Look at this Slick and Sharp ANT-MAN AND THE WASP Trailer

Black Panther is right around the corner, and to keep our anxiety under control while the early reactions pop out, Marvel Studios has graced us with the first Ant-Man and the Wasp trailer. It’s an utter delight.

The biggest takeaway here is the neat and graceful action, which is reminiscent of Captain America: The Winter Soldier (arguably the Marvel movie with the best fight choreography) — all perfectly complimented with a fist-pumping musical selection (Ants Invasion by Adam & The Ants) and pitch perfect editing. Not to mention the somewhat grounded and rough around the edges vibe of the scenarios where the characters find themselves in.

Ant-Man stood out thanks to its weird sense of imagination and humor, and this one doesn’t seem to be holding itself back in that department. How can you look at a Hello Kitty Pez dispenser being used as a weapon and not smile? Or Hank Pym shrinking a building to carry like a travel bag.

The winning trio of Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lilly display fun chemistry and promise more memorable banter. All in all, it looks like the ideal small-scale flick for taking a breath after the presumably game-changing events in Avengers: Infinity War.

Ant-Man and the Wasp will hit theaters on July 6, 2018.

  • Brian Lippman

    Peyton Reed going all out on his own looks amazing

  • Come for the jokes, stay for the tardigrades.

  • I would have loved another heist, but this movie looks like it’s going to be a blast.

  • These two were never really my favorites, but the size changing in this franchise is a lot more fun than I ever expected

    • James

      The van chase sequence looks wicked fun.

  • Jams

    The roller suitcase building is a new MCU favorite. I love seeing all the wacky applications of Pym particles in this and the first ANT-MAN.

    Also, I’m all on board the SS Antony, or whatever inferior name they give their Quantum Realm ship.

  • Yeah, this trailer’s alright. But it could have been so much more…
