Ant-Man and the Wasp is one of those films that’s quietly in production right now. It’s not the biggest Marvel property out there, and its predecessor, Ant-Man, was by no means the biggest hit, but it came in as a very solid entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With its more grounded narrative and lighthearted tone, it made for the perfect palate cleanser after the distinctly sci-fi Avengers: Age of Ultron.

As such, it’s no wonder that it did well enough to warrant a sequel. Luckily for us there’s a lot from them to mine from still — not just from the comics, but from all the setup the previous film did. Two of these things have to do with the Wasp herself, the younger of which is played by Evangeline Lilly, and the older of which is played by Michelle Pfeiffer. On the list of Wasp question marks is “what does her outfit look like?”

Well, Lilly has an answer for you.

It’s not a bad look, and it feels very much in sync with the rest of the attire in the MCU. We got a taste of this outfit at the end of Ant-Man, but of course, expected some changes to it, because Marvel is always changing things up. So what are the big differences?

Well, on the whole, it looks very similar, but the biggest change seems to be in the color scheme. It goes for a darker aesthetic rather than the bright yellow, which is admittedly a hell of a lot more practical. Additionally, it looks like they opted to give her full sleeve protection which, given the armor-like nature of her suit, makes sense.

We’re digging it so far, and it makes Hope van Dyne look like a bona fide badass. We can’t wait to see her in action!

Ant-Man and the Wasp hits theaters on July 6, 2018.
