I think Mary Elizabeth Winstead has a good shot at being Janet. She's been on Marvel shortlists before, and she's worked with Edgar Wright.

Patrick Wilson as Hank Pym is absolutely perfect. I hope he gets the role.

I don't want her as Janet. I still remember her from her Dawson's Creek days. She seems nothing like Janet at all.

From what I read, Marvel is really concentrating on up and coming actors rather than named stars, because established stars don't want to sign retainers, without huge bonuses for sequels and such.

I think that puts Michelle Williams, like her or not, out of the running.

And yet Gwyneth Paltrow, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, and Jeremy Renner, Samuel L Jackson, and Scarlett Johansson all signed for multiple films? Given MS's ability to cast top-tier actors in pretty much all of their movies, I wouldn't be counting anyone out. Except for Ed Norton and Terrence Howard.

But all the marquee stars play only supporting roles. Even Hawkeye and Black Widow are, for the moment, just support Avengers, who don't have their own titles.

Marvel Studios has never shown any inclination to hire marquee actors to play the leads.

I will only accept Ewan McGregor, if Christian Bale plays Wasp.

Zooey Deschanel.
Yeah, she's currently my number one pick for Janet, too.

I have a hard time picturing Zooey Deschanel as a superhero. Not saying she couldn't pull it off though.

I have a hard time seeing Janet Van Dyne as a superhero, period. But if somebody's going to do an "authentic" Janet, I'd want it to be somebody like Zooey, who can pull off geek chic believably and be fun and entertaining about it.

But since when has Janet been geek chic? She's always been a fabulous glam/posh girly girl to me.

Janet was a shallow socialite. She was more like Paris Hilton with superpowers back in the old Ant-Man and Avengers comics.

Ultimate Wasp was a scientist although I wouldn't say she was geeky.

Unlike Sue Storm I prefer if movie Wasp wasn't a scientist. Janet works better as the more human pov character for the audience.

Kind of like Kat Dennings in Thor... with superpowers.

She would definitely work. She's quite Janet like anyway and could carry off the poshness and rich heiress type. She played that kind of character with Vivian Volkoff in Chuck.
