New Comic-Con details emerge for ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’

Ant-Man and the Wasp - SDCC 2017 Poster

Well, this is a pleasant surprise.

To kick off this year’s Marvel Studios panel, a hilarious segment was shown featuring Paul Rudd and Michael Peña. In it, the two actors begin breaking down every film that Marvel Studios has ever released. Although Marvel Studios’ 10th anniversary is coming up, this breakdown wasn’t exactly celebrating that. The surprise came when Michelle Pfeiffer shows up at the very end. This breakdown was actually a pitch to Pfeiffer to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Janet van Dyne. The pitch seemingly worked because Pfeiffer has officially joined the cast of Ant-Man and the Wasp. No one seems to be happier about the news than her movie daughter, Evangeline Lilly:

Next, the presentation continued which showcased various concept art from Ant-Man and The Wasp. First, we have our first look at Hope van Dyne in action. It shows the Wasp flying up to a ledge and looking down. Next, audiences saw a tiny Ant-Man riding on a little girl’s backpack—presumably his daughter’s. However, the biggest reveal showed Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) wearing his own superhero suit. Finally, a pre-visual effect sequence was shown. This scene showed a car chase between a van and another car. The van proceeded to shrink and drive underneath another car. All of a sudden, the van grows to a normal size which flips and disables the car. Suddenly, we see Giant-Man peeking out of an alleyway.

To close out the Ant-Man and the Wasp section of the panel, Kevin Feige came on-stage to confirm film’s new cast members. In addition to Michelle Pfeiffer, Laurence Fishburne joins the cast as Bill Foster a.k.a. Goliath. In the comics, Bill Foster became Giant Man after Hank Pym gave up the mantle. Hannah John-Kamen will be playing Ghost—a character who’s originally an Iron Man villain. In the comics, the character is an industrial saboteur who worked for whoever served his best interests. Rounding out the cast is Walter Goggins as Sonny Burch and Randall Park as Agent Jimmy Woo.
