Marvel Studios Ant Man and The Wasp Begins Production and Releases Synopsis
Marvel Studios has confirmed that production is officially underway on the Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp. As implied by its title, the movie sees Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) as Ant-Man and Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) as Wasp join forces, in order to battle nefarious forces in the MCU. The mid-credits scene in director Peyton Reed’s first Ant-Man film set the stage for Hope to don her mother’s Wasp supersuit in the MCU, but the sequel (also directed by Reed) will mark the first-time that the character is shown actually suiting up on the big screen.
During Marvel Studios’ Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2017, a number of key, additional Ant-Man and the Waspcast members were confirmed as being part of the movie’s acting ensemble. Joining Rudd and Lilly, as well as Michael Douglas (back as Hank “The Original Ant-Man” Pym), are Michelle Pfeiffer, Laurence Fisburne and Hannah John-Kamen as both friends and foes to the eponymous superheroes. However, none of those actors are to be found in the first official video from the movie’s set.
In the aftermath of “Captain America: Civil War,” Scott Lang (Rudd) grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a Super Hero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne (Lilly) and Dr. Hank Pym (Douglas) with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside The Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from their past.
