“The war has begun and one question remains: Where is Ant-Man?,” intones the voiceover on a new TV spot for Ant-Man and The Wasp (out July 6). In truth, the new footage doesn’t really provide a whole lot of answers regarding the activities of Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang during the events of Avengers: Infinity War, but it does give us a nice moment of comedy as Evangeline Lilly’s Hope van Dyne looms over a shrunken Lang as well as a look at Randall Park’s FBI agent character.
“Randall Park is the guy who is assigned to Scott Lang,” the film’s director Peyton Reed recently told EW. “He has been the guy who really has to make sure that Scott is abiding by his plea bargain.”
In Ant-Man and the Wasp, van Dyne, Lang, and Michael Douglas’ scientist Hank Pym are attempting to rescue Michelle Pfeiffer’s Janet van Dyne — that’s Hope’s mother and Hank’s wife — from the Quantum Realm, an alternate dimension into which she disappeared decades previously.
“Scott entered the quantum realm in the first film, and came back, which is something they thought was impossible,” says Lilly. “The question has arisen, Can Janet come back? So, the entire film, my character is hell-bent on finding a way to get into the Quantum Realm, find her mother, and bring her back.”
Ant-Man and The Wasp costars Michael Peña, Walton Goggins, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Tip “T.I.” Harris, David Dastmalchian, Hannah John-Kamen, Abby Ryder Fortson, and Laurence Fishburne.
