant-Man fought for Team Cap. He is still coming to terms with his newfound superhero personal and he also has a daughter he needs to take care. We learned in Infinity War that he accepted the plea deal offered by the government where he will be under house arrest, but we didn’t know how it will be connected with the events of Infinity War until now. He may have actually revealed what the post-credits of the movie are all about.
Paul Rudd had this to say in a recent interview:
“People have asked me about [Ant-Man and The Wasp] and this, I don’t know if I’m supposed to say it but I’ll say it, it happens kind of concurrently. It’s very important because it doesn’t exist in a vacuum. You have to stay through the end because when you see this thing, through those post-credit scenes, there’s mind-blowing stuff that ties into Infinity War.”
Fans have always anticipated that there will be some sort of connection of Ant-Man 2 with the Infinity War events, but we didn’t know that the two are happening around the same time. And if there is indeed mind-blowing stuff in post-credits, then one of the characters will likely turn into ash as Thanos snapped his fingers with the gauntlet on. It could be Wasp, Hank Pym or even Scott Lang’s daughter that will push him to the brink.
It seems that Paul Rudd may have pulled Tom Holland who is notorious for revealing spoilers much ahead of film’s release. But he is not the only person who has spilled the beans on something important. Lawrence Fishburne who is playing Ben Foster revealed the big villain in the plot on the red carpet of movie’s world premiere. He said:
“I have this sort of surrogate daughter, this character called Ghost played by Hannah John-Kamen who’s incredible, and we sort of have a father-daughter thing going on too.”
Earlier, Evangeline Lilly took to Instagram and revealed that Ben Foster’s character is actually Goliath from the comics. She said:
“For those of you who are confused – we had to win the senate before we could tackle the house. We DID win the senate and that was INCREDIBLE, now let’s do it all over again. That was Goliath, now we’re facing Thanos. Don’t let them censor and throttle us. Let’s get loud. Let’s win again.”
Further, she compared it with Lost season 4 and 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.”
The movie boasts of an awesome cast as it has some of the biggest names including Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/ Ant-Man, Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne/ Wasp, Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, Michelle Pfieffer as Janet Van Dyne, Lawrence Fishburne as Dr. Bill Foster, Judy Greer as Maggie (Scott’s former wife), Michael Pena as Luis, Abby Ryder Fortson as Cassie (Scott’s daughter), Walton Goggins as Sonny Burch, Hannah John-Kammen as Ghost, Randall Park as Jimmy Woo.
It will hit theatres on July 6, 2018. The official movie synopsis reads:
“Scott Lang is grappling with the consequences of his choices as both a superhero and a father. Approached by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym, Lang must once again don the Ant-Man suit and fight alongside the Wasp. The urgent mission soon leads to secret revelations from the past as the dynamic duo finds itself in an epic battle against a powerful new enemy”.
