New ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ photo features the duo suited up for action

Marvel dropped a new photo via Instagram showing off the heroes in Ant-Man and the Wasp, side-by-side, ready for action in full costume. Check it out below.

While this new image isn’t the first look at Evangeline Lilly suited up as Hope van Dyne’s superhero alias in Ant-Man and the Wasp, it is the first time we get to see the title hero alongside co-star Paul Rudd as the returning Scott Lang.

Joining the cast for the sequel is Michelle Pfeiffer who is set to play Janet van Dyne, mother of Hope (Lilly), who was the original Wasp. Michael Douglas will reprise his role as Hank Pym.

New to this film Walton Goggins (Justified, upcoming Tomb Raider reboot), 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.

Pena talked about being thrilled to return and hinted at a third film: “…It’s a whole different kind of club to be in, the Marvel Universe. I don’t know if they’ll use me for the third movie, I still really don’t know. It’s cool to make a little bit of a mark on that Marvel Universe and it’s kind of a cool club, they run a really cool studio.”

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.

Peyton Reed is returning to direct the sequel which is set to open two months after Avengers: Infinity War on July 6, 2018.


Here’s the official synopsis:

From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes “Ant Man and the Wasp,” a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink. In the aftermath of “Captain America: Civil War,” Scott Lang grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a Super Hero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside the Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from the past.
