‘Ant-Man And The Wasp’ Casting Call Confirms Flashback To The 1980s

Michelle Pfeiffer Janet van Dyne Wasp Ant-ManAnt-Man and the Wasp will introduce Janet Van Dyne to the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Michelle Pfeiffer in the role. Fans are eager to see how Janet will presumably return from the quantum realm and now a new casting call indicates that we could see the original Wasp before her disappearance in a flashback to the 1980s.

Central Casting Georgia has posted a casting call for the Ant-Man sequel seeking men and women of all ages to play Argentian locals for a scene set in a park. The casting call notes that the scene in question will take place in 1987, the same year of Janet Van Dyne’s assumed death after she sacrificed herself to disarm a Soviet missile and disappeared to the quantum realm. Of course, the casting call provides no other details on the scene, so whether or not Janet will be included in the sequence is uncertain. However, specifically returning to the same year of the character’s disappearance probably suggests that the scene will involve Janet in some form, before or after her disappearance.

Plot details are currently under wraps, though it is possible that the sequel could further explore Hank Pym’s past and the devastating loss of his wife Janet after her disappearance in the quantum realm. After Scott Lang returned from the quantum realm in 2015’s Ant-Man, Pym was left wondering whether or not it was possible that Janet could have survived as well.

Directed by Peyton Reed, Ant-Man and the Wasp stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne, Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, Michael Peña as Luis, David Dastmalchian as Kurt, Judy Greer as Maggie, Randall Park as Agent Jimmy Woo, Laurence Fishburne as Dr. Bill Foster, Walton Goggins as Sonny Burch, Hannah John-Kamen as the Ghost, and Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet van Dyne.

Ant-Man and the Wasp will be released in theatres on July 6, 2018.
