Marvel is shining brighter than ever this year with two major Box Office successes, and a probable third one already on its way. Avengers: Infinity War has blown everything in its path and is about to reach a mammoth $2 Billion at the worldwide Box Office. Even the stiff competition from Deadpool 2 and Solo: A Star Wars Story has caused no harm to the film, and instead, they have been the ones to suffer. Now Marvel’s next entry on the big screen, Ant-Man, and the Wasp is going to be yet another blockbuster and a win for Marvel and Disney.
After watching Avengers: Infinity War, one of the most prominent questions that stuck in the brains of every viewer was – “Where were Ant-Man and the Wasp?” along with Hawkeye, Ant-Man and the Wasp were also absent from Infinity War, and their own solo team-up movie will explain the reason for their absence in the third Avengers movie.
Ant-Man, in particular, is going to have a major role in Avengers 4 and along with him the Wasp will also appear for the first time in a major team-up movie. Together, the two are going to bring in the concept of Quantum Realm, which probably holds the key to the supposed Time Travel events that are going to take place in Avengers 4.
In Ant-Man and the Wasp, the centre stage is gonna be given to Evangeline Lilly’s Wasp. The movie will heavily develop Wasp for the MCU. The first Ant-Man movie was actually a secret and slow origin for the Wasp as well, and finally, she is going to flap her wings in this one, kicking a whole lot of ass. Lilly is really excited for this movie to hit the theatres and she even 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.”
The marketing of the movie is now going in full force for Payton Reed’s second entry in the Ant-Man franchise. We are getting to see more footage for the movie with the new trailers, teasers and TV Spots that hit the internet these days. Another brand new TV Spot with some new footage has come out and mentioned above.
Along with the Spot, we have also got a fresh international poster for the film. The previous posters displayed all the important characters of the film, and this new poster has given the focus to the two main leads of the movie, Scott Lang aka Ant-Man and Hope Van Dyne aka The Wasp. This movie looks to be great fun with a lot of innovative storytelling being a part of it. It is going to be a unique adventure for us to witness. Here’s the official Synopsis of the movie:
