Ant-man and the Wasp

Ant-man and the Wasp

The trailer for Ant-man and the Wasp just came out so I thought I would share. I am guessing that the Wasp might get her own film at some point, hence it isn’t ‘Ant-man 2’. I don’t know why Ant-man is hyphenated while Superman, Batman, and – surely the closest in terminology and in the same universe – Spiderman, aren’t. It is a mystery.

I also get confused with Ant-man when he gets big. My understanding is that the gaps between atoms are shrunk so that he has the same mass but at different sizes. So when small he is like a 180-pound object the size of a bullet. Which is why he can pack a punch. When he is the size of a jumbo jet he would still weigh the same but is bigger. So why can he squash things, like cars, that a normal 180-pound man can’t? It doesn’t make sense. Looks pretty shitting cool though, so I am happy they went with it.

The Wasp looks great in this and I don’t just mean that Evangeline Lilly is ridiculously attractive. She can fly and shoot stuff. Paul Rudd is always good for a laugh and it looks like they are having a lot of fun with the Pym shrinking technology. Plus I loved the first Ant-man movie, so am pretty excited about this one.

Anyway, I will stop waffling. Here is the trailer:

I know it sounds like a bizarre comic book hero to choose¬†but Ant-Man will soon be on our screens and the trailer actually looks quite fun. I knew Ant-Man existed but have never read any of the comics because, well it sounded a bit daft. Although I was certainly more aware of Ant-Man than I was of Guardians of the Galaxy and GOTG is now one of my favourite films of all time, and that had a raccoon and a tree as two of its main characters. Marvel’s taking slightly out there comic material and having fun with it.

So take the new Ant-Man trailer with a pinch of salt because that is the tone in which it is meant to be taken. Paul Rudd is generally a pretty funny guy and I think this has potential. Here is the new Ant-Man trailer. Enjoy:
