The first trailer for the film is snappy and fun, even as Scott, Hope, and Hank Pym are fugitives on the run followingScottsdefeat alongsideSteve Rogers team inCaptain America: Civil War. But now that Hope is suited up, theyre much better off. The first film alreadyshowed that Hope was smarter, faster, and a better fighter than Scott (though hes steadily catching up), and she finally gets to prove it in a new and improved suit that boasts wings and blasters, courtesy of her doting father Hank. And although the situation seems more dire in this sequel, there are still peeks of the light-hearted whimsy that the firstAnt-Man broughtthe slow-motion Hello Kitty PEZ dispenser getting launched at a pursuing motorcyclist is straight uphilarious.

Ant-Man and the Wasp has been touted as the first romantic-comedy from Marvel, which would certainly make use of the films charming and rom-com-ready stars. Rudd and Lilly didnt get much time to bond (onscreen) in the first heist-heavy film, but already theyre showing tons of sparks in the trailer.

But that doesnt distract fromAnt-Man and the Wasps pivotal place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The movie will delve into the Quantum Realm,a Marvel alternate dimensionaccessible through magical energy, mystical transportation, or by the scientific shrinking caused by the Pym Particles. We got a glimpse of the realm in the firstAnt-Man, but its sequel will follow Scott and Hope as they try to safely access the Quantum Realm. There have been plenty of hints that the Quantum Realm will play a big part in the upcomingAvengers: Infinity War as well, so its safe to saymore so than for the fairly isolated romp that wasAnt-ManthatAnt-Man and the Wasp will be required viewing for Marvel fans.
