Peyton Reed confirms which potential female hero appears in Ant-Man

08.11.2014by:

ANT-MAN may be in tenuous hands since the departure of Edgar Wright as writer/director, but Marvel is still confident the film will be a winner and not besmirch their stellar track record. Some may find that hard to believe with BRING IT ON director Peyton Reed calling the shots, but things still look positive.

One of the few highlights folks were looking forward to was the inclusion of vital character Janet Van Dyne (ake Wasp) to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the character was not announced at Comic Con. Instead, we learned that Evangeline Lilly would play Hope Van Dyne, daughter to Michael Douglas' Hank Pym. But, it appears that will not be the sole female character from the comics to debut in ANT-MAN.

Speaking to Screen Rant, Peyton Reed confirmed the inclusion of Cassie Lang in the film.

“In the comics, Scott Lang has a daughter, and that’s part of the movie too, in terms of the character dynamics that are going on. That really appealed to me.”

While Lang's actions when trying to steal the Ant-Man suit leads to his training as a hero under Pym is vital, the fact that his daughter is being introduced could add some longevity to the franchise. Cassie Lang eventually becomes Stature, a member of the Young Avengers. The inclusion of the character in ANT-MAN, likely a young child, does not guarantee she will become Stature, but it would be cool if Marvel laid the groundwork for a YOUNG AVENGERS movie down the line.

Hopefully we learn more good news about ANT-MAN soon. Production is just getting underway in anticipation of a theatrical release on July 17, 2015.

Soooooo, Peyton Reed didn't actually confirm any potential super hero. He just confirmed that a character integral to the origin of Scott Lang as Ant-Man is still in the film. But Joblo.com is stretching that comment to allude to the idea that the character may potentially be used as a female hero later on in Marvel? So basically, this is all bullshit.

I don't care if they have to change the origins from the comic, Evangeline Lilly needs to eventually become Wasp.

Uh

I've known about this for a month or so because my friend's daughter had been auditioning for the role and was in the top 3 in contention for the part. Based on HER age and the way things are going movie-wise, methinks this is NOT the direction they're headed.

Cassie Lang becomes a hero in an alternative future in which Hope Pym becomes a villain. Let's not go that route. In any case, if Hope Pym's name in the movie is Hope Van Dyne then it implies that Hank and Janet were never married and that Hank may not have even known about Hope. This implies that Janet Van Dyne was never the Wasp and suggests that Hope Van Dyne will become the Wasp.

I was really onboard with Paul Rudd as Scott Lang but now that the pre-production has played out, I think they should've gone with Hank Pym as the contemporaneous Ant-Man and not messed up potentially seeing Janet Van Dyne as Wasp, a founding member of the Avengers, in the MCU.

Whatever happened to the Rashida Jones rumor of her portraying Wasp?? That would be cool if that actually happened.

If Wright was still involved, I think this would have been as much fun as Guardians of the Galaxy. But since he left, I'm not too sure

didn't get passed the rumor phase although that the idea was more likely when it was believed that Rudd was playing Pym.

I hope ant-man and wasp have the type of relationship they had in the Ultimate series. It was breathtaking.
