Ant-Man And The Wasp: 10 Reasons To Be Excited

How can you not be excited for more bite-sized action?

With trailers for Thor: Ragnarok, Justice League, The Defenders and, most sneakily of all, Avengers: Infinity War all finding their way into the public arena one way or another, it's fair to say that Comic Con 2017 didn't half leave an impact. Unfortunately, though, some of the other comic book movie properties set to hit cinemas in the next couple of years didn't dominate online conversation as much as they deserved to. Chief among them was Ant-Man and The Wasp.

Obviously anything competing with The Avengers for screen-time is going to struggle, but come on, did we all forget just how brilliant the first Ant-Man was? Or how brilliant his appearance in Captain America: Civil War was? The character's got some major onscreen capital, and, with Evangeline Lilly's Wasp now (quite rightly) getting equal billing for the sequel, their follow-up appearance is shaping up to be something rather special indeed.

The newly announced castings of Michelle Pfeiffer and Laurence Fishburne already offer indication that the sequel is striving for bigger and better things, and with the newly tapped potential of a Cold War setting looming, it's clear that, once again, Ant-Man will be leading the charge when it comes to reinventing the Marvel as we know it.
