Judy Greer to return for Ant-Man and The Wasp

Judy Greer is always a welcome addition to any film, and it looks as though her involvement with the Marvel Cinematic Universe will continue. Deadline reports that Greer has signed on to reprise her role of Maggie Lang, Scott Lang's (Paul Rudd) ex-wife, in Peyton Reed's ANT-MAN AND THE WASP. Although Judy Greer didn't have quite enough to do in the first film, and, let's be honest, likely won't have much more screen-time in the sequel, I'm still very pleased to see her return.

Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly will star in ANT-MAN AND THE WASP, and director Peyton Reed has said that Evangeline Lilly will definitely be more than a supporting player this time around, as the upcoming ANT-MAN AND THE WASP will be "every bit as much her movie as it is Scott Lang’s." The sequel also stars Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, Michael Peña as Luis, Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet van Dyne, Laurence Fishburne as Dr. Bill Foster, Walton Goggins as Sonny Burch, Randall Park as Jimmy Woo, and Hannah John-Kamen as Ghost.

As for what sort of story ANT-MAN AND THE WASP will tell, we're not sure, but the sequel will bring us plenty of fresh tech which will be able to do "new and stranger things." The suits worn by Scott Land (Paul Rudd) and Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) won't be all that much different from the ones which we've seen before, but they'll still represent an evolution of Hank Pym's (Michael Douglas) technology. Peyton Reed added:

For Ant-Man specifically, in that first movie, the suit, intentionally so, is kind of a relic. It represents his past, so this is really the new iteration that is the modern version of the tech. This is a whole new suit. It's fun, because it's very specific for the needs of the story. The suits are one thing on the comic page. They are fantastic. When you actually have to make it seem realistic in the real world, in three dimensions, you've got to buy it. It's got to be credible.

ANT-MAN AND THE WASP is set for a July 6, 2018 release.
