Doing an Ant-Man movie without The Wasp was, I think we can all agree now, was a mistake. It’s like eating chocolate chip cookies with Diet Coke, or a peanut butter sandwich without jelly – fine, I guess, but why? Anyway, that mistake is now being rectified, with the first trailer for the upcoming Marvel Studios joint Ant-Man and The Wasp.
The trailer for Ant-Man and The Wasp makes it clear that Ant-Man and his feminine sidekick will share a dynamic somewhat similar to the one shared by Maxwell Smart and Agent 99 – he’s competent at best, she’s an unstoppable killing machine, complete with wings and a wrist-mounted blaster courtesy of Dr. Pym. But for me, the real money shot of the trailer is The Wasp running across a knife blade in midair, something I always wanted somebody to do in one of those Honey I Shrunk the Kids movies, but it never happened:
Ant-Man and the Wasp comes out on July 6th.
