SDCC: Michelle Pfeifer joining Marvel's Ant-Man and the Wasp and more!


Marvel kicked off its San Diego Comic-Con panel with some typically awesome news - Michelle Pfeiffer has been tapped to play Janet van Dyne, the first Wasp and mother of Janet van Dyne.

Pfeiffer's character was mourned by Douglas who believed she was dead in 2015's "Ant-Man". With the release of the sequel, "Ant-Man and the Wasp", still nearly a year away, no new footage was ready to show. You can check out the tweet below. While the studio only brought D23 Expo attendees footage from Avengers: Infinity War, fans at SDCC were treated to a look at some of the other upcoming Marvel films. The Comic-Con poster for Ant-Man and the Wasp, painted by Andy Park, is here and it's probably the best poster we've seen come out of the convention. Together the two, along with the recently announced Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet van Dyne (a.k.a. the Wasp), were once a team - and now it is time to pass the mantles down to Scott Lang, Hope van Dyne and an unknown person for Goliath. In the film, Janet Van Dyne was Hank Pym's wife and fellow superhero who disappeared during a mission - all of which prompted him to retire Ant-Man. But considering how obscure Ant-Man was to the average moviegoer before his film, it's worth diving into exactly who each of these actors will be portraying in Ant-Man & the Wasp.

Goggins will play the character of Sonny Burch who will be the nemesis of Ant-Man. But probably some of the biggest, pun intended, casting news from the Marvel panel has to be Laurence Fishburne revealed to be Bill Foster, a.k.a Goliath! Rounding out the remainder of Phase 3 will be next year's Ant-Man & the Wasp.
