There is a 21 year difference between Pfeiffer and Lilly and that picture of Pfeiffer is from 2007. She looks like a woman in her late 50s now.

She's playing Ruth Madoff in that picture (Not the best comparison). Here's a recent untouched photo of Pfeiffer:

Michelle is clearly age appropriate to play Evie's Mom, but is still a very attractive woman in her own right, there's no need for hyperbole.

I'd love for that to be the case but let's be real... this is a Janet who's spent the best years of her life far from the people she loved, trapped in an alien and probably hostile dimension... she doesn't really have much reason to be bubbly and playful anymore.

That's assuming she was conscious or that time passed for her at the same rate as for everyone outside. It might not have felt like decades to her.

Janet is stuck in that realm where time is irrelevant, so she shouldn't aged that much anyway.

Hopefully, we'll at least get some flashbacks, maybe featuring a digitally de-aged Douglas and Pfeiffer, in which we'll get to see the pre-Quantum Realm Janet, back in the day when she was bubbly and carefree. I'd love to see that version of Janet because Pfeiffer is often at her sexiest playing more extroverted, confident characters.

I also hope the film keeps to Janet's origins as a socialite heiress and fashion designer. Not everyone has to be a scientist or a professional spy.

Anyway, suffice to say, I simply love this casting choice.

Do people age in the quantum realm?

Douglas is what, mid 70s? Pfeiffer is 59? She's been lost since the 80s. Could it be that Janet was lost at say, 50? Pfeiffer could pass for 50.

In comics, Pym was older than Janet, fwiw.

Urgh why do we always have to worry about age all the time in threads about women. Just move on. There's other more interesting details.

Like how when Hope sees Janet again she should do a version of the dammit Janet song from the rocky horror picture show

Let's follow this thread again

I said Evangeline doesn't look that much older in response to that, because I meant I couldn't buy her (Evangeline) as the mother.

I even put the before.

All your responses are irrelevant.

Any chance we'll see Pfeiffer for more than one film or likely to be a one off?

It's great to see them at all and any more will be a huge bonus.

They're just now working on Ant-Man 2, so if that makes big money they will probably move on to an Ant-Man 3 at a later date in which one parent might die for dramatic effect or Scott & Hope could get married and mommy Janet is there to help Hope on her big day.

Hopefully AM&W makes enough for that to happen. A wedding could be cool and I think there could be a fair chance of one of them dying at some point. Would be nice to hav Pfeiffer in at least 2 films as we get to feel she is in the MCU properly for the period between those films rather than in and out in the same film.

Eh, I hope it did, because I really like the idea of Janet spending her years in the Quantum Realm as some sort of lone hero, fighting all kinds of weird monstrosities.

I guess that could be a solution... we'll see.

I just thought that David E Kelly kind of modelled Ally McBeal after his wife, Michelle Pfieffer.
