As fan's mull over Ant-Man's whereabouts following (mild spoiler warning!) his no-show in Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel Studios is reminding fans about their small-but-big hero with an all-new (and pretty killer-looking) poster for Ant-Man and the Wasp, chasing it with the promise that we’ll also be getting a brand-new trailer within the next 24 hours.
Evangeline Lilly (Wasp, aka Hope van Dyne) tweeted out the official poster on Monday with the promise that a “full-length trailer” will arrive on May 1. Check it out below:
The striking poster gives us the characters set up for Paul Rudd’s next turn as Scott Lang, showing off a glimpse of Michelle Pfeiffer’s costume (as Janet van Dyne) as well as Hannah John-Kamen as Ghost. Standing front and center, Rudd’s Ant-Man and Lilly’s Wasp anchor the poster, flanked by Pfeiffer, Michael Douglas (as Hank Pym), and Laurence Fishburne (as Bill Foster). Returning stars Michael Peña (Luis), Bobby Canavale (Paxton), and Judy Greer (Maggie) round out the full spread.
Although Pfeiffer’s character holds a place of prominence in the poster, we’re still only getting a small peek at the body armor Marvel has in mind for Janet van Dyne. As Hank’s missing-in-the-Quantum-Realm wife, she had access to the same tech that gives Ant-Man his size-toggling powers — but will they find her?
We’re hoping tomorrow’s trailer sheds some more light not only on Janet, but on John-Kamen’s Ghost, the movie’s villain, as well. In the comics up to this point, Ghost has been male, and through his suited-up powers possesses the ability to phase through walls.
Marvel Studios also dropped a teaser video in which MCU stars wondered exactly where Ant-Man and the Wasp were during Infinity War:
With the phenomenal attention the Marvel Cinematic Universe is getting as Avengers: Infinity War continues to tighten its grip on pop culture across the globe, Marvel appears to be striking while the iron is hot — and especially in light of the shocking developments in Infinity War, and how Ant-Man and the Wasp will come into play in the overall MCU saga leading up to the still-untitled Avengers 4.
When you’ve recovered from the ending of Infinity War enough to get your bearings, give yourself a good shake and realize this: Ant-Man and the Wasp is only a little more than two months away. Scott, Hank, Janet, and the rest will colonize theaters beginning July 6.
