Marvel has been having one hell of a year. In February we had the dominating origin film for Black Panther. In April we witnessed the beginning of the war in Avengers: Infinity War. And now Marvel wants to take us on a fun ride with Ant-Man and The Wasp. So how are they doing it? By teasing themselves of course! They have been asking the audience – where was Ant-Man during the events of Infinity War?
Well, things have changed a bit since the end of his appearance in Captain America: Civil War. He’s been under house arrest for 2 years, unable to help or work. Mostly keeping to himself like mini-bowling in his house, playing the drums, making Chewbacca noises into a fan. But in his absence, his heist crew have put together an office, looking pretty operational. This leaves Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) with a crumby desk and something to prove. Hijinks are bound to ensue, including the funniest bit in the second ad where Scott is stuck at about 2 feet tall. Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) teases him, saying if only Captain America (Chris Evans) could see him now.
These are fun little teasers but I feel they depend a little too much on the success of Infinity War. And due to ads like this, it makes me believe that we’ll actually being seeing what he was up to while the world was under attack. But will the whole film cover it? It doesn’t seem likely. Still, the action looks great and we’re bound to get a lot of fun effects outside of the ones we’ve already seen in the trailer. You’ll have to check the ads out below and let us know what you think!
