New Concept Art Gives Us Our First Look at Wasp From ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’

Ant-Man Wasp
Marvel

One of the coolest parts of Marvel’s Ant-Man was the final tease of a superheroic future for Evangeline Lilly’s Hope van Dyne as the Wasp. It was also one of the more frustrating parts of Ant-Man, since we waited the whole movie to see Hope cut loose only to see her costumed alter ego put on hold until a potential sequel. Now the sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp, is less than a year away, and Hope’s moment in the sun is finally almost here.

So is D23, Disney’s semiannual celebration of itself and its intensely devoted fandom. The whole thing kicks off this weekend, where we should see lots of news on the Marvel front. Marvel’s Visual Development Supervisor Andy Park (who is a great follow on Twitter, because he’s constantly sharing cool Marvel images and art) is already on the ground at D23 and he’s started tweeting pictures. Like this first piece of concept art of Hope in costume as the Wasp in Ant-Man and the Wasp:

The illustration does look very similar to the shot of the Wasp costume from Ant-Man (seen above). I’m honestly a little surprised it looks so much like the the one from the previous movie. The Wasp of comics (technically Hope’s mom Janet) is notorious for changing her costume constantly. Hope’s not a clotheshorse, I guess.

Ant-Man and the Wasp, like the first movie, will be directed by Peyton Reed and stars Paul Rudd as the diminutive Marvel hero, Scott Lang. The cast will also include Michael Pena, Randall Park, and Michael Douglas, reprising his role as the original Ant-Man, Hank Pym. It’s also worth noting, AMatW is also the first Marvel Cinematic Universe after Avengers: Infinity War, so the MCU could look really different by next July when the Wasp finally gets to fly.
