As promised via a witty little and smartly marketed teaser, Marvel Studios has released the new trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp. This second trailer carries much of the attitude from the first teaser, while also lightening up things significantly. Set to the foot tapping It Takes Two by Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock, the trailer shows off more of Ant-Man and Wasp’s partnership, glimpses at the new villain in town Ghost, while ending on a hint about Goliath. Check it out below:
After the heavy Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp should come across as lighter relief with significantly lower stakes. The movie sees the return of fan-favorite Luis who along with Dave and Kurt, seems to be running some sort of faux team of his own. It also seems like Luis will continue to be a part of the action like he was in the first film. The trailer is peppered with hints about the antagonist Ghost, a female villain whose powers seem to have been stolen from Hank Pym’s tech. Lawrence Fishburne makes a cameo appearance towards the end as Bill Foster, teasing his eventual transformation into Goliath, the second Giant Man in the comics. Should that happen in this movie itself, we could see two giants either squaring off or teaming up depending upon how the movie chooses to portray its dynamic with Ant-Man.
There’s still no mention of Janet Van Dyne save for a brief sequence at what looks like the Quantum Realm. Given how steady it appears, it’s possible Scott Lang could have mastered the art of moving in and out of the Realm which could lead to some extended sequence set within, resulting in Janet’s eventual rescue. It’s also admirable how the trailer is designed to conceal information about the movie’s plot and gives away moments rather than plot beats. It’s equally disappointing to see no mention of the duo’s absence in Infinity War after yesterday’s tease.
What are your thoughts on the teaser? Let us know in the comments below. Ant-Man and the Wasp comes out in theaters on July 6.
