In the summer of 2015, Paul Rudd made both a small and giant leap into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) as reformed criminal turned superhero Scott Lang in “Ant-Man”. However, he was back on the wrong side of the law when he joined Team Cap (Chris Evans) against Team Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) a year later in “Captain America: Civil War”.
Now, this summer’s “Ant-Man and The Wasp” finds Lang still a wanted man. This time, though, he’s not alone, as Evangeline Lily will be suiting up as Hope van Dyne, the other half of this titular superhero supercouple. Oscar winner Michael Douglas is also back as Lang’s mentor and Hope’s father Hank, the original Ant-Man. Co-starring Laurence Fishburne, “Ant-Man and The Wasp” finds Scott and Hope learning to work together as the duo and Hank tackle new threats that involves secrets from the van Dyne’s past.
The film is first for the MCU to have a female superhero headlining: making it somewhat a precursor to next year’s “Captain Marvel” starring Brie Larson. “Ant-Man and The Wasp” also features Michelle Pfeiffer – aka Catwoman from “Batman Returns” – as original Wasp Janet van Dyne, Hank’s wife and Hope’s mother.
At the 2018 North American International Auto Show, Hyundai announced that its 2019 Veloster would “play a significant role” in the film. The heroic scene showcases the Veloster’s capabilities in serving as the ultimate escape vehicle as the tailing cars can’t handle the speed and handling of the Veloster—no matter its size.
Part of ‘Phase Three’ in the MCU, “Ant-Man and The Wasp” is set for size on July 6.
