It’s time to “get down” to business! Marvel’s “Ant-Man the Wasp” opens next week, returning of our favorite small-scale superheroes to the big screen. And to help prepare for the latest sure-to-be-blockbuster entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Disney and Marvel Studios held a star-studded press conference for the movie in Southern California over this past weekend.
On the panel were “Ant-Man and The Wasp” cast members Paul Rudd (Scott Lang / Ant-Man), Evangeline Lilly (Hope Van Dyne / Wasp), Laurence Fishburne (Dr. Bill Foster), Hannah John-Kamen (Ava / Ghost), and of course the legendary Michael Douglas (Dr. Hank Pym). Joining them were director Peyton Reed (returning from the first “Ant-Man” movie) and Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige.
WARNING: There are some scattered spoilers for the movie throughout this discussion.
