When the last full-length trailer for Ant-Man and The Wasp dropped less than a week after the doom-and-gloom Avengers: Infinity War exploded into theaters, it seemed a bit too early for wise-cracking super heroes. Of course, time — and Deadpool 2 — have helped to soften the blow of the “dusting” so the new TV spot for the sequel to Ant-Man feels the way it should: light, fun and more than a little bit ridiculous.
Ant-Man & the Wasp was directed by Peyton Reed from a script by Chris McKenna, Erik Sommers, Andrew Barrer, Gabriel Ferrari and Rudd. Paul Rudd returns as Scott Lang, aka Ant-Man; Evangeline Lilly takes up the mantle of The Wasp; Michael Douglas returns as original Ant-Man Hank Pym; Michael Peña returns as Luis; with Michelle Pfeiffer as original Wasp, Janet van Dyne; Laurence Fishburne as the size-changing hero Bill Foster, aka Goliath; and Walton Goggins and Hannah John-Kamen as the villains Sonny Burch and Ghost.
Ant-Man & the Wasp opens in theaters on July 6th.
