Welcome back to my blog! This afternoon I’m excited to talk to you guys about the new Ant-Man and Wasp movie that will be coming out this July. Sorry this post is so soon but I have to post early to make it to a con! So at least you’re in for a special treat tonight! This film comes out after Infinity Wars, but the movie’s timeline takes place right after the Civil War. In the new movie Scott Lang must face the consequences of going against the government’s Scovian Accords or Heroes Registration Act after he teamed up with Captain America. If you haven’t seen Civil War, then fair warning there will be spoilers.
After Scott’s team up with Cap at the airport battle and once he’s managed to escape the isolated island prison he ends up back home only to be put under house arrest. If you’ve seen the previous Ant-Man you know that Lang has a problem with following the law and trying to be there for his family; especially his daughter Cassie. Once again, Dr. Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man needs his help with a new mission. This time though Pym’s daughter, Hope Van Dyne, will no longer be on the sidelines during the action as she takes on her M.I.A. mother’s role of being The Wasp. Together the two of them will battle new foes with new superhero suits.
Lang has upgraded his Giant-Man suit and will be sure to use it in this film. Meanwhile Dyne’s suit is fully upgraded with new material and wrist blasters that are sure to pack a mean sting. Another thing her suit has that Lang’s doesn’t have are fully functional wasp wings that can help Dyne fly around. I’m not sure what these wings are made of, but I hope they explain the new tech during the movie. Furthermore, our beloved Luis will be returning in this film as well and will probably do what he does best and explain things in the longest narration he can manage.
What else that’s new is the female villain, the Ghost, that will be played by Hannah John-Kamen. Traditionally Ghost is an Iron Man villain but considering the fact that in Avengers 2 they decided to make Ultron’s creator Tony and not Dr. Pym like he was in the comics it makes sense that the Ghost will now be an Ant-Man villain. Ghost was also originally an unknown male scientist in his origin who was a data engineer and the creator of Ghost Tech. This was a new type of computer chip that phased into an intangible state before overheating all the while staying active in the said state. After a series of events, the Ghost merged his body with the tech he created and obtained cyberpathic powers. His other skills in the comics include marksmanship, tactician, hacker, and genius-level-intellect while his suit provided him invisibility, intangibility, and stealth. Since there’s only one trailer out so far, I have no clue what the Ghost’s story is in the new film is nor do I know if she’ll have most of these powers.
Readers will just have to wait and see what’s in store this July when the movie hits the big screen. It’s bound to be action-packed and hilarious as well. Hopefully, it will also get our minds off of whatever will go down in Infinity Wars; especially since it will end on a cliffhanger before the untitled Avengers 4 movie. I’ll be catching you guys for my next blog.
