Michael Douglas Reveals The Fate Of ‘Janet Van Dyne/Wasp’ In ANT-MAN

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Michael Douglas revealed some new and interesting details about his role in the upcoming Ant-Man film from Marvel.
As many fans had already speculated and suspected, Janet Van Dyne (hife wife in the comics) will indeed be in the movie, but will not be played by Evangeline Lilly.
 “My name is Dr. Henry Pym. I’m an entomologist. I’m also a physicist and I discovered in 1963, a way, a serum to reduce a human being to the size of ant maintaining the strength. Not only that, but I was able to find a way to communicate with the ants. But unfortunately during this process, a tragic personal accident happened with my wife, my daughter, Evangeline, Hope. So I’ve had to pass my powers and strengths onto a mentor.” 

This character he is referring to is of course Scott Lang being played by Paul Rudd. 

“Because my partner, my partner, Corey over there, f–ked me good. Darren Cross, my partner, my mentor, my nemesis, has taken my company and taken it in a different direction. I need help, I desperately need help. I need someone who’s a master thief, someone with a brilliant mind, and somebody who can pull off a really great heist.”


Marvel’s Ant-Man is currently set for a July 17, 2015 release date.
