Ant-Man and the Wasp is a sequel to two films: Kevin Feige
The film is slated for release in India on July 13 in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu
Paul Rudd's Ant-Man and the Wasp will take the story of the franchise forward and continue the plot of Captain America: Civil War as well, says Marvel Studios President, Kevin Feige.
Directed by Peyton Reed, the film is set between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. Rudd's Scott Lang/Ant-Man is grappling with the consequences of his choices as a superhero and a father. Ant-Man and Evangeline Lilly's Hope van Dyne/The Wasp team up after Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) asks them to battle Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen), who has the ability to be invisible and intangible.
"It is really a sequel to two films. It's a follow-up to Ant-Man, while also showing the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War," says Feige. "For me, there is a tremendous amount of excitement when you are able to tell stories like this and combine characters from their origin films and then layer in their appearances from other films. Because of this strategy, Ant-Man post-Civil War has now been exposed to a much bigger audience," he adds.
The film, which also features Michael Pena and Michelle Pfeiffer, is slated for release in India on July 13 in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
