Ant-Man and The Wasp Has Officially Begun Its Production

Posted 2017/08/01 0 0

Marvel announced that production has officially started on “Ant-Man and the Wasp” with a 14-second video focusing on two shrunken production chairs.

 

Ant-Man & The Wasp has kicked off production! Marvel made the announcement with a teaser video that showcases the film's logo and culminates with a set of appropriately-tiny director's chairs for the titular toplining duo.

This new video is an adorable way to celebrate that Ant-Man and the Wasp is finally starting production. The film is hotly anticipated, mostly because it will be the first time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that a female superhero will be a titular lead of a film. While Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow has been a major player in all three phases of the MCU, she wasn't been rewarded her own solo movie or a title grab. Instead she's appeared in the Iron Man, Captain America, and Avengers franchises.

Peyton Reed returns to the director’s chair with Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly set to return as the eponymous superheroes alongside Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, Michael Peña as Luis, and T.I. as Dave. Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Abby Ryder Fortson, and David Dastmalchian also reprise their supporting roles in the sequel.

They’ll be joined by newcomers Laurence Fishburne as Dr. Bill Foster (a.k.a. Goliath), Walton Goggins (Justified) as Sonny Burch, Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet van Dyne, and Hannah John-Kamen (Black Mirror) as Ghost, and Randall Park (Fresh off the Boat) as Jimmy Woo.

In the sequel, Rudd’s Scott Lang grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a superhero and a father in the aftermath of “Captain America: Civil War.” As he struggles to once again balance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym with a new mission. Scott, with the ability to shrink, must again put on his suit and learn to fight alongside the Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from their past.

Ant-Man and the Wasp will arrive in theaters on July 6, 2018.
