You have to hand it to Marvel: Everybody in the world wants to know what the hell is going to happen to the Marvel Cinematic Universe after the events of Infinity War, so of course they drop a trailer for this summer’s Ant-Man and the Wasp just to make you thirst for those answers even more.
It’s not a bad trailer by any means — the action looks just as good as it did in the first one (and that’s without Edgar Wright’s help this time around) and we’re pumped to spend more time with Paul Rudd and Michael Pena and the gang — but it feels just a little bit silly after, you know, everything that Thanos did. Then again, all comic book movies are silly, so maybe we should just enjoy this a bit more.
Take a look:
Well, this will be pretty fun, we think!
There’s a definite Fantastic Voyage vibe going on in some of the footage we’ve seen so far, especially when they’re exploring the Microverse, and we like how Evangeline Lily’s seriousness contrasts with Paul Rudd’s general goofiness. We get our first good look at Walton Goggins as classic Iron Man villain Sonny Burch here (another angry rich guy, but what can you do), and a way better look at Hannah John-Kamen’s Ghost, whose phasing powers are represented pretty well on screen.
No signs yet of Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) just yet, but we do get to see Bill Foster (as played by Laurence Fishburne), AKA the super-grower Goliath, shooting the shit with Ant-Man about how big they got when they grew. So yeah, this is pretty much a family reunion, only with more cars getting flipped and giant super-people tilting ferries like one of the tripods in War of the Worlds.
Plus, there’s a giant ant playing drums. What more could you want?
