Michelle Pfeiffer to Star in Ant-Man and the Wasp

ANT-MAN AND THE WASP is now filming and is set for a June 29 release date next year.

The Marvel panel at San Diego Comic-Con ran late tonight, but it seems like it was worth the wait. Ant-Man is shown riding on his daughter's back. The clip featured several shots of the wasp in action. Following Scott Lang's return from the quantum realm in 2015's Ant-Man, Pym was left wondering whether or not it was possible that Janet could still be alive. Michelle Pfeiffer, on the other hand, will be Janet Van Dyne, Hank Pym's supposedly deceased wife. In the comics, the Wasp was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and first appeared in 1963's Tales to Astonish #44. She has even led the group of superheroes at one time. She also has an electrostatic blast and the ability to control insects. The costume color though is of significance, it is yellow which is in contrast with Ant-Man's red. Still, expect to see shades of their legendarily fraught partnership and teases to their earliest adventures in the new movie. Like Ghost, Burch started mostly as a corporate Iron Man villain, associated with Cross Technologies - the big bad of the first Ant-Man film, and instantly making sense why he'd be here.

Michelle Pfeiffer, who memorably played Catwoman in the '90s film Batman Returns, is shifting to another comic cinematic universe, and has been cast at Janet van Dyne in the upcoming Ant-Man sequel. Laurence Fishburne is also set to star as Bill Foster, better known as Giant-Man. The character was created by Stan Lee and Don Heck in 1966. If you're unfamiliar, Goliath is a researcher ally of Hank Pym's.
