Ant-Man and the Wasp Begins Production, Reveals New Plot Summary and Logo


By: Michaela Bush

Baskin-Robbins knows everything – so should you! In case you missed it, Marvel recently released a synopsis for the 2018 film Ant-Man and the Wasp, in addition to a handful of other announcements involving a teaser trailer, production, and casting – even a new logo, which was tweeted by the movie’s director, Peyton Reed. As for the new (but not very explanatory, of course) synopsis, here it is:

“From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink: Ant-Man and the Wasp. In the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a superhero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) and Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside The Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from their past.”

This isn’t the first movie depicting a superhero attempting to re-regulate their lifestyle after a major battle or when they become the titular hero, of course. Iron Man 2 & 3 come to mind; even – in part – Captain America: The Winter Soldier. This will be, however, the first superhero in the MCU who has to consider their child in the mix of things, and is otherwise an ordinary guy, not a billionaire or someone who got frozen in an iceberg. How do you think the events of Civil War will affect Rudd and his already precarious relationship with his daughter and her mother?

The movie also began production in Atlanta, Georgia earlier this month. Michael Douglas, Paul Rudd, Michael Pena, Tip “T.I.” Harris, David Dastmalchian, Judy Greer, Abby Ryder Forston, and Evangeline Lilly will be reprising their roles; Laurence Fishburne, Hannah John-Kamen, Randall Park, Walton Goggins, Bobby Cannavale, and Michelle Pfeiffer will be joining the cast to expand the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
