The titular Ant-Man and the Wasp appear together fully suited up in a new photo, but for more eagle-eyed Marvel fans, it also offers a glimpse at the newly rebuilt Pym Technologies.

Released Tuesday morning by Marvel, the new image shows our first look at Evangeline Lily’s Hope van Dyne completely suited up as the Wasp. She’s standing alongside Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang in a new version of the Ant-Man suit.

Not only is this new the first time we’ve seen these two shrinkable heroes suited up together, but it’s the first look we get of Hope with her Wasp helmet on. In the image released by actress Evangeline Lily in August, the helmet was missing.

We don’t know a whole lot about when or where the Ant-Man sequel takes place beyond “the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War,” but the recent image offers a new setting that might be where Ant-Man and the Wasp train to become a team.

Here’s the new image:

Ant-Man and the Wasp fully suited up.

Based on the logo on a glass door behind them, we can safely assume they’re inside a Pym Technologies lab.

You can see on the glass door behind them — on the left side — a blue logo and some unreadable text. The logo itself is a 2D rendering of a molecular structure, and it’s absolutely the logo that Hank Pym used for Pym Technologies.

Fans might remember that in the first Ant-Man, Darren Cross forced Pym out of his own company and rebranded it as Cross Technologies. But by the end of the film, Team Ant-Man destroyed the whole building. Apparently, the original Ant-Man — Hank Pym — must have come out of retirement to literally and figuratively rebuild his company. His newfound curiosity about the Quantum Realm must have fueled that.

This Ant-Man sequel will be the first Marvel film to release after Avengers: Infinity War, but the official synopsis mentions “the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War,” which probably means this takes place around the same time as Spider-Man: Homecoming instead.

We also know that Evangeline Lily won’t appear in an Avengers movie until the currently untitled Avengers 4, making Ant-Man and the Wasp the Wasp’s origin story.

We'll probably never see this helmet again.

Will we learn more about how Pym Technologies was rebuilt and whether or not the Quantum Realm might impact Thanos’ assault on Earth in an emerging Marvel multiverse? Probably. For all we know, Ant-Man’s quantum realm could make all the difference in the fight against the Mad Titan.


Ant-Man and the Wasp is slated for release July 6, 2018.

Pretty much every hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe rallied to fight Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War (they lost, but that’s not the point). One hero, though, was totally MIA after a brief bout with the Mad Titan at the start of the movie: the Hulk. Fans assumed the Hulk wouldn’t emerge when Bruce Banner tried to transform because the big green guy was scared of Thanos, but one of the film’s directors says that, actually, the Hulk isn’t a giant baby scaredy cat, thank you very much.

Thor’s electrifying arrival to Infinity War’s climactic battle in Wakanda might’ve just been the most thrilling moment in a movie full of thrilling moments, but it left some fans puzzled. How did Thor, Groot, and Rocket know where to go? Over the weekend, Infinity War’s directors revealed the answer, tying up a small plot hole that, to be honest, didn’t really need to be tied up.

It’s not fair to blame the mustache Henry Cavill had for Mission: Impossible — Fallout for ruining Justice League, mostly because Superman’s weird CGI lip honestly didn’t even crack the top ten of that movie’s problems. But, it turns out that Fallout’s director Chris McQuarrie tried to help Justice League out.

With Spider-Man firmly planted in the MCU, Sony is doing its best to launch a new Spidey cinematic universe of its own (seemingly without the web-slinging hero). First up is Venom, which is getting a lot of buzz thanks to its depiction of Tom Hardy as a dark anti-hero who calls his enemies “turds” and runs amok in a version of New York with no Spider-Man in sight.

It began with a flash.

In a 1959 issue of The Flash, the iconic DC superhero met his match, quite literally, in the form of a parallel universe version of The Flash from “Earth-2.” This marked the introduction of the multiverse (the scientific theory that there are multiple, parallel universes), and it had a ripple effect throughout popular culture. From the novels of Stephen King to modern TV shows like Stranger Things and Rick and Morty, multiverse theory is everywhere.
