A brand new poster for Ant-Man and The Wasp is here, confirming the next trailer arrives soon. All eyes are on Avengers: Infinity War at the moment and rightfully so, but its only a matter of months before the next entry in the MCU arrives. The sequel to Ant-Man has largely flown under the radar thanks to the attention Infinity War and Black Panther have received this year. While neither of the sequel's leading characters were present for Infinity War, fans will get to see what they were doing leading up to that movie since Ant-Man and The Wasp takes place prior to Thanos' arrival.
Marketing for Ant-Man and The Wasp hasn't fully kicked in just yet, with only one poster and one trailer having been released thus far. Now that Infinity War is in theaters though, it's only a matter of time before the size-shifting heroes take the spotlight. They're already doing so in a newly-released poster, ahead of a new trailer dropping online this week.
The Wasp herself, Evangeline Lilly shared a brand new poster for Ant-Man and The Wasp that sees her become the first female superhero to be featured in the title of an MCU movie. Along with the poster and the details that can be gleamed from it, Lilly has also confirmed that a full-length trailer is going to debut tomorrow on Tuesday, May 1.

The poster is designed to put equal emphasis on the film's co-leads. The bright red and yellow colors flood the entire poster, as Lilly and Paul Rudd are featured front and center helmet-less. Wasp is the highest featured character on the poster, which is just the latest example of her potentially being more important than Ant-Man in the movie. Ant-Man and The Wasp revolves around the operation to rescue Hope van Dyne's (Lilly) mother, so it makes sense for The Wasp to be more prominently featured in the film's poster.
Speaking of which, this one-sheet also offers the first look at Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet van Dyne, aka. the original Wasp. The image confirms what many expected and that Janet has still aged despite spending decades in the Quantum Realm. It also appears that she's wearing a suit of her own, and since the entire design can't be seen, it should be assumed that this is the same costume she was wearing when she went subatomic back in the 1980s.
The first Ant-Man and The Wasp trailer hinted at the rescue mission to save Janet, but didn't offer any specific details on the matter. This new trailer should reveal more about that storyline and may even touch on how Janet's years in the Quantum Realm have impacted here. Be sure and tune in to Screen Rant tomorrow to watch the trailer for yourselves!
