The official runtime for Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp has been revealed ahead of the film’s release next month.
Ant-Man and the Wasp is just under two hours long as the Marvel film clocks in at 118 minutes. The first Ant-Man movie had a running time of 117 minutes, so the two films are almost just as long.
The first Marvel Studios film to follow Avengers: Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp brings back Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne as the two team up to stop a mysterious threat and save Janet van Dyne from the Quantum Realm. It’s said that the film will also reveal what the two heroes were up to during the events of Infinity War.
Early tracking suggests that Ant-Man and the Wasp‘s opening box office numbers will eclipse the ones of the first film. According to early tracking, Marvel’s latest adventure is gearing up for a $75 million opening weekend.
In the sequel, Paul Rudd returns as Scott Lang alongside Evangeline Lilly, who suits up as the Wasp this time around. Michael Douglas, Michael Peña and David Dastmalchian are also back, with Peyton Reed returning to the director’s chair. Here’s the synopsis:
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 (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 (Lilly) and Dr. Hank Pym (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.
