Come This Friday, actor Paul Rudd returns to the silver screen as Scott Lang in Ant-Man and The Wasp, and this time his crime fighting partner Hope VanDyne (played by Evangeline Lily), joins as the film’s headlining super-heroine!
Following the massive behemoth of a movie, Avengers: Infinity War, in Antman And The Wasp, Marvel Studios has a refreshing light-hearted treat for its fans with humour and wit, scaled up a notch, along with a pertinent lead up to Avengers 4.
The much anticipated sequel will see Scott and his allies in the aftermath of the events of Captain America: Civil War, bridging the gap between that and Ant-Man’s next appearance in 2019’s Avengers film. Back in action are familiar faces such as Michael Douglas as Hank Pym and the laughable rogue Luis, with anticipated new recruits such as Laurence Fishburne, Walton Goggins, and the gorgeous Michelle Pfeiffer opposite Douglas. Already breaking records at overseas territories where the film has released, global reviews for the Antman sequel have been unanimously positive.
While you book your tickets to the next Marvel biggie, here are 5 things you definitely must watch out for in the film!
1. The Wasp
With this sequel being the first Marvel film to headline a super-heroine, Evangeline Lilly’s The Wasp not only has shrinking powers as well as wings for flight and blasters, but she kicks some major villainous ass, as shown in the trailers. She pairs up with Ant-Man spectacularly and even steals the show in some of the scenes, according to reviews. Along with Captain Marvel, The Wasp is one of the newest super-heroines to watch out for.
2. Michelle Pfeiffer in action
One of the most beautiful and acclaimed actresses, Michelle Pfeiffer (And who can forget Catwoman) is back to the superhero business, playing Hank Pym’s wife and the original Wasp, Janet VanDyne, who shrank down too far to stop a missile on a mission and got stranded in the Quantum Realm. How her role plays out in the film is something to watch out for.
3. Lead up to Avengers 4- a kick ass end credits scene
Global reviews have indicated a tremendously important and connective end-credit scene, that builds up to Avengers 4, and gives a hint of how Ant-Man might possibly feature in the post Infinity War scenario-definitely not to be missed if you suffer from superhero FOMO!!
4. Michael Pena’s LOL dialogues
Playing one of Scott Lang’s partners in crime, Luis, in the first Ant-Man film, Peña easily became a fan-favorite. His talent for witty and fast monologues provided some seriously comic relief in the first part. The trailers and reviews promise a more amped up humour element, specially in scenes with Michael Pena and Paul Rudd
5. Giant Ant-Man, Hello Kitty gum and lots more VFX!
A supersized Ant-Man shocking people on a yacht, a huge Hello Kitty gum machine hurtling down a busy road, car chases and superheroes galore, Ant-Man and the Wasp has the trademark Marvel crowd pleasing action sequences that will satisfy any cine-goer.
Marvel Studio’s Ant-Man And The Wasp releases on 13th July in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
