New animatic from The Avengers has the Wasp appearing in a fan-favorite scene

The Avengers with Wasp

Even though Wasp (Janet van Dyne) is one of the original members of The Avengers and has a long history with the superhero team, director Joss Whedon could not figure out a way to fit the character into the film. He said he tried, however it just would have been too much for a film that was already kind of crowded. But I don't think any of us knew how close Wasp was to actually appearing in THE AVENGERS, based on this new animatic that was released on Youtube over the weekend.

The scene is that awesome fanboy moment in the movie when the camera pans around the entire team during the attack on New York City, except this time Wasp is included. She isn't in her shrunk down form and it's not like the character is the focus of the scene, but it's still interesting to see how far they had worked on the film with Wasp in it before cutting the character from the movie. I'm almost positive Wasp will appear in a future Marvel film. Maybe she'll be teased in ANT-MAN or perhaps she'll make her debut in THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON? Regardless of when or what movie it will be, I do think at some point Wasp is going to get her chance to shine on the big screen.
