In Ant-Man and The Wasp, we will finally get to see Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) don the suit she was made for. She was bitter during the original film that she wasn’t allowed to use the technology her father made. But now it’s her time. In a new featurette from Marvel, they focus on the heroine who took too damn long to get to our screens!
Speaking of that, the whole featurette starts with producer Kevin Feige saying that The Wasp is on the cover of the first Avengers comic. Yes, she was right there at the beginning of it all. So she’s a late comer to the MCU but they finally have every character on the cover is on the big screen. That’s pretty cool! But Hope in the films has been fighting for her time to be the heroine she knows she can be. It’s taken her father Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) a long time to realize it, but with her mother gone, she’s the only one who can wear the suit. And to her, being able to follow in her parent’s footsteps means everything.
But IS Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) gone? While the film will not only have fun and action galore, at it’s center it will be an “emotional” family story. Now knowing that Janet is still alive in the Quantum Realm, it becomes Hope’s mission to rescue her and bring her back home. Of course things are never that easy, but Hope won’t give up. Paul Rudd even says that she’s the toughest one in the movie. They have to succeed, right?
However, one of the more notable pieces of information in this featurette is learning that the film will directly tie into Avengers 4. Not Avengers: Infinity War as we had previously speculated. But instead it will tie in the upcoming Avengers film. Which is interesting! Feige says that the characters will become very important “going forward”. So if I would have to guess, I’m thinking they enter some of the Infinity Stones to reverse it’s effects. It’s a weak theory but one I’m going with for now!
