If you need a breather after the events of Avengers: Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp is on its way to help out - and Marvel Studios has just unveiled a new TV spot and international poster for Scott Lang's (Paul Rudd) second solo adventure. This time around Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) is refusing to stay on the bench, instead donning a super-suit of her own and taking up her mother's mantle as the pint-sized superhero, Wasp.
After being brought in relatively late in the day to replace Edgar Wright, director Peyton Reed propelled Ant-Man to modest success and returned to direct the sequel. Ant-Man and the Wasp is set prior to the events of Infinity War, and sees Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), Ant-Man and the Wasp taking a trip to the Quantum Realm and facing off against a new threat: a villain called Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen), who has the unnerving ability to walk through walls.
In the latest TV spot, Scott's old pal Luis (Michael Peña) gets in on the action in a high-speed chase, and Wasp pulls off a neat trick using a giant PEZ dispenser. CBM also shared a new international poster for the movie, which shows that the two heroes have each other's backs. Can you spot the tiny Ant-Man and Wasp hidden in the poster as well?
Ant-Man and the Wasp will also introduce Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet van Dyne, the original Wasp, who was lost in the Quantum Realm after she went "subatomic" in order to stop a nuclear bomb. At the end of Ant-Man, Scott also went subatomic and paid a visit to the Quantum Realm, but he managed to return safely. Now that they know it's possible, Hank and Hope will likely be interested in launching a rescue mission to try and find Janet.
Both Ant-Man and the Wasp were noticeably absent from Avengers: Infinity War, and the excuse given in the movie was that Scott is still under house arrest for his role in Captain America: Civil War. It looks like he didn't manage to stay out of trouble for long, however, so it will be interesting to see if Ant-Man and the Wasp has any links to this year's massive Marvel team-up movie - even if it's only via a post-credits scene.
