New Ant-Man and the Wasp Poster Indicates a Costume Change for Hope


Included among the recently released set of character posters for Ant-Man and the Wasp is one featuring Evangeline Lilly's Hope in her now-familiar superhero costume... but with a very noticeable change.

While the overall design of the Wasp suit appears to be exactly what we've seen in various images, trailers and commercials promoting the Marvel Studios film, the costume in the new poster features a new, much brighter color scheme, resulting in dramatically different look for the hero.

Whether the new colors are something that will feature throughout the film, or if it's an indication of how the character will change over the course of the movie is, of course, unknown. But the fact that Marvel would release an image that is so strikingly different from previous photos and footage is intriguing enough to make us wonder whether there's a significant plot point being teased.
