Superhero movie fans will be very excited to know that production has now begun on Ant-Man and the Wasp. We know this because today Marvel Studios released a clever short video telling us exactly that. (Short being the operative word here.)
However, if you’ve been a follower of Evangeline Lilly on Instagram you already knew that. You also already knew that Lilly, who plays Wasp, a.k.a Hope van Dyne, will have none other than Michelle Pfeiffer playing her mom, a.k.a. the first Wasp, Janet van Dyne.
Paul Rudd returns as Ant-Man, as does Michael Peña and Michael Douglas in their respective roles. Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Abby Ryder Fortson, Tip “T.I.” Harris and David Dastmalchian also return from the first film.
Joining Pfeiffer as newcomers to the cast for the sequel are Laurence Fishburne, Hannah John-Kamen, Walton Goggins and Randall Park.
According to Variety…
In the sequel, Rudd’s Scott Lang grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a superhero and a father in the aftermath of “Captain America: Civil War.” As he struggles to once again balance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne (Lilly) and Dr. Hank Pym (Douglas) with a new mission. Scott, with the ability to shrink, must again put on his suit and learn to fight alongside the Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from their past.
Ant-Man and the Wasp hits theaters on July 6, 2018.
