Ant-Man And The Wasp Will Mainly Focus On Finding Hope’s Mother

antmanandwasp

Now after the events of the first Ant-Man movie and Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) being able to go in and out of the quantum realm and Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) being skeptical of the ability to traverse the unknown dimension after his wife Janet Van Dyne became lost in it. So it seemed only reasonable that the sequel primarily focuses on heading into that dimension to retrieve the long lost Van Dyne.

Entertainment Weekly was doing their annual Summer Movie Preview and Evangeline Lilly who will be reprising her role as Hope Van Dyne who will become The Wasp, spoke with them about her feelings on becoming the first female superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) to see her name in the title of a film with Ant-Man and The Wasp. “It means a lot to me. If I’m honest with myself, I feel a lot of pressure to make sure that it is everything that the world wants it to be.” lilly then also offers some insight into Hope’s journey throughout the film, which she acknowledges will primarily be focused on finding and rescuing her mother from an uncertain fate. Lilly says, “Scott entered the Quantum Realm in the first film and came back, which is something they thought was impossible. The question has arisen, ‘Can Janet come back?’ So the entire film, my character is hell-bent on finding a way to get into the Quantum Realm and bring her back.

Hope’s mother will be played by the phenomenal Michelle Pfeiffer. Director Peyton Reed talks about how she was able to play catch with the world of superhero films being that her last involvement in the world was back in 1992 with her being the Catwoman in Batman Returns. “She hasn’t done one of these films since she played Catwoman with Tim Burton. It was really interesting to bring her in and get her up to speed on all the mythology and her place in this world.

I’m very excited for this film, then to add Laurence Fishburne, Walton Goggins and Hannah John-Kamen, Marvel may have another successful franchise within the MCU.

We are officially three out from the massive superhero team up known as Avengers Infinity War. Fans all over have been waiting with bated breath to see all of the potential partnerships that include Black Panther, Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, Spider Man the Guardians of the Galaxy and more.

Notably missing from all of the promo have been Ant-Man and the Wasp…as well as Hawkeye but we’re going to focus on Ant-Man and Wasp for this one. Now there has been speculation that the two size shifting heroes will not be part of the massive fight due to their film being released in July.

But has not stopped some dedicated fans from doing some sleuthing on their own and they think that have found the wise cracking, insect riding hero. Someone with the eyes of an hawk (no pun intended) seems to have found him hiding if you would on the infinity gauntlet.

Could he really be hiding? Could it be a potential spoiler? We dont know and will  find out on April 27th

It’s Here, the Ant-Man And The Wasp Trailer

A day after the highly praised and positively received premiere of Marvel Studio’s Black Panther, Marvel is hitting everyone with a one-two combo with the first trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp.

It picks up following Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) after being broken out of the super max prison in Captain America:Civil War. Scott, talking to Hope Van Dyne (Evangaline Lilly) is questioming whether would she have been by his side during the epic Avenger battle royale in Berlin.

We find out both Hope and Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) are on the run from the authorities. Which leads us to believe they may have either helped break Lang and the other Avengers out with Captain America or they may have just been on the run knowing the authorities are looking for Scott.

Either way that action and incredible special effects revs up and that’s not from just the Ant-Man. The Wasp has some amazing and mind blowing shots. We see the use of the wings and even the blasters on the Wasp suit which prompts Lang to ask Pym, “You gave her wings…i guess you didn’t have the technology for me?” With Pym responding, “I did.”

Overloaded with action and fun this sequel is sure to raise the bar in which it’s predecessor set.

Check out the trailer for yourself and see Ant-Man and The Wasp when it hits theaters July of this year.

Ant-Man and The Wasp Add On Black Mirror Actress in Mystery Role

Don’t you just love it when you hear “mystery role”? Doesn’t it get you hopes and anticipation just fired up for a project? Well this one is definitely one of them.

According to Variety, Hannah John-Kamen (Black Mirror, Game of Thrones, Killjoys) will join Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and co. in Marvel’s Ant-Man and The Wasp. Now her specific role as of now is being kept HEAVILY under wraps but Marvel is saying that it is a “key role”.

Apparently, Marvel had been meeting with actresses for this part for months before finally being “won over” by the 27-year-old Brit. Any ideas who she might be playing? Do you stick with just Ant-man villains or do you look further in the Marvel Universe.

Peyton Reed returns to helm Ant-Man and The Wasp from a script by Gabriel Ferrari. The movie is set for release on July 6, 2018.
