Wasp Will Have A Cameo In ‘Ant-Man’!

According to Collider, Janet Van-Dyne will make a small appearance in Marvel’s Ant Man this summer. Collider’s Matt Goldberg had a chance to visit the set last year and got an inside look on Wasps appearance in Ant Man. Here’s what Goldberg had to say about her cameo.

In Ant-Man, we see her briefly, although they didn’t cast a name actress for the role because you only get a close-up on her eyes. Wasp, who is Pym’s wife in the movie, appears in a flashback, and while we don’t know if she dies or gets lost in the microverse, Pym blames S.H.I.E.L.D. and resents superheroes. It’s a clever motivation for why Pym hasn’t been active as a superhero for decades, and it also explains why Wasp isn’t a main character in the movie. Furthermore, if she’s been “lost” and isn’t dead, it opens the door to bring her back later even though, like Pym, she’d be much older unless the microverse slowed down time or something.

ScreenRant also got to chat with Kevin Feige about how much Janet Van Dyne factors into Ant Man. Feige told ScreenRant the following.

It factors in, in a number of spoiler-ish ways, but we will see Janet Van Dyne in action in this film. And part of sort of what happened to her. And then we will understand why that is the reason that he doesn’t want his daughter to follow in those footsteps. One of the reasons why he’s always so upset about superheroes in general, dismissive of them in general and also a reason why he doesn’t want her to put on the suit. Because another very logical question in the movie is, why are you hiring this ex-con to put on your suit and do this? The answer is, because he has abilities in cracking security networks and in pulling off heists that nobody else has. Which is really why he needs to do it. But Hope is infinitely more capable of actually being a superhero in the beginning of this film, and we learn sort of that that’s ultimately when Hank reveals for the first time for the audience, and even the first time to Hope, what actually happened in the past and why he’s so nervous about putting on that suit. But there are things that we see towards the end of the film that indicate she could, she could get one of her own.

The confirmation that Janet Van Dyne will be in Ant Man should calm some of the complaints regarding her being excluded from the MCU in favor of her daughter. What do you guys think? 

Does this boost your confidence in Ant Man or is your confidence still the size of Ant?
