So far, we’ve had precious little news on Ant-Man & The Wasp other than a few character confirmations and story speculation, but we’ve now got an official image to share of the titular duo in their slightly changed super suits standing around in the lab looking fly. That’s about all there is to learn about it, to be honest.
More importantly, where is the trailer? Why are we having to wait to see Paul Rudd being charming and Evangeline Lily kicking ass in her new guise? Have we not been through enough?
Obviously, it’s still more than six months until the film comes out, but it lands in cinemas just a couple of weeks after Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, whose first teaser has been out for a while now. And Oceans 8 and The Incredibles 2 have both had trailers too, and they’re right in front of Ant-Man’s sequel.
Perhaps Marvel are waiting to push a bit more hype onto Black Panther (they don’t need to, it’s going to make an absolute fortune and considerably more than Ant-Man & The Wasp probably) and we’ll see the first trailer for the sequel closer to that release. But if you think about it logically, the sequel comes in the wake of two of the most heavily hyped Marvel films ever and unless Infinity War gives us a BIG reason to see Ant-Man suit up again immediately afterwards, it might seem like a bit of a shift down in gears too far.
But then if that’s how you feel about any Paul Rudd film you don’t deserve him anyway.
