Post Rashida Jones and Bryce Dallas Howard for Janet Van Dyne. Who will it be?

Last year during Paul Rudd's debate as Ant Man for the upcoming film named after the character himself, Rashida Jones has been tipped to play Janet Van Dyne (The Wasp) as the female lead in the upcoming movie but now after Michael Douglas' confirmation as Hank Pym, another actress named Bryce Dallas Howard, the very same person that played Gwen Stacy in Spider-Man 3 seven years ago is now another runner up for the character. So who will be doing Janet van Dyne?




Janet Van Dyne best known as the Wasp is a female superhero of the Marvel comics and one of the first five Avengers from the original comics.

Now because the famous Michael Douglas at age 69 has been casted as Hank Pym, Janet van Dyne may have to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the love interest to Paul Rudd's Scott Lang, best known as the second Ant Man.

At first Rashida Jones was linked to doing the role of the character but now with Bryce Dallas Howard being rumored for the character, it's time for us all to decide who we really want for the character in the film.

To make both these choices interesting for all of you Marvel movie lovers and comic book fans reading this article, I'll let you all on one little treat; their relationship with Spider-Man trilogy actor Tobey Maguire. Rashida has been in relationship with Tobey in the real world before the actor got the part as Spider-Man and Bryce Dallas Howard co-starred with him as Gwen Stacy in Spider-Man 3.

Now lets go over the two runner ups one at a time to see who would really get the part as Wasp ;

Rashida Jones has been best known for her appearances with actors Paul Rudd and Jason Segal in films like I Love You Man, Our Idiot Brother, and the Muppets and is very concerned on certain subjects in life that would be considered unbearable like sex, which is also the same subject she agreed with Selena Gomez on one time when the young singer was crying during one of her stage performances last year. That makes her responsible just like the character Wasp and with Paul Rudd casted as Ant Man Scott Lang in the 40's, Rashida would be a very reasonable choice for the female lead in the Ant Man film and without so many other projects to be working on, she should be good to go as Wasp for the film.


Now for Bryce Dallas Howard. Before she was being rumored for the female lead in the upcoming Ant Man, we all know that she played Gwen Stacy in Spider-Man 3 so if she was casted as Janet Van Dyne, she would be just like actor Chris Evans getting a part in another Marvel film after recently doing one part from a previous film. Other than Spider-Man 3 she appeared in films such as Terminator Salvation and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. Even though she is rumored for Wasp, she wouldn't fit the character as good as Rashida because her beauty is starting to dry out and since she is scheduled to appear in Jurrasic World which is set to premier in June 2015, chances of her being cast as Janet van Dyne are very much unlikely to happen but we'll see if she is able to multitask or not as soon as the results turn up.

Now with all said on the two contenders, please feel free to choose who you would want for Janet van Dyne and take your time. The winner won't be decided for a while now since filming isn't to start until this April.

I can't say either choice is very enticing.I pretty much envision Janet as sort of the female equivalent of RDJ's Tony Stark.

BDH's beauty is drying out? F the original post's misogyny.

On topic, while I do feel BDH is a better actress, I do think Jones is a better fit for Janet; however, her with Michael Douglass is just disgusting to me. It just doesn't work for me.

does BDH with Michael Douglas do it for you?

given Jessica Chastain's name being in the running for a moment, i gotta think that there's a definite type that Wright is looking for. Bryce Dallas Howard and Chastain are similar looking, imo. all 3 actresses have freckles; probably a coincidence.

No. I think Douglass does not work for Pym.
Unless there's a younger actor cast as Pym for a flashback with Jones, it's just not interesting or appealing to have her paired with Douglass.

then my fix would be to not have them be a romantic couple. it's not how their relationship started in the books, anyways. it's far less seedy for Pym to just sponsor Janet because she had a desire to avenge herself (w/o the "she looks like a little kid version of my dead wife" motivation). i don't think Jan should be with anyone; at least not with Hank or Scott. she's a socialite. i'm sure that she can pull a date on her own.

Personally, I'd prefer Jones. She already has pretty good chemistry with Rudd, and I kind of doubt they would make her character Pyms s/o, unless she plays Wasp in the opening flashback.

i too want Rashida. but to put on my logic hat for a moment, what convinced me of the absolute greatness of Rashida being in this was the casting of Rudd. but i also expected Rudd to be Pym. that would have made this a no-brainer. it's not so much a no-brainer anymore. the idea might not be to have good chemistry between the two. they might be going for a reluctant partnership.

It's interesting that this is even being discussed, considering that most of these rumors have been shot down in the last 48 hours. The reports are that Jones and Howard are *not* being cast for this movie; and that the female lead is the daughter of the "second male lead," presumed to be Pym.

So, according to the latest information, the better question to ask is what actress *not* named Rashida Jones or Bryce Dallas Howard is going to play the female lead, who is Hank Pym's daughter instead of his significant other?

weren't you the one that warned me about believing stuff like that? Paul Rudd said he wasn't Ant-Man, too.

Rashida's an interesting choice. I have no idea what BDH would bring to the role. I find her... unappealing.

Anyway, this young woman deserves an audition, though she's sworn off blockbusters supposedly:

Maybe the main female lead will be Cassie Lang/Stature?

you do see how the way that you phrased it implies that they couldn't be what you envision, right?

I don't think the MCU version is going to be as dainty/girly as the comic book or animated version.

how do you come to that conclusion? have you read the script? OMG, please send it to me I want to read it too!

almost everything so far suggests they are sticking pretty close to the TSAA-M story
