Ant-Man and the Wasp started filming about a month ago for the movie that will hit theatres July of 2018. The film will see Paul Rudd as Scott Lang getting back into his shrinking suit — which we learned in Captain America: Civil War is actually also a giant-making suit. However, this time around, our Ant-Man will have a Wasp in Evangeline Lilly. Reprising her role from the first film as the daughter of Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), Hope Van Dyne, we’ll finally get to see a big screen adaptation of this super tiny hero who, in the comics, had a role in creating the very first Avengers team. As she said in the 2015 Ant-Man, “It’s about damn time.”
Well we can say the same thing now about seeing her in her full Wasp suit — it’s about damn time. Though we’ve already seen her as Wasp standing in a classroom, this marks the first time we’ve seen her in the full piece, with the helmet on. Not only that, but from these angles we can see some thin wings tucked into her suit in the back and it looks absolutely perfect — Evangeline Lilly is The Wasp.

From the exciting pre-viz footage shown at San Diego Comic Con along with Lilly, Rudd and Michael Douglas all returning to team up with Laurence Fishburne as Bill “Goliath” Foster and Michelle Pfeiffer as the original Wasp, Hope’s mother Janet Van Dyne, this movie is going to involve a lot of size-changing hijinks. After all, we’ve got two characters in Lang and Foster who can grow to huge sizes, four characters who can shrink, two who can fly and — maybe all of them now capable of visiting the Quantum Realm. The back and forth of these extreme sizes will give the film a gigantic scale to play in, giving us lots of fun action and adventure we’ve never seen before.
This film is really — shaping up — to be a lot of fun.
See what we did there? “Sizing?” That too much of a stretch?
SYNOPSIS: “From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink: “Ant-Man and The Wasp.” 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.”
He has two cats and knows all things about Doctor Strange but little else.
