Ant-Man and The Wasp Will Cure Your Post-Infinity War Blues

Still reeling from Marvel’s mega-epic from this past weekend? You’re not alone, and you’re probably looking for something a bit lighter now. Thankfully, Ant-Man and The Wasp looks like the perfect follow-up to Infinity War. Well, besides the fact it takes place before Infinity War.

In the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang has retired his suit. This changes when Hank Pym and Hope van Dyne come calling, leading to a team up with Hope as the Wasp. We knew all this from the first trailer, though. What’s new in this one? The villain! This trailer gives fans their first in-action look at Hannah John-Kamen’s Ghost, a villain capable of phasing through objects. Unsurprisingly, she seems to fit in very well with the visual coolness of the heroes aiming to stop her.

Typically Ghost is a male villain in the comics, but for this version of the character, director Peyton Reed decided to go with a woman:

“The Ghost character could be male, female, anything, so it just seemed more interesting to us [to cast a woman],” says Reed.

Sounds good to me. He really shouldn’t have to explain further.

Other than these looks at Ghost, this trailer showed off more of the fun same you expect. Lots of size changes, lots of Evangeline Lilly’s Wasp kicking ass, and lots of the good humor that made Ant-Man a fun watch the first time around. After the heavy, universe-deciding stakes of Infinity War, this is the perfect way to relax and just enjoy a Marvel film. I just hope it doesn’t end how fans are thinking it might in the aftermath of the latest Avengers movie.

Ant-Man and The Wasp arrives in theaters on July 6.
