Ant-Man and the Wasp has revealed and teased a lot through its marketing period over the last few weeks, but one thing that has been kept under wraps completely from the beginning is Michelle Pfeiffer’s role as Janet Van Dyne, the original Wasp. We haven’t seen even a shadow of her in anything, until now. With the film approaching quickly, we should be starting to see more on the Marvel sequel in
the coming weeks, which begins with a batch of character posters that feature all the main flyers, including Pfeiffer’s Van Dyne.
hWen Pfeiffer was announced to join the tiny sequel last year, fans were raging with excitement for two main reasons. One is the fact that Marvel, once again, was able to lockdown a former Oscar-winning actor to play a huge role in one of their films. Second, the original Wasp is in fact alive and will have a decent sized role in this film, and possibly (hopefully) the future in the MCU. Pfeiffer has hit a recent resurgence in acting and so her signing on to a property and genre that is at an all-time high is no surprise, especially with someone like Michael Douglass playing opposite of her.
I for one am over-the-moon that she’s being included in this film and that she’s being portrayed by Michelle freaking Pfeiffer. Wasp is an all-time favorite Marvel character of mine and we’ll be getting two of her in this movie, which leaves me not only excited, but very interested to see how that works out ons screen. Either way, I’m pumped, and you should be too.
