‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ international trailer, Evangeline Lilly teases her origin story

A new international trailer for Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp arrived, teasing a bit more footage. Additionally, star Evangeline Lilly teased a different kind of origin story for her character, Hope van Dyne/The Wasp, in the new film.

Check out the video at the bottom.

Lilly tells USA Today that fans can expect a different kind of origin story for her character in the upcoming film.

“You’ve never seen a superhero origin story with less blunders. She knows what she’s doing, and she’s been grooming herself for this moment her whole life. The satisfaction in watching her finally get to live it out is really fun.”

Hope’s transition into the role of hero, taking up the mantle of her mother in the first film’s closing post-credits scene excited fans. Moreover, the casting of Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet van Dyne, mother of Hope (Lilly), who was the original Wasp, is even more interesting. No surprise, Michael Douglas will reprise his role as Hank Pym.

The film looks to keep the more upbeat and humorous tone of the original while officially bringing The Wasp to the big screen, a strong plan considering the comedic skills of star Paul Rudd.

A bit from the trailers/teasers reveal that Rudd will also enlarge into Giant Man, a look that is now being teased on t-shirts and promotional material.

New to this film Walton Goggins (Justified, Tomb Raider), Hannah John-Kamen as well as Laurence Fishburne as Dr. Bill Foster and Randall Park as Jimmy Woo.

Hannah John-Kamen is playing Ghost, while Goggins is taking on the role of a weapons designer, Sonny Burch.

In the comic books, Fishburne’s Foster acquires the ability to grow into a giant-sized baddie named Goliath.

Ant-Man and the Wasp also stars Michael Peña, Bobby Cannavale,  Judy Greer, Tip “T.I.” Harris, David Dastmalchian and Abby Ryder-Fortson.

Peyton Reed is returning to direct the sequel. Kevin Feige is producing with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Stephen Broussard, Charles Newirth, and Stan Lee serving as executive producers.

Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, Rudd, Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari wrote the screenplay.

Ant-Man and the Wasp hits theaters on July 6, 2018.
