Although audiences worldwide are still fixated on Avengers: Infinity War, resulting in a record-smashing $630 million opening weekend, or weaving theories about the 2019 sequel, Marvel Studios is already turning its attention to the next film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, July's Ant-Man and The Wasp. The second trailer arrives on Tuesday, potentially bringing with it some clues as to the whereabouts of Paul Rudd's Scott Lang and Evangeline Lilly's Hope van Dyne during the galaxy-spanning fight against Thanos. But what time should we expect the new footage?
The sequel to 2015's Ant-Man takes place following the events of Captain America: Civil War, during which Lang is incarcerated along with most of the members of Cap's team in The Raft, the high-security prison for super-powered individuals located in the Atlantic Ocean. That is, until they were freed by Steve Rogers. Although Scott, like Clint Barton, purportedly retired from superhero life to spend more time with his family, we know from the teaser trailer released in January that he was fitted with an ankle monitor and placed on home confinement.
However, his fugitive status also created problems for Hope van Dyne and Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), who also became fugitives, no doubt because Scott used the Pym Particles in public, drawing the attention of the government. Civil War promises to be a source of tension between Scott and Hope, even as they work to retrieve her mother, Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), from the Quantum Realm.
We'll no doubt learn more about all of that, and maybe even meet Janet van Dyne, in Tuesday's trailer. Taking into account what time the first Ant-Man and The Wasp teaser dropped, and that there have been no announcements by Good Morning America or Jimmy Kimmel Live! (favored venues for Disney trailer debuts), the new trailer will most likely arrive at 9 a.m. ET/6 a.m. PT. Be sure to set your alarm, or tell your supervisor you may be a few minutes late.
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 Super Hero 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.
Opening July 6, director Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man and the Wasp stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, Evangeline Lilly as Hope van Dyne, Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet van Dyne, Judy Greer as Maggie, Bobby Canavale as Paxton, Michael Peña as Luis, T.I. as Dave, David Dastmalchian as Kurt, Walton Goggins as Sonny Burch, Hannah John-Kamen as Ghost, and Laurence Fishburne as Bill Foster.
