We have been given news that production has just begun for Ant-Man and the Wasp, and here’s the first teaser. It’s pretty small. Like literally, it’s small – we get it, though considering it’s Ant-Man.
Here’s the official synopsis for Ant-Man and the Wasp (courtesy of IMDb):
In the aftermath of ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ Scott Lang grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a Super Hero and a father. As he struggles to re-balance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym 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.
The film’s director, Peyton Reed, confirmed the news of filming through Twitter:

The synopsis confirms that the Ant-Man sequel will continue immediately after the events of Captain America: Civil War, following Scott Lang once again as an outlaw. It seems that Hank Pym and Hope Van Dyne will approach Scott aka Ant-Man for a mission that will supposedly uncover their past secrets.
We learned last month that Michelle Pfeiffer will be taking on the role of Janet Van Dyne. The ending of Ant-Man revealed that Janet was still alive and it seems that the duo of Ant-Man and the Wasp will be helping Janet return from the Quantum Realm and to the real world. We’re just speculating at this moment, nothing is confirmed.
Most of the cast from the first film is returning, such as Michael Douglas as Hank Pym and Michael Peña as Scott Lang’s talkative friend Luis. As for new characters, Randall Park (Fresh Off The Boat, The Interview) recently joined the film as S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Jimmy Woo, alongside Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix) as Dr. Bill Foster/Goliath and Michelle Pfeiffer as the late Janet Van Dyne.
Stay tuned for more updates. Ant-Man And The Wasp hits theaters on July 6 2018.
