Marvel's Ant-Man and The Wasp gets a new trailer

He's such a tiny, adorable amusing man just waiting for his big break.

There's a definite Fantastic Voyage vibe going on in some of the footage we've seen so far, especially when they're exploring the Microverse, and we like how Evangeline Lily's seriousness contrasts with Paul Rudd's general goofiness.

"All the superheroes of Marvel and DC Comics combined would stand no chance against Ant-Man with a malfunctioning regulator". Same thing with Captain Marvel, by the way.

Hank Pym's wife Janet didn't have the same equipment to do the same when she went subatomic during a mission as the Wasp, and she ended up sacrificing her life to disable a Soviet nuclear missile. The film is a sequel to the 2015 origins story of "Ant-Man", that ending up making more than $500 million domestically. The screenplay for the film was written by Chris McKenna and Eric Sommers, along with Paul Rudd, Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari. The highly-anticipated follow-up has also added Academy Award nominees Michelle Pfeiffer and Laurence Fishburne, along with Hannah John-Kamen, Walton Goggins and Randall Park to the ensemble cast.

As it turns out, Ant-Man was nowhere to be found in Avengers: Infinity War.

In this second trailer, Lilly's The Wasp is here to save the day after Lang's Ant-Man just keeps messing up.

If you were wondering where Scott and Hope were during the events of Avengers: Infinity War, then we finally have the answer: on this poster!

But besides those details, on the surface, there's seemingly little to no callbacks that might help one think that the new Ant-Man and Infinity War even exist in the same cinematic universe at all.

Frankly, this looks like it will be a welcome palate cleanser after the devastating Infinity War. But here, it just seems like a case of wrong previous installment, wrong release date. Fortunately, those same clever special effects are back for Ant-Man and The Wasp. But this is the first time we get to see her in action.
