After the a huge cliffhanger that Avengers: Infinity War ended on, fans will undoubtedly be looking to scrape Ant-Man and the Wasp vigorously for clues as to how the story would proceed. It appears that fact isn’t lost on the marketing behind the movie as Marvel Studios released a TV Spot poking fun at all the build-up that generally accompanies movies of this scale. Using this as a momentous opportunity, Marvel also announced that tickets for Ant-Man and the Wasp will go on sale starting tomorrow.
Titled Universe the spot is aimed at some of the casual folks out there to cement the movie’s connection as being in the same shared cinematic universe that Avengers: Infinity War belonged to. It also subverts the generally epic lead-up that accompanies the trailers of such movies, with the often quoted “It’s all been leading to this” quickly followed by some minor anticlimactic squabble. You can check it out in the embedded link below; it runs half a minute so shouldn’t take that long.
The spots and trailers for Ant-Man and the Wasp have done a great job selling the movie as a fun action-comedy with the dynamic between Hope Van Dyne (Wasp) and Scott Lang (Ant-Man) being the highlight of the movie. Ghost is being promoted as the antagonist while Bill Foster and Janet Van Dyne are being kept out of the trailers almost entirely; the latter is yet to make an appearance despite getting her own character poster. It’ll be interesting to see if Marvel does reveal a glimpse at Janet before the movie releases in theaters on July 6.
