Later this year sees the release of three films set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Interestingly enough, its last film will be none other than Ant-Man and the Wasp, the sequel to the successful 2015 film, Ant-Man.

As the title indicates, this latest outing won’t see Scott Lang tackling some mission by himself, and we’ll instead be joined by Hope van Dyne, played in the first film and this film by Evangeline Lilly. Like her mother before her, she’ll be donning the Wasp outfit. Over the past several months, we’ve seen the character in costume through set photos, but today, Disney released an official image from the film with the two characters standing side-by-side.
