First ANT-MAN AND THE WASP Trailer Teases The Ghost
You never knew Hello Kitty Pez dispensers could be so deadly, did you?
Marvel has released the first teaser trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp, the upcoming sequel to the 2015 film Ant-Man starring Paul Rudd as Ant-Man/Scott Lang and Evangeline Lilly as The Wasp/Hope Van Dyne.
The one-minute, 40-second trailer opens following the events of Captain America: Civil War, with Scott facing the consequences of his decision to stand with Captain America. "I just have one question," Scott says to Hope. "When Cap needed help, if I'd asked you, would you have come?"
"I guess we'll never know," replies Hope as we flash back to some images of Ant-Man as Giant-Man from Captain America: Civil War. "But if you had, you'd have never been caught."
We then see Scott wearing an ankle monitor and having his place searched by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "I do some dumb things," he begins, "and the people I love the most pay the price."
We also see Hope and her father Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) being surrounded by armed FBI agents. "Thanks to you, we had to run," Hope tells Scott, as we see a fun scene of Hank shrinking an entire office building down to the size of a small carry-on suitcase, pulling up a handle, and wheeling it away. "We're still running."
Next, we get some fleeting images of Laurence Fishburne as Bill Foster, a gang of criminals in a car chase with Scott and Hope's van that suddenly shrinks underneath another car then expands to lift the car up off the ground, Scott as Giant-Man rising up from the water in front of a ferry filled with passengers, and our first look at Hannah John-Kamen as The Ghost.
"Maybe you just need someone watching your back," suggests Scott's daughter Cassie (Abby Ryder Fortson). "Like a partner."
Suddenly, we see various images of The Wasp in action, as she dodges a series of hurled kitchen knives and using her wings.
"Hold on," Scott says to Hank, "you gave her wings?"
"And blasters," replies Hank.
"So, I take it you didn't have that tech available for me."
"No, I did," Hank says casually.
In the final scene of trailer, we see The Wasp opening up the back of the van and hurling a small Hello Kitty Pez dispenser at someone pursuing her and Scott on a motorcycle. She quickly enlargens the Pez dispenser, creating a major obstacle that causes the rider to lose control of his bike and fall off.

Ant-Man and the Wasp is scheduled to arrive in theaters on July 6, 2018.
