Real heroes. Not actual size.
While there’s upheaval in Wakanda and a war over infinity stones, in one corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the stakes are much smaller. Paul Rudd returns as Scott Lang, a petty criminal turned shrinking superhero thanks to technology created by Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), the original Ant-Man. This time he’s joined in miniature by Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) as the Wasp, daughter of Pym and Janet van Dyne who went missing in a shrinking accident but will be turning up in this sequel in the shape of Michelle Pfeiffer.
This time our, the tiny heroes will be battling with another size-changing villain, Goliath as played by Laurence Fishburne, who makes the leap from DC to Marvel in the time it takes to exclaim”Great Caesar’s ghost!”.
Peyton Reed returns as director, and has had a little more prep time for the sequel having been drafted in at the last minute to replace Edgar Wright for the first instalment after some classic creative differences.
Ant-Man and the Wasp arrives at a theatre near you on 3 August 2018.
