With all eyes fixed on May's Avengers: Infinity War and the long-awaited trailer, Marvel's other 2018 films are flying a bit under the radar, none more so than Ant-Man and The Wasp. We don't know much about the film yet, but as we inch closer, we're getting more glimpses at the return of Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne. One of those glimpses came during HBO's Night of Too Many Stars benefit show for autism when Paul Rudd answered viewer questions while wearing the new Ant-Man suit. We've already gotten a look at The Wasp's costume for the film, and now we get to see what Scott Lang will be rocking. Check it out below.
Maybe I need to see I Love You, Man again because I don't remember anything being that memorable in that movie. As far as Ant-Man's costume goes, the upgrade here seems in keeping with the costume evolutions we have seen in previous Marvel movies. The color scheme retains the muted black and metallic red seen in Ant-Man but with a slightly different texture. Overall the costume looks much more streamlined and has a cleaner design. The metal piping that outlined the original costume is mostly gone. It looks like it was made for heroics and is less pieced together. Like Captain America and Thor before him, the costume has evolved from a more comic-booky, cheap looking outfit to something that looks more utilitarian and built for combat. My guess is that Scott Lang's new role of full-time hero necessitated the upgrade. So, like Peter Parker before him, Scott Lang is probably the beneficiary of Stark Industries superhero fashion division's couture designs.
Ant-Man and The Wasp holds a great deal of interest for MCU fans as it is the first film to follow the no doubt seismic Avengers: Infinity War, so obviously, plot details are scarce. But it is believed that the two heroes will attempt to rescue Hope's mother, Janet, from the Quantum Realm. The film has recently finished shooting and will see the return of Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas and Judy Greer alongside newcomers Walton Goggins, Hannah John-Kamen, Laurence Fishburne and Michelle Pfeiffer as the lost Janet van Dyne. The original film raked in a cool $519 million worldwide and has become a fan favorite since it's release. Ant-Man and the Wasp will likely top that as fans now know the character and will be eager to see what happens as Phase 3 approaches its end.
Peyton Reed returns to helm Ant-Man and The Wasp, which is scheduled for release on July 6, 2018. For all the biggest movies coming out next year, check out our 2018 release schedule and for all the latest in superhero high fashion, stay tuned to CinemaBlend.
