Marvel’s official Twitter feed just confirmed that production has begun on ‘Ant-Man and The Wasp’, and marked the occasion with a brilliant video which shows where Ant-Man and The Wasp will spend their down-time between takes.
Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly are both returning for their respective roles, but this time Lilly’s Hope van Dyne will don her mother’s Wasp costume, as teased at the end of the first film. It was also recently confirmed that Michelle Pfeiffer has been cast as the original Wasp, Janet van Dyne, mother of Hope and wife of Hank (Michael Douglas).

We also have an updated synopsis for the film, which is as follows:
“From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink: “Ant-Man and The Wasp.” In the aftermath of “Captain America: Civil War,” Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a Super Hero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) and Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside The Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from their past.”
