A new set video from Ant-Man and The Wasp teases an action sequence in San Francisco, home of the titular shrinking superheroes. With the Ant-Man sequel aiming for a Summer 2018 release, straight after Avengers: Infinity War, it's clear Marvel's not slowing down. This time, Scott Lang will be joined by Hope Van Dyne as she suits up as The Wasp. She's following the footsteps of her mother Janet Van Dyne, who will be appearing in the sequel played by Michelle Pfeiffer.
Lang will be struggling to balance his dual lives after the events of Captain America: Civil War and whatever cosmic antics he gets up to in Infinity War, as well as taking on new threats. These come in the form of Hannah John-Kamen's Ghost - a morally ambiguous genius who invents a suit that turns her invisible and intangible - and Walton Goggins' Sonny Burch, a greedy corporate employee of Cross Technologies. Both characters have roots in the corporate espionage themes that the first Ant-Man film played with, so it makes sense that they'll be causing trouble in Ant-Man and The Wasp. Now we have a taste of some of the trouble.
A new set video from the San Francisco set of the film has appeared online. In the sequence, a van is flipped over sideways into oncoming traffic. There aren't any visible actors in the video, so we can't tell who it revolves around, but the stunt hints some sort of action scene in the streets of SF.
We may actually know what this sequence is already. During the footage released by Marvel at Comic-Con, a scene was shown of a van shrinking and driving underneath another car and then reverting back to its normal size - flipping the car it was underneath. We don't know who was driving either vehicle, so we can't say how it affects the film, but it promises to be a cool sequence all the same.
Filming is still taking place for Ant-Man and The Wasp, although hard details are thin on the ground. It will likely deal with the team searching for Janet Van Dyne after her disappearance in the Quantum Realm in the original, although won't lose the feel of the first film; Michael Pena and Judy Greer will return to their roles as Luis and Maggie Lang respectively, as well as Abby Ryder Fortson playing Scott's daughter Cassie.
