New posters from the upcoming Marvel Studios, Ant-Man and The Wasp have been released and for the first time we are seeing what Michelle Pfeiffer looks like in her role of Janet Van Dyne the mother to Hope Van Dyne “the Wasp” played by Evangeline Lily.
In the look of Michelle Pfeiffer it should be noted that she seemingly has on a new suit, one that is more streamlined like the newer versions both Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne are wearing. Also Janet’s costume seems to have some green in it and not the same as the character was seen to have worn in the 1st Ant-Man film. Does this mean she joins the team full-time and does she take on a new moniker now that her daughter is The Wasp.
Let us know what you think about these new posters and what do you think about the look of Janet Van Dyne.
Ant-Man and the Wasp hits theaters on July 6,2018
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.
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.
Remember at the end of the 1st Marvel’s Ant-man, we got a glimpse of what was to come potentially the sequel as Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) had a new prototype WASP suit revealed to her by her father Hank Pym (Michael Douglas)?
Well this had us all excited for what was to come. Then with the official announcement of the sequel Ant-Man & The Wasp people were excited to see what would happen. Now we have our 1st set photos and they were worth the wait.
In these first photos we see that both Hope and Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) have upgraded suits which are more sleek in design. Take a look and let us know what you think.
