In Ant-Man and The Wasp, Evangeline Lilly will reprise her role as Hope van Dyne, ultimately becoming the hero featured above. Originally, there were plans to inclue the character in Captain America: Civil War, but balancing such an important introduction with the debuts of Black Panther and Spider-Man would have undermined the character's significance, ultimately resulting in Marvel Studios holding her for the Ant-Man sequel.
With the film set to begin production this summer, it appears Marvel Studios may have plans to promote the 2018 movie at the D23 Expo which takes place in Anaheim, California this weekend.
Ant-Man was directed by Peyton Reed, with a screenplay by Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish and Adam McKay & Paul Rudd, and stars Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Tip "T.I." Harris, Anthony Mackie, Wood Harris, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, and Michael Douglas.
In Ant-Man, forced out of his own company by former protégé Darren Cross, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) recruits the talents of Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), a master thief just released from prison. Lang becomes Ant-Man, trained by Pym and armed with a suit that allows him to shrink in size, possess superhuman strength and control an army of ants. The miniature hero must use his new skills to prevent Cross, also known as Yellowjacket, from perfecting the same technology and using it as a weapon for evil.
