Preview – Antman and the Wasp

Antman and the Wasp

They say big things come in small packages, and that’s certainly the case in Paul Rudd’s second time out in the MCU in Peyton Reed’s 2018 superhero-flick, Antman and the Wasp.

Rudd returns as Scott Lang who struggles with his duties as both a superhero and father as he remains under house-arrest following his involvement in the events of Captain America: Civil War. Joining Rudd in the sequel are Michael Douglass and Michelle Pfeiffer who reprise their roles as Hank Pym and his wife, Hope, while Evangeline Lilly takes on a larger role as Lang’s super-powered partner, The Wasp. Michael Pena also returns and is joined by MCU newcomers Lawrence Fishburne, Walton Goggins and Hannah John-Kamen who make up the film’s ensemble of antagonists.

After two-years of house arrest, Scott Lang attempts to re-establish contact with genius-inventor Hank Pym and his daughter, Hope, who has since taken up the mantle of the Wasp in Antman’s absence. Juggling his legal responsibilities with a new quest to rescue Pym’s wife from the Quantum realm, the appearance of a mysterious new villain throws a spanner in the works for Scott and his friends and threatens to get the shape-shifting supers outlawed.

Antman and the Wasp – Friday 8:00pm on Sky Premiere.
