Hope Takes Charge in New Ant-Man and the Wasp TV Spot

Being under house arrest is actually more peaceful than working, it turns out. At least that’s the case when you’re a superhero who has to save the world from a dangerous new supervillain. If Ant-Man and the Wasp are going to stop the Ghost, first they have to get him out of the house in this new spot.

Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) reveals the origin of the newest threat in the Marvel Universe. The Ghost was unleashed in a lab, and apparently she is powerful enough to destroy the entire world. Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) is serving time at home, spending his days relaxing and practicing playing the drums. Luckily, Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Hope have an easy way to break him out. You can’t be stuck inside when your apartment building is the size of a small suitcase. Change out of those pajamas, Scott. It is time to save the world.

This spot really highlights all the great things about the Wasp that we have been looking forward to. It is a good thing for Scott that Hope has joined the team. He definitely needs her. Hope is smart, savvy, and stays much more focused than he does. She has the smarts to figure out the high-tech way that the Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) came to be, which hopefully means she can figure out how to defeat her.

Hope also grounds the goofy Scott. She’s a fixer who thinks outside the box, especially when the box is an entire building shrunk down to size. There is no room for excuses when she’s around. She serves up some serious attitude in this spot, and we are with you, sister. There is no time for messing around when you’re 60 feet tall. Hope might be the newest on the team, but she could easily become the best asset in short order.

Ant-Man and the Wasp flies into theaters July 6.
