Marvel announced ANT-MAN AND THE WASP is now in production. Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly are back as Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne. Michael Douglas returns as Hank Pym.
Two DC film veterans are joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the follow-up to ANT-MAN.
Plus a fan-favorite spy we have not seen in a MCU movie until now.
Michelle Pfeiffer (Catwoman in BATMAN RETURNS) will play Janet Van Dyne. In comics Janet is the Wasp, a founding member of The Avengers and Hank’s wife. In the ANT-MAN film, Janet was lost in the microverse during a mission with Hank years ago.
Lawrence Fishburne (Perry White in MAN OF STEEL) plays Dr. Bill Foster. In the comics Foster was a scientist hired by Tony Stark to assist Pym in his “Pym Particle” follow up experiments. With a formula Foster gained the ability to grow to a huge size and took on the code-names Giant Man and Black Goliath.
Agent Jimmy Woo will make his first film appearance played by Randall Park. Woo is an Asian-American FBI agent who later joined S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agents of Atlas, a super hero team that operated in the 1950’s.
Hannah John Kamen will play Ghost. Walton Goggins is playing Sonny Burch.
ANT-MAN AND THE WASP arrives July 6th.
