AN AWESOME CAR CHASE (AND MUCH MORE ACTION)
Alas, Marvel has finally published the first trailer for Ant-Man & the Wasp, and it’s filled with secrets.
12. CHASE IN THE STREETS OF SAN FRANCISCO
The trailer opens with some beautiful shots of San Francisco, but things get a bit messier as it goes on. In the midst of trailer, we see footage from a chase sequence, with Scott and Hope hunted down by gunmen and motorbikes. We have no idea why Ant-Man and Wasp are coming under fire, but it does show some great examples of the movie’s “mind-blowing action” – and there’s at least some tease Ghost is related, with her hand spotted holding one of the handlebars.
11. THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING VAN
The San Francisco chase sequence takes a fun twist when Scott and Hope reveal they aren’t the only ones who can change size. It looks like Hank has geared a lot of their equipment with size-changing technology, which also find the van they’re driving. It shrinks down to size at the press of a button – and then pops up when it’s underneath another vehicle, tossing it aside with ease. The ability to change size doesn’t feel the most impressive at first look, but creative uses of the ability like this make Ant-Man one of the most intimidating heroes in the MCU.
10. THE RETURN OF GIANT-MAN
One of the most exciting plot twists in Civil War was the moment where Ant-Man turned GiAnt-Man. It left Iron Man’s squad reeling, with Scott sacrificing his life to buy Captain America time to flee. That technology hasn’t been forgotten in Ant-Man and the Wasp; it looks as though at some point Scott has fallen into the San Francisco river, and he’s survived drowning by changing size until he looms over a ferry. If Scott Lang is trying to keep a low profile, this is not the way to do it. It’s safe to say the FBI will hear of this particular (Gi)Ant-Man adventure.
We have to wait and see if Ant-Man and the Wasp will offer some more pseudo-science to explain just how GiAnt-Man’s powers work. Ant-Man established that Scott’s shrinking means his molecules compress, granting him increased strength. Thus, when Scott becomes GiAnt-Man he should actually be much weaker than normal, as his molecules are further apart. In reality, Civil War saw him tearing the wings off planes, so GiAnt-Man clearly possesses superhuman strength.
9. SOMEONE STOLE HANK PYM’S BUILDING
But who is GiAnt-Man towering over in that key scene? It gives us a first peek of industrialist Sonny Burch, a less-well-known Marvel character portrayed by Walton Goggins. In the comics, Burch was chairman of Cross Technologies. Like Ghost, he’s actually an Iron Man villain (he only appeared in one four-issue arc).
It seems Burch has plans to steal Hank Pym’s research. Look closely at the shot; he’s actually taken Hank’s building. We can safely bet that Ant-Man has chased him on to the ferry in order to get it back.
8. GHOST IN FOCUS
You’d be forgiven for believing Ghost gets her name from invisibility since she’s barely seen in the trailer, with a few glimpses of her hands making way for this blink-and-you’ll-miss-it scene.
And, even though Marvel has gender-swapped the baddie here, the suit is pretty much comic-book-accurate. The mask is especially distinctive, hiding Ghost’s true identity, although she’s actually portrayed by Hannah John-Kamen (Game of Thrones, Black Mirror, Ready Player One).
7. THE MYSTERIOUS CAR – WHAT’S FLAMES FOR?
Probably the oddest shot in the trailer is a focus on a mysterious purple car with flames painted down the side. The car is given a lot of attention and appears in the background of many other shots, suggesting the car is being driven by somebody crucial to the plot. It’s likely that the car has something to do with Luis, who’s spotted just a few moments later running near the vehicle.
6. LUIS IS BACK!
Michael Pena’s Luis was a fan-favorite element of the first film, and he’s set to reprise the role in Ant-Man & the Wasp. Even though Luis is definitely a source of rich humor in the sequel, the trailer avoids spoiling any of his gags. Instead, the trailer’s tone is definitely more “serious,” with dramatic music at odds with some of the more hilarious ideas (such as the Pez dispenser). The last year has found Marvel being criticized for focusing too much on laughter, so the trailer may be an attempt to show they’ve made a balance.
5. INTO THE QUANTUM REALM
Ant-Man introduced audiences to the Quantum Realm, a subatomic dimension with no concept of time and space. The reason the heroes are heading sub-atomic is simple – save Janet Van Dyne – but with Captain Marvel also visiting the Quantum Realm, there’s sure to be some long-term impacts. Indeed, in an interview last year, Evangeline Lilly noted, that this would open up “a whole entire new multi-verse to enter into and play around in.”
On the way to the Quantum Realm, the shrinking ship is passing through a group of tardigrades. These microscopic creatures are about 0.5mm when they’re fully grown, and are one of the most resilient animals in existence, giving a terrifying sense of scale to this shot.
4. DAUGHTERLY ADVICE
In what is perhaps the most heartwarming sequence of the trailer, Scott’s daughter Cassie gives him some important advice. She feels he needs “someone watching your back, like a partner.” This is very important: Wasp isn’t Scott’s “sidekick“, she’s his equal.
For sure, considering Ant-Man & the Wasp is supposed to partly be a rom-com, Cassie perhaps doesn’t like her dad being on his own. She wants him to have a partner in more than just the one sense. Rudd and Lilly didn’t spend much time together in Ant-Man, but the picture did conclude with a promising kiss (and are definitely a lot of sparks between the two in the sequel’s trailer).
3. WASP IN ACTION
Now let’s focus on the real highlight of the trailer: Evangeline Lilly’s Wasp. Her showcase action scene is impressive, showing Hope develop a unique fighting style. It’s a bit familiar: in Ant-Man, Hope was the better hand-to-hand fighter; now she has a Wasp outfit, she’s mixed her fighting style with size-changing. It’s clear Hope has been practicing her combat strategies, as she shifts size and launches powerful attacks with effortless ease. At the same time, some of the “stunts” do give a sense of just how many risks she’s taking; at wasp-size, that knife would literally have cut her in half.
2. WINGS… AND BLASTERS
It would appear that action sequence is quite early on in the movie, as Scott is watching it with Hank. He’s clearly impressed, and more than a little envious. Learning of her wings and blasters, he asks, “So I take it you didn’t have that tech available for me?” Hank just glances at him, and clarifies: “No, I did.” It’s certainly a stinging rejoinder.
More than comedy, the film establishes that Ant-Man and the Wasp own subtly different skills and power sets. That’s a smart move on Marvel’s part, ensuring the two size-changing superheroes complement and contrast, rather than simply mirror.
1. PEZ DISPENSING
The entire trailer is gripping, but the post-title stinger is certainly the Ant-Man and the Wasp‘s most buzzing moment; Hope tosses a Pez dispenser out the back, then shoots it to change its size, startling one of their chasers off his bike. Definitely part of the car-chase is set in San Francisco, and it’s an interesting one that highlights just how cool size-changing can be and, more slicky, is a sly callback to the giant Thomas the Tank Engine from Ant-Man‘s finale. What makes it so neat, though, is that the Pez dispenser is a Hello Kitty model, meaning it actually belonged to Scott’s daughter, Cassie.
