Trailers of Thor Ragnarok, Justice League, The Defenders and Avengers Infinity War have set a huge conversation about those movies on social media and. Though, some of the other “comic-book” movies haven’t get the attention that they’re deserved from audience, and popping out from the long list is Ant Man and the Wasp.
You can check all the top trailers here:
Have we all forgetten just how brilliant the first Ant Man was? Or his brilliant appearance in Captain America Civil War was? Ant-Man has got some major on-screen capital of the MCU, and with the Wasp joining him in their follow-up appearance is shaping up to be something rather special indeed. Let’s list through 5 reasons that’s going to make Ant Man and the Wasp deserve to get your attention.
We’ll Get to See All Both Ant Man and Giant Man
One of the most gratifying pay-offs of Captain America Civil War was seeing Scott Lang turning gigantic instead of going micro size. In the upcoming Ant-Man movie, it would almost seem to be a waste if we don’t get to see more gigantic set-pieces in the sequel. Peyton Reed was gutted to miss out portraying Scott’s giant persona onscreen for the first time, but there is high chance that he won’t miss that on in the second movie.
On the other hand, it’s clear that the director is looking to display some truly brilliant action sequences in Ant Man and The Wasp, with both Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly’s characters bound to receive their own gigantic surprises when it drops next summer.
Michelle Pfeiffer Is the Original Wasp
Fitting in with the 80s motif of the last film, which repeatedly referenced Michael Douglas’s Hank Pym and his days as a Cold Warrior, we know that Michelle Pfeiffer will be playing the original Wasp, Janet van Dyne, herself.
Douglas had previously shortlisted wife and Catherine Zeta-Jones for Janet van Dyne, but there’s no doubt that Pfeiffer is a fantastic pick. With her success as Cat Woman in Tim Burton’s Batman Return, Pfeiffer is more than well-equipped for the part.
It would be a major surprise if we didn’t see the original Wasp return from the quantum realm, especially since Scott managed to do so in the end of the first film. There is no surprise that Pym will be striving hard to find a route to rescue his wife or for Janet to have even escaped herself.
Most importantly is that both incarnations of The Wasp will have major parts to play in the Ant-Man sequel – particularly if we’ll be seeing more of the flashbacks.
We Could Be Returning To the Quantum Realm
Ant Man and Doctor Strange are 2 MCU movies that portray the terrifying of being sucked in an infinite state of nothingness. That feature is so interesting and impressing in term of visual and make the feel that the 2 movies are coming in nice little Marvel-shaped packages. If Ant Man and The Wasp can offer a repeat of an infinite state of nothingness, then it’s likely we could see one of the most visually impressive comic book adaptations yet.

It’ll Be The First Time We See The Post-Infinity-War MCU
Ant Man and The Wasp will have a lot to deal with when their movie takes place a few moth after the Avengers Infinity War.
Avengers Infinity War is guaranteed to shake up the MCU in a big way, and, with multiple deaths of Marvel’s characters, it’s apparently that Ant Man and Wasp won’t be as fun-loving or as mischievous as its predecessor. There is no doubt that there are going to be fun scenes, but it also has the added responsibility of navigating a universe emerging from what could very well be a cataclysmic event.
Since both Ant Man and Wasp have always been massive influences to The Avengers in the comic, it wouldn’t be at all surprising to see them possibly acclimatizing to heavier roles within the movie.
Cold War Era Hijinks with a Marvel Theme
One of the most exciting things about Ant Man and the Wasp is that it promises to take a look at the history behind of MCU. Flashbacks of Pym’s time working for SHIELD were some of the most interesting aspects of the first Ant Man film, so it would be a huge surprise not to see them explored further in the sequel.
