Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War” is still pulling-in double-digit weekends at the box-office but “Ant-Man and the Wasp” is gearing up for the film’s big debut theaters this July. The new Ant-Man 2 video released over Memorial Day weekend feature a better look at the film’s antagonist Ghost, played by Hannah John-Kamen, along with an extended look at Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly suiting up to save the day.
If you liked the original “Ant-Man” release in 2015, you should be happy to know that the sequel is bringing back most of the original cast. Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly are starring in the new installment as Scott Lang/Ant-Man and Hope van Dyne/Wasp respectively, and even Michael Douglas is returning as Dr. Hank Pym. As we mentioned earlier, Hannah John-Kamen is playing Ghost, and the cast-list includes Judy Greer as Maggie Lang; Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet van Dyne; Laurence Fishburne as Dr. Bill Foster/Goliath; and Michael Peña as Luis.
You can see a lot more of Ghost-in-action thanks to the video below.
The original “Ant-Man” opened in 2015 with a $57M debut weekend. The tiny-hero went on to make over $180M domestically and over $519M worldwide. The Ant-Man character was also featured in “Captain America: Civil War,” in both tiny and gigantic forms. The new Ant-Man story isn’t expected to shed any light on events that happened during, or after, “Avengers: Infinity War”. While the stories of the two-films are connected under the same Marvel Cinematic Universe, the plot of “Ant-Man and the Wasp” is expected to focus on time-periods before Thanos came to Earth. Since “Ant-Man and the Wasp” isn’t scheduled to hit theaters until July, you still have plenty of time to see “Avengers: Infinity War” in theaters again to keep yourself busy. That seems to be what most Marvel fans are doing each week, even with “Deadpool 2” and “Solo: A Star Wars Story” in theaters the new Avengers film made over $17M at the box-office this weekend. Not bad for a superhero movie that has already been in theaters for five-weeks now.
