Michelle Pfeiffer appears as Janet van Dyne in a new TV spot for Ant-Man and the Wasp that Marvel Studios has released. Janet van Dyne was the original Wasp and the mother of Hope van Dyne, the current Wasp. She was lost in the quantum realm decades ago, as noted in the TV spot.
Director Peyton Reed had earlier noted that the main focus of the Ant-Man and the Wasp will be the rescue of Janet van Dyne from the Quantum Realm. “The big mission is to find Janet,” Reed said, “What that means, ultimately, for our characters on a personal level is one thing and what it means for the larger world is another thing and all the other things are really, you know, stumbling blocks on the path.”
Kevin Feige, Marvel’s head also mentioned the fact that the exploration of Quantum Realm won’t end with Ant-Man and the Wasp. “There are things that you see back there that Peyton has put in there,” Feige said during a press conference. “Where and how they pay off in the near term and the long term remains to be seen.”
The mission of saving Janet may have some side effects too. After living for so much time in the Quantum Realm, Janet may have been changed and act differently. She may also be an antagonist in the film after coming back to Hope and Hank. The actors and the directors both have hinted at this but said that Janet may act a bit different but in the end they are one happy family.
Ant-Man and the Wasp official summary reads – “Scott Lang is grappling with the consequences of his choices as both a superhero and a father. Approached by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym, Lang must once again don the Ant-Man suit and fight alongside the Wasp. The urgent mission soon leads to secret revelations from the past as the dynamic duo finds itself in an epic battle against a powerful new enemy.”
Ant-Man and the Wasp open in theatres on July 6th. Avengers: Infinity War is now playing in theatres. Other upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movies include Captain Marvel on March 8, 2019, the fourth Avengers movie on May 3, 2019, Spider-Man: Far From Home on July 5th, 2019, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in 2020.
