Posted 2017/07/27 0 0
The original Ant-Man star has been confirmed to return.
According to Deadline, Greer, who played the ex-wife of Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) in Ant-Man, has just signed to once again play Maggie in Ant-Man and The Wasp. While details of the role weren’t revealed, it’s pretty safe to say that the character is still a part of Scott’s life following the events of Ant-Man, where through her ex’s superheroic actions, she finally warmed up to the idea of Scott being more involved in the life of their young daughter, Cassie (Abby Ryder Forston).
While the plot of Peyton Reed's new film is largely a secret, we do know that the sequel brings back Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man, Evangeline Lilly as Hope van Dyne/Wasp, David Dastmalchian as Kurt, Tip “T.I.” Harris as Dave, and as a man with many interests and a knack for storytelling, Michael Peña as Luis. There are quite a few new additions to the cast well, with Michelle Pfeiffer’s inclusion being the biggest. She’s playing the original Wasp, Janet van Dyne. “She was our dream choice when we were making the first film,” Marvel President Kevin Feige said at Comic-Con. During the making of the first movie, they kept thinking of Pfeiffer for the role. Finally, they decided just to ask her and secured a deal closely before its announcement at Comic-Con.
Randall Park is joining the MCU as SHIELD agent, Jimmy Woo, and Laurence Fishburne is playing a villain, Dr. Bill Foster. As for Hannah John-Kamen, she’s playing Ghost, while Walton Goggins is taking on the role of a weapons designer, Sonny Burch. Michael Douglas, of course, is back as Hank Pym.
Greer has a full slate of upcoming films including the MGM remake of Valley Girl, Richard Linklater’s Where’d You Go Bernadette, and Clint Eastwood’s next film 15:17 To Paris. She can currently be seen on the big screen in Fox’s War For The Planet Of The Apes and soon in the indie film Lemon, which will be out in August.
Ant-Man and The Wasp opens in theaters July 6, 2018.
