Marvel’s movie about tiny superheroes comes out this summer

With all the buzz over the recently released Avengers: Infinity War, it’s been easy to forget that Marvel has another superhero movie coming out this summer. To help audiences remember, the studio has just released a new trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Like the original teaser from January, the new trailer (which Marvel coyly promoted earlier in the week with an Infinity War star-studded video) shows off plenty of shrinking superhero action by Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and his new partner, Wasp (Evangeline Lilly). We also get a good look at Ant-Man and the Wasp’s mysterious new foe Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) for the first time. Luis (Michael Peña) aptly wraps up the current state of things to Hank Pym (Michael Douglas): “She stole your tech. Now she wants to take over the world, or whatever.”

Based on what we’ve seen so far, Ant-Man and the Wasp is set before the events of Avengers: Infinity War. (So you’ll probably be safe from spoilers.) It focuses on the aftermath of Ant-Man’s decision to join Steve Rogers in Captain America: Civil War. It also looks like the ongoing attempt to rescue Hank Pym’s wife Janet Van Dyne — otherwise known as the original Wasp — from “the quantum realm” will be coming up, too.

Ant-Man and the Wasp hits theaters July 6th.
