New Ant-Man and The Wasp Trailer Emphasizes the Plot (and the Hilarity)
"I have wings! Why would I 'go low?'"
While the first Ant-Man and The Wasp trailer focused on the new team-up, the one Marvel released today focuses a little more attention on the actual story of the film, as well as on the huge laughs. This team has got jokes. Check it out above.
It seems that in addition to simply bringing together a new team and allowing them to figure out their working (and romantic) dynamic, the film is also throwing them into a pretty intense situation involving Hank Pym’s time spent in the quantum realm. Someone in the quantum realm stole Pym’s tech, and now, as Michael Pena’s Luis explains, “she wants to take over the world, or whatever.” This new villain is known as Ghost, because she can “walk through walls and stuff.”
In addition to learning more about what Ant-Man and The Wasp will be facing in this film, I also love that the trailer starts with Scott talking to his daughter Cassie about what he does, with him revealing his insecurities about screwing up superhero-ing “almost every time,” and her wishing that she could “fight bad guys like you.” (You will, Cassie! You will!) I love Scott Lang having these moments and the fact that he’s this blue-collar, family man-type hero. Just a regular dude doing the best he can…with a jillion-dollar high-tech shrinking suit.
This trailer has me even more excited for this film. I’m loving the banter, the easy rapport between everyone in the cast, and the really grounded, human emotion that’s on display, even as they’re doing stuff like embiggening salt shakers to stop criminals.
But, can we talk about this ant playing the drums, though?
Can this talented formicidae get its own movie?!
