I was very fortunate to have been on set of Ant-Man and The Wasp at Pinewood Studios. We had the chance to interview Director Peyton Reed, Abby Ryder Forston, Evangeline Lilly, and Paul Rudd. We also had the chance to walk on Hank Pym’s lab set which was unbelievably cool. So of course, I was excited to see that Ant-Man and the Wasp is now available on DVD and Digital Download. If you have not seen this movie I will tell you that is AWESOME and a perfect sequel to Ant-Man.
ABOUT ANT-MAN AND THE WASP:
In “Ant-Man and The Wasp,” Scott Lang is grappling with the consequences of his choices, as both the Super Hero Ant-Man and a father, in the aftermath of “Captain America: Civil War.” As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym with an urgent new mission to rescue Janet van Dyne from the Quantum Realm. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside The Wasp, all while attempting to serve house arrest, assist fast talking-Luis (Michael Peña) and the X-con Security crew, and thwart the efforts of a new adversary called Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) and her ally Bill Foster (Laurence Fishburne).
