The sequel to the teeniest Marvel movie to date has entered production.
Okay, so the video doesn’t show us much – if anything – other than minuscule set chairs and the announcement that things are already in motion.
In the post credit scene at the end of the first film audiences were given a glimpse of the Wasp suit that Hank Pym, Hope’s Papa and the original Ant-man, was developing for his daughter, a precursor to her joining their macro-cosmic crime-fighting unit.
Concept art from the mighty Ryan Meindering shows the suit that could be used in the film but to be fair it will never really matter what the Wasps outfit looks like given the ‘hundreds’ of outfits the character has worn in the comics over the years. As long it is sleek, stealthy, and reminiscent of her ‘late’ mothers Wasp suit it’ll be amazing.
Looking to the Future and Further
Way back when Marvel announced their masterplan to continue dominating superhero cine-dom this was one of the titles mentioned by the Marvel Disney big-wigs . Virtually nothing was known about it then, but now? Now we know the following:
- Michelle Pfeiffer will swap black latex for insect wings to play the original Wasp, and Hope’s long thought lost Mama, Janet.
- Laurence Fishburne – is another Giant (Man) from the MCU, Bill Foster
- British actress Hannah John-Kamen is Ghost… (it takes too long to explain who and what Ghost is. Trust us, it ain’t pretty)
- Korean-American actor Randall Park will be Jimmy Woo, a S.H.I.E.L.D. Special Agent
- perennially playing bad guys Waylon Jennings (who we hear is actually really nice) is another villain Sonny Bush.
Lang’s cohorts-in-crime Luis, Kurt, and Dave will reprise their roles, as will Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, and Abby Ryder Forston in their respective roles as Cop and Step-Dad Paxton, ex-wife Maggie, and daughter Cassie.
Ant-Man and the Wasp will again be directed by Peyton Reed, and be released July 6th 2018… wait. That means…it’ll be out a week after Deadpool 2. Oooh. Exciting.
