Marvel's Ant-Man and The Wasp is currently in post-production right now, and although not much has been revealed about its actual plot, we do know that Evangeline Lilly's Hope van Dyne will suit up as The Wasp and she will have to team up with Scott Lang/Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) to complete a new mission. At a recent cinema event in Russia, some people discussed the film's tone, including a surprising genre as inspiration, a genre that Marvel Studios hasn't tackled before. Here's the translation of the particular passage from Kinometro:

"Completed the presentation of projects from Marvel: BLACK PANTHER (February 15), which was presented by a fresh and rather invigorating trailer, and MAN-ANTS AND OCS . The last picture, the rental of which is scheduled for July 5, 2018, Elena Brodskaya called "the first romkomom from Marvel." On this project was shown a promo video, in general terms introducing the details of the plot and characters."

"Romkomom" is probably referring to as "Rom-Com" or "Romantic Comedy". Usually, fans would be worried if the genre was associated with a Marvel film but it'll most likely work with Ant-Man.

Back in April, director Peyton Reed told Comicbook.com to expect things never seen in a Marvel movie before, and a superhero rom-com would certainly be something unexpected.

"We've actually been holed up in the room writing the movie — myself, Paul Rudd, Adam McKay, Andrew Barrer and Gab Ferrari. So we're formulating the whole structure of the movie. And I can't really tell you too much yet, except there are going to be things in this movie that you've never seen in any movie before. It's going to be nuts!"

Ant-Man and The Wasp will hit U.S. theaters on July 6, 2018.
